Tucker's Story...

Say Hello to Tucker!

If you'd like to meet/adopt Tucker please read about Gentle Jake's screening process and complete an adoption application via our website:

Tucke r is a Redbone Coonhound/Greyhound mix, who is approximately 6 years old. He is handsome, fun-loving, easygoing and loves to be with people of all ages/sizes. He is very friendly and has a gentle, calm demeanour.   His movements are very graceful, and his foster Mom says he looks like a deer and runs like a gazelle.   

Don't let Tucker's age fool you, he's an energetic boy who truly enjoys his daily walks and being outdoors. They make Tucker a happy camper and help whittle down his energy. After that, he's content to curl up in your lap, or near you. He enjoys looking out the windows so he can keep tabs on what's going on outside, and teasing his foster sibling, Luna. 

Tucker is a confident/assured dog with a  good natured, calm, quiet and loving personality. He has built a great obedience base since his arrival and now knows his name, understands sit, come and off. He takes treats very gently when offered and will stand patiently while you wipe off his paws at the door. He is a quick learner and very determined to progress. He gets along quite well with other dogs and enjoys the time that he spends playing with Luna. He likes people, and is especially comfortable with ladies, but has no fear of men. He is well behaved when people come to the door or visit. 

He can be quite playful and goofy. Despite his size, Tucker can curl himself into a little doughnut anywhere...he likes to romp around and vies such sweet kisses. He has a long body, with a wiggly bum when he is happy. Tucker travels very well in the car. He walks well on leash most of the time; he can pull at times when inquisitive but can be redirected easily.  He is housetrained and crate trained (he requires a large crate). 

Tucker has been cat tested and does not appreciate them at all. Therefore a home with cats would not be appropriate for him. He would certainly do well in a home with another companion dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tucker, a Ontario Redbone Coonhound/Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Redbone Coonhound/Greyhound for sale in Ontario, or seeking a Redbone Coonhound/Greyhound dog from a breeder in Ontario.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ontario already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Ontario breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Redbone Coonhound/Greyhound breeders who help with Redbone Coonhound/Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ontario paves the way for another one to be saved.
