Tucker is a big handsome boy with a wonderful personality. He is easy going but can be a touch shy at times. Tucker was found as a stray with what looked like an injury to his right front shoulder, however after the shelter vet checked him and cleaned him up it appeared to be a small apprasion which he has healed from. After Tucker was neutered he developed a hot spot where his cone was so he was treated with antibiotics after having the area under his neck shaved and cleaned up. It has taken Tucker a couple of weeks to start feeling better. He is now out playing with one of the other foster dogs and resident dogs. He is learning to play fetch with balls and toys. He has been doing pretty well at bringing it back to the person throwing, but when he gets tired he lays down and chews on the toy.
Tucker is a little underweight so he has been getting extra food to add some weight. He takes his food and treats nicely. Tucker is in need of basic training and when asked to sit he just looks at you not ready yet to comply. With the correct treats he will sit. He loves to be with people and will even try to wiggle his way onto anyone's lap that will let him.
He likes being with people and dogs. Tucker is crate trained and quiet while in his crate unless someone comes to the front door then he will bark a little. He has tried to break out of his crate a couple times, but it is usually if he hears a lot of other things going on in the other room. If introduced correctly Tucker may get along with a cat. He has met the foster's cats that are use to dogs and he has not shown any aggression to them, more interest then anything. If you have a chain link fence with a "U" shaped gate latch you will want to secure it because Mr. Smarty Pants knows how to open it.
Overall, Tucker is a wonderful boy that will bring joy to his family.
