Tucker was originally posted for adoption, then placed on "hold" because he required some training for over excitement on lead around new dogs. His current foster mom has been awesome and is working with our trainer, but we think Tucker would do best in a new foster home with less commotion and less dogs. Although he does well with the 2 dogs in the home, he came to the party as a young pup, in their home.  Tucker is learning to walk more calmly on leash and calmly when passing by other dogs.  He definitely will need continued training to keep him on his path to being the best dog he can be!  He walks on a transitional leash (similar to a gentle leader but better) and using treats to stay focused on working with his handler.  He is food motivated and Tucker is excelling with the proper communication.  If his new potential family or foster has a dog, Tucker would do best with a very calm female dog that is not reactive and can be a positive influence on him. Tucker is still learning boundaries and rules in this human world. 

Tucker is a typical playful pup, he is 55lbs and 8 months old, DOB 4/20/23. Tucker hasn’t had the best start to his short little life, but everything has changed since he came into rescue! He is learning quick but definitely a work in progress. We are hopeful to find a family that will help teach him the ropes and be his best friend!  Tucker does live with a cat but he is too much for the cat and will chase if the cat runs, so a cat-less home is best. Also, older children best since he will be a larger dog when full grown and could easily knock down a toddler. 

Tucker is completely vaccinated and he is neutered.  

Due to his breed mix we are looking for a home with a fenced in yard, not electric so he can expend his young dog energy. 

If you are interested in Tucker, please submit an online application so we can learn a little about you to make sure Tucker would be a perfect match for you and your family. We are looking for local adoption within a 45 mile radius of Avon Lake Ohio, due to our trial adoption process.  Adoption fee/donation is $ 175.00.
