Tucker came into our shelter on 2/1/16. He is a handsome 2 ½ year old Walker Hound/Fox Hound (mix) that weighs 46 pounds. He was surrendered to Animal Control because his owner simply didn't want him anymore. Very sad but we are happy to have him. There is nothing wrong with Tucker! He is a delightful mid-sized dog who really WANTS and deserves to be WANTED and we are so happy to help him make his dreams come true!
Tucker loved to play with his feisty and fun roommate Sylvia, but she recently got adopted. She would run like the wind and he loved to try to keep up with her. (He likes his girls leggy and FAST!) And the way they would flirt with each other was very funny.
Tucker enjoys visitors so much that he is often all over the place with his excitement when he has company. He is a smart dog though, and is learning to “be still” when Sigrid, our dog handler, asks him to.
Tucker was a real hit at the Memorial Day celebration up on Wintergreen Mountain. He was friendly with dogs and kids and didn't seem bothered by the loud music. He was well mannered on leash and didn't bark. He rode well in the van too. Clearly, he enjoyed his day out!
Tucker does have some energy to burn off, so he would like an active family who would take him on interesting walks and he would probably love to have a dog friend too. He has been known to try to dig out of certain fenced areas…but not all fenced areas. We are trying to figure him out in regard to this.
GOOD WITH DOGS. GOOD WITH KIDS.
