If you love Labs, you are definitely going to want to meet Tucker. This sweet 3 year-old boy looks to us like a Lab/Boxer mix male and what a gem he is! He found himself at a high-kill county dog shelter right before Christmas and was facing euthanasia in the overcrowded shelter. Fortunately, a neighboring humane society pulled him to save his life and then contacted us for help with him. This boy arrived at the shelter VERY underweight so it looks like he had either been on his own for awhile or neglected in his previous home. He is working on putting on another 10 pounds or so in his foster home. Fortunately, he has a great appetite so he should reach his ideal weight without too much trouble. Everyone who has met Tucker has commented on what a NICE dog he is, including our vet. Tucker does great with other dogs and is kind, gentle, and loving with all people that he meets. He likes to lean against his human friends when he’s out for a walk and would likely enjoy being a lap dog as well. He keeps his crate spotless although he would much prefer to be out and not crated. We can’t say for sure that he’s housetrained but with some supervision, he should pick up the house rules very quickly. Tucker was very stoic and serious in front of the camera so you will have to meet him to see what a sweet boy he is! Tucker weighs about 56 pounds currently but is working on gaining about 10 to be at his ideal weight. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Tucker. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
