I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
This handsome boy is Tucker, a sweet pittie/hound mix with a sad beginning. Maybe you can be his happy ever after?
Tucker came in as a stray - thin, dull coat, feral behavior, his face showing the scars of an unloved life. But things have changed quite a bit for Tucker. With time and attention, he's become a happy, energetic, fun-loving boy who wants nothing more than to be the center of your attention, and you will absolutely be his world.
He's about 2 years old, 65 lbs, neutered, UTD on medical, crate & leash trained and housebroken. Because of the fact that he lived most of his young life with no training at all, Tucker needs a committed person who will give him structure and routine, reinforcing his present training through patience and consistency. He knows sit, down, stay and come (sometimes, lol). He has the internal strength to sit patiently and watch my dogs eat first, then he gets his food, although he will drool a waterfall while doing so., He's very eager to please, and is willing to do what it takes to be a good boy and win your heart.
He likes my 2 calm, couch potato dogs (female pitties), and knows how to fall in step with them and be a couch potato, too. He would also be great as an only dog, as he craves love and attention, and would be glad to be the object of all your affection.
While he's friendly with people and kids, he takes some time to warm up and trust. The more "alpha" his person, the quicker he warms up, as this gives him a sense of stability and leadership. I was kissing him on the face the day I brought him home from the shelter - he's not a fearful or aggressive, he's just aloof and skittish until he can trust you. Food definitely helps, lol.
Tucker is a young, goofy adolescent that doesn't know his own strength. As such, he wouldn't be appropriate with small children (ie: knock them over just by kissing them) and would do well in a home with a young, strong adult. The ideal home for Tucker would be an athletic single/couple who want a 4 legged furbaby. He would soak up all the love and attention you could offer, and he would return it tenfold. Whether it's talking to him, taking him for a jog, petting him, wrestling with him or just hugging and kissing him, Tucker gives the most wonderful doggie hugs, complete with wiggling upside down and burying his big head into your lap.
If you want the perfect adult companion, and a dog that will love you to the final beat of his heart, Tucker is your boy.
