Tucker is a fun, happy 16-month-old tri colored boy. He
loves life and still has lots of puppy energy. He plays
with all kinds of toys and balls and loves to take THEM
ALL out at once. He is an excellent swimmer and has been
getting his exercise through retrieving tennis balls in
the lake at his foster home.
He is curious about meeting new dogs and loves to sniff
and play with them. He's fine with meeting strangers and
likes to give them a lick. He plays beautifully (albeit
constantly and with GUSTO) with both of his foster siblings
and would love to have a doggy playmate in his forever home.
He loves to lick your face and lay in your lapâbut just
for a minute, because he's VERY busy!
was purchased as a pup to do goose work on a golf course
where his family lived. But since he wasn't properly trained
to do this work, he chased the golf carts instead and was
hit several times. Happily for him, his owner realized he
needed a different kind of home. So far we haven't seen
any carry-over to car chasing, which is great news!
At 8 weeks of age he broke his leg jumping out of a golf
cart. This healed break isn't giving him any big problems,
but because of this he probably won't be a good candidate
for serious competitive sports. He would love to be an active
pet and try some sports for fun.
he spent so much time outside in his first year of life,
he sometimes forgets he shouldn't use the bathroom inside
and has occasional accidents. If his new family is patient
and supervises him, he will learn that outside is the only
place to go.
Since he is still very puppy-like, he will only be placed
in families with older children. He usually jumps up (exuberantly)
when greeting people and sometimes gently ˝mouthsţ your
hands and face like a puppy (we are working on both, but
this training will need to be consistently reinforced).
now knows come, sit, down, paw, crate and wait (most of
these he learned in about a week!!). He learns quickly,
is treat-motivated and would be a fun dog to teach tricks
and other skills. He will need an active home who will challenge
his mind and his body every day. He has a soft, sweet personality
so he needs humans that will keep all of his training fun,
positive and happy.
He is still a puppy and accustomed to go-go-going all day
long (working on the golf course). If his exercise needs
are not met (or even sometimes when they are) he has a hard
time settling down in the house and just wants to keep playing.
This will improve with training and maturity. We are using
a crate to help him learn to take rests and for when he
can't be supervised.
perfect home would be with an active family or person who
loves doggie kisses and wants Tucker be a part of almost
everything they do. They also will need to supervise him
to help him practice good habits, continue his training
and get him the exercise and mental stimulation he needs.
We are requiring a positively-based obedience class to
help Tucker bond with his people and learn the limits and
rules of his family's home. Tucker is microchipped and up
to date on shots. He is being fostered in CT.
