Tucker is a eight-year-old male Shih Tzu who weighs 12 pounds. He was surrendered into rescue because his human dad was allergic to him. He is a relaxed little guy who loves to soak up the sun by the window or lounge at your feet. He enjoys walks and playing “fetch” and likes to give “high fives”! Tucker is super friendly and everyone who meets him is taken in by his great personality. We guarantee you will fall for this sweetie within 5 minutes of meeting him.
He is very playful - he loves chew toys and chasing plush squeaky toys all over the house. His foster bought some plush mice in the shape of Star Wars characters for the dogs and Tucker has commandeered the Chewbacca mouse. :)
One favorite thing is that he knows how to give "high fives" and it is probably one of the most adorable things we've ever seen. The other most adorable thing ever is that when he wants to get comfortable, he will just plop down on his belly with his legs out behind him. One of the pictures in his profile shows his favorite pose.
Tucker has lost vision in one eye due to dry eye disease and will need to be on medicated eye drops for the rest of his life. However, you wouldn't even notice because Tucker gets around great. In fact, he loves walks! Tucker could go on 20 walks a day if you took him. He loves the smells and sights of the outdoors. He is quick to give any visitor you meet a kiss on the hand. He gets alone fine with the other dog and the cat in his foster home.
Extra information- Tucker is on an eye medication called Tacrolimus. A compounding agency prepares the eye drops and will mail it directly to your house.
