And now a few words from me:
Hi everyone, it’s me Tuckson, but everyone calls me Tuck. I’m a fun-loving boy who enjoys learning new things. I enjoy my foster siblings (a mini-dachshund and a standard poodle); once introduced properly I realized how much fun playing together can be. I get a 4-km walk every morning and I love it. I’m all go, go, go and I get to smell new smells and meet other people. I do bark at other people in a friendly way, just saying “Hi, come and pet me”. I love it when people make a fuss over me. I am also a good soccer player and can handle a ball very well, I even bring the ball back to you and give you a soft “woof” telling you that the ball is there. Yup, I’m just a happy boy! Oh, did I mention that I’m adorable, very cute and a real love-bug?
And now a few words from my foster family:
Tuck is a wonderful dog and full of puppy energy. He is sweet, loving and adorable. Being a puppy, Tuck is willing to do anything. He is very smart and would do very well in a home that continues with his basic obedience. Tuck is housetrained and will whine and/or go to the door when he wants out. He loves the outdoors and would love a family who is willing to take him places to ensure his wonderful social skills remain. Tuck was a bit timid when meeting the dogs in our foster home, but quickly realized how much fun other playful dogs can be. Tuck sleeps in his crate at night. He also travels well in a crate on road trips. Tuck would make a wonderful addition to any home that is willing to include him and keep up with his training.
