Facts about Tukka

Tukka is a great dog who had a real rough start in life. His prior family didn't realize the responsibility of having a dog and unfortunately kept him crated most of the time. Animal control got involved and recommended they surrender the dog since they could not provide the time he really needed. Since he was crated so much, he did not get the foundation of basic manners we like to see at this age and he's a "work in progress" if you will. He's responded brilliantly to training while with us here and we know he will continue to shine if taken to an appropriate training class to get the rest of the basics down. He is extremely food motivated and smart, so he will be a fun dog to work with!

Due to his poor impulse control, we are recommending that he go to a home with teens+, while he is a friendly dog he can be grabby with treats and still does not understand personal space. He is over the top in play with other dogs and would do well with a very tolerant dog who can handle his exuberance. We don't think Tukka would do well with cats.If you are interested in adopting please visit the shelter or you may inquire via email - or call 978-452-7781.

Our Adoption Process...

You must be 18 years or older to adopt an animal. A valid ID is required.

If you own your own home, please provide proof of home-ownership; a mortgage receipt, tax bill, water bill or deed will suffice.

If you rent, please bring your lease which states the type of pet you are interested in and that it is accepted or the name and phone of your landlord so we can verify the pet is allowed. Inquire with your landlord about any size or breed restrictions.

Please check with your home owner’s insurance company or landlord to find out if they have any restrictions on the breed(s) of dog they cover. Common breeds that may not be covered include: Pit Bulls, Doberman Pinschers, Rottweilers and German Shepherds.

For the health and safety of the pet you are interested in adopting and your existing pets, we ask that you provide proof of current vaccinations and spay/neuter status for pets in your home. (We may be able to call your veterinarian if you do not have a copy available.)

A new pet is a family decision and we ask that all members of your family meet the pet and agree on the suitability for your household.

If you already have a dog(s) in your home please bring the dog(s) with you to meet the dog you are considering to see if they are compatible.

Complete an adoption application and talk with a staff member for more information about the animal you are considering.
