Meet Tuck

Hi all this gorgeous dog is Tuck.

Before you apply please read his bio!

Absolutely no chickens, cats, small animals or children. Though he coexists with other dogs I believe he would benefit from being the only pet, a training contract and breed experience will be required for adoption.

Tuck is a beautiful 2 yr old neutered male, 65/70 lbs, up to date on vaccinations and micro chipped. He has the most beautiful caramel eyes I've ever seen and is extremely gentle when taking treats from my hand.
If you've been looking for a new best friend, hiking buddy, here he is!

Tuck loves to play fetch with the extra large squeaky kong tennis balls, tug of war and his doggie pool. He is housebroken, crate trained, comes when he is called but shows no evidence of other training.
Tuck can be a giant teddy Bear with the right handler(s), thinks he's a lap dog but he is definitely people selective, if he chooses you, you'll have a lifetime of unconditional love and commitment.

Tuck is from West Virginia where he was surrendered for killing chickens. Unfortunately that's all the back information available on him. The shelter environment was not ideal for Tuck. He developed severe anxiety issues, starting chasing and mutilating his tail which was amputated before he headed to New England.
I love this dog and he is nothing but a gentle giant to me. Unfortunately he doesn't feel the same about other household members. My son's beard seems to be a trigger for anxiety issues and will send him into a tail spin.

Tuck will need a fenced yard, he is NOT a dog for the family barbecue or dog park.
Tuck will need stress free decompression time to get used to his new environment. He is on anti anxiety medication and will need to continue these. I believe as Tuck settles in to a quieter home his anxiety issues will decrease.
Tuck is quick to attach to his person and wants nothing more than to be with you.
Please watch out for loud noise like thunderstorms, he definitely doesn't like them and will head to his safe place, his crate.
Tuck will require several meet and greets to insure he is comfortable with his potential adopter(s).
Tuck will need sedation and a muzzle for vet visits.
Do you have the time, patience and understanding that Tuck would require?


Tuck is fostered in Gloucester Massachusetts.
