Tucker-ADOPTED!

Tucker is an absolutely adorable 1-2 year-old Beagle mix male with short legs suggesting he might have a little Basset Hound in his family tree. He and his compadre Travis showed up one day at a 44 acre farm and hung around for 3 weeks before they decided to let their guard down and start interacting with the human residents. It’s thought that they were abandoned by hunters. We were contacted to help them so they made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they would be able to find wonderful indoor homes as treasured members of their very own families. Tucker is no longer a shy boy and loves attention from his human friends. Interestingly, he and Travis seem to have had enough of each other as they are usually quite snarly towards each other now. Tucker has done well with all other dogs he meets though so might enjoy having a new canine buddy or two in his adoptive home. He would do best with a yard with an aboveground fence to keep that Beagle nose from leading him astray. Tucker trots along nicely on a leash with his little tail wagging the whole time. He’s very food-motivated (as all good Beagles are!) and learned the sit command quite quickly. Tucker has done well with crate-training in his foster home and with some consistent, positive direction on the part of his new family, should be able to master the rules in his new home fairly easily. This charming little guy is going to be a true delight for the lucky person or family who welcomes him home. Tucker weighs about 20 pounds and 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.
