About Me: As you can see, Tucker is undeniably handsome! Besides that, he is an awesome listener and is a total rock star when it comes to knowing the rules. He has graduated from dog obedience and is very well trained: potty, kennel, walks AMAZING on a leash, knows come, sit, wait, stay, down, look at me and leave it. His very favorite thing to do is go for a W-A-L-K! He will chug along right by your side, checking in with you regularly. He loves to go-go-go at a nice steady pace. Tucker's personal request is that you LOVE walks if you adopt him. Then it's a toss up between food and snuggles! Tucker is extremely smart, treat motivated, affectionate and love, love, loves cuddle time. Be ready for a big blocky head to rest on your shoulder every single night.
In addition to being affectionate and smart, Tucker has also shown us that he is extremely resilient. See, the first couple years of his life were pretty hard on him. Because of this, he requires that you to earn his trust first so he knows you're safe. Since some wonderful people helped get him into the safety of rescue, he has made great strides, working daily learning to be a calm, confident dog. With slow & calm introductions, he does great meeting new people. If you're patient and caring, I guarantee Tucker will be your lifelong, loyal partner. He just needs someone to give him the chance at a healthy life with a supportive family.
Though he has lived with both small and large dogs before, we feel he would do best in a home as an only pet or with a calm balanced dog and with a dog-savvy, experienced family. Young children not recommended. No known allergies.
Are you the family that has a soft spot for this young gentleman? He would love a forever home that will always have his back and advocate for him. There's nothing more rewarding than helping bring out the best in a dog. We're all excited to see how far he can go! Is it with you?
