I’m Jen and along with my pup Archie, we welcomed Tucker into our home over Labor Day weekend this year! Tucker was very fearful at first; it took his foster mom and I about 30 minutes to get him into the car! Now, as you can see, he prefers to drive! Tucker was also very skittish – even the ice maker scared him and made him run outside! He was also very timid, it took him a whole week to actually come into the master bedroom at the back of the house. He’s a different dog now, obviously very comfortable in all locations of the house and gets along quite well with his new doggie brother!
They’ve managed to get into lots of trouble chasing squirrels in the backyard and stealing freshly made bundt cakes off the kitchen counter! Archie and I are so blessed to have Tucker in our family!! Big thanks to Golden Bond for rescuing him from his previously deplorable home and bringing him into our lives!!
Tucker was adopted on September 8, 2015.
Tucker’s Available Story:
Hi, I’m Tucker (#2605)! I’m an 84-pound, big, beautiful guy. I love to be with you and will follow you around the house. Tennis balls are the best! I would be happy holding them all day, and even happier if you would throw them for me. I’ve been living with another large Golden and we get along well and like to play. I have a play group of two other Golden as well and we all get along and are willing to share toys. Initially, I was anxious when my person left, but I am pretty comfortable now.
Note from foster mom: Tucker is going to be an amazing dog. He is very mellow and loves to meet other people and dogs. His previous home had neglected his health and he mostly lived in the backyard, so had not been exposed to the wider world nor had he been on a leash. He is very quick to learn and has picked up the routine and basic commands in two weeks. He heels beautifully on a halti. He needs to continue with his obedience training. He is very eager to please and is highly tennis ball motivated. He had a skin issue from a flea allergy that is resolving, but he is still growing in some of his fur. He will counter surf when home alone, so I am learning to keep the food off the counters.
