This happy little guy came to us from a shelter partner where he had been found stray. Poor fellow has been through the wringer - heartworm positive, obvious sun damage to his coat, evidence of a healed skin infection (fleas?) on his back, and a stubbed off tail. Thankfully, all of that is in his past as he has been treated for heartworm, and his coat is growing back. In 6 months or so, he will look like a different dog! If you have been to the farm and have met Matty, he is very Matty-ish ?
.
Tucker definitely has his opinions, but he's great with other dogs (he will resource guard food/high value treats), has ignored the farm cats, is learning recall, follows when asked (ok, that has taken a bit of work), and learns routine really quickly. Tucker is very nicely crate trained, is very food motivated, and walks nicely on leash.
.
Tucker does have some mild separation anxiety (he barks when left, but stops soon after) so would not be suited to apartment living. He enjoys having a dog friend or two, and would really appreciate a fenced yard. Since we do not have history on Tucker, he will not be placed with younger children (think teenager on up). Tucker would make an excellent companion for someone unable to commit to the exercise needs of a younger dog. Can you give Tucker a soft place to fall?
