Introducing Tux, the brilliant 8-month-old Labrador Retriever/Shepherd mix who is as intelligent as he is affectionate. Tux currently weighs about 60 lbs and will be a large boy when fully grown.
Tux's intelligence shines through in everything he does. He has already mastered the commands to sit and shake! Tux's sharp mind and eagerness to please make him a quick study, and he will be a fast learner.
Tux is a pro when it comes to giving hugs and kisses. Whether you've had a long day or simply need a pick-me-up, Tux's generous displays of affection are guaranteed to brighten your mood and bring a smile to your face. Tux gets along with everyone he meets: dogs, cats, and older children. He cannot wait to see if his forever home also has comfy dog beds or couches, and what kind of treats he can get.
Tux has a particular fondness for tennis balls. The moment he spots one, his tail wags with excitement, and he's ready for a game of fetch. Tux's enthusiasm for playtime is infectious, and he will happily entertain you for hours as he retrieves the ball. Running around in a fenced-in backyard is one of Tux's favorite things to do. His boundless energy and love for outdoor activities make him the perfect companion for an active family. Whether it's playing tag, chasing tennis balls, or going on an adventure with the family, Tux is ready to go!
Tux is super excited to meet his forever family, apply on our site today to adopt Tux!
Tux is neutered, up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations, and microchipped.
**Please note: completing an "adoption inquiry" via Adopt-a-pet/Petfinder does not constitute an HFG Dog Rescue adoption application. All adoption applications must be completed on www.hfgdr.org**
HFG Dog Rescue is a 100 percent foster-based rescue located in Berkeley Heights, NJ with a sister location, The Almost Home Wellness Center, in Aiken, SC. All of our dogs are rescued from kill shelters in SC + GA and once ready for adoption live in loving local NJ foster homes until they find forever families of their own. Our fosters begin basic training, housebreaking, and leash-walking skills to help pair you with the perfect pup for life!
In order to apply for adoption and set up an individual meet and greet with one of our dogs, please visit us at www.hfgdr.org.
