Facts about Tux

  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Meet Tux. This handsome guy is an 9-month-old sweetie. He really is an all-around mixed breed guy. Dad is a variety of breeds and mom is a variety of breeds which means that Tux is his own unique combination of who-knows-what and weighs about 40 pounds. Our best guess is some shepherd and some border collie. Mom definitely has some beagle, but we don't see that in Tux. Tux came to us along with his mom Little Miss, his dad Leo, and his sister Cocoa Bean--all of whom are up for adoption.

Tux can be a little unsure of new people and places. However, after he takes a minute or two to size up the situation he is relaxed, silly, and snuggly. Tux's greatest love is other playful dogs. He loves his dad bunches, but also loves to play with other young, silly dogs--this will be a requirement in his forever home. Tux's other great love is the garden hose, something we just recently learned.

Tux has never really spent much time with cats and kids. We think Tux could get used to cats with some training. Our impression is that he would be curious and maybe even afraid at first. As for kids, Tux would do best with older kids who are able to give him a minute or two before jumping right in with hugs and kisses. With time and more socialization, this aspect in Tux's personality could change for the better. He just isn't 100% there yet.

Tux is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartwom negative, and microchipped. He is also solidly housebroken, but has never been crated. He does well being confined to one room of the house when unsupervised.

The first step is to complete the adoption application in the link below. Please be sure to include any questions you have directly on the application. After we review the applications, we will arrange individual meet and greets. Tux’s adoption fee is $175.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a rescue/ rhoming service that provides education and assistance for owners in our community to keep pets in their home. When that is not an option or we come across animals in need, we will take them into our foster-based program, work with them, seek all necessary vetting, and find them the perfect home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do various adoption events in the community. If you would like to meet one of our available adoptables, please email us!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to complete the adoption application on our website. Once we have reviewed the applications, we will contact the potential adopters to arrange a meet and greet. This can take several days depending on the popularity of the animal.
