Our Pet of the Week, Tucker!  

Shelter Staff made the following comments about Tucker…

When you look at Tucker, it’s easy to fall in love. He has the sweetest, most trusting face. He has that humble, precious, “I’m here for you, I’ll be here for you through thick and thin” look to him.


Tucker is the type that loves his person with every hair on his squatty, lil short legged body.


He is a happy, affectionate boy who loves leash walking and playing with stuffed toys and just chilling with his BFF.


 It is hilarious to watch him, he grabs a toy and tosses it up in the air to play catch with himself. 


His energy level is about at a medium level and he has pretty good manners.

Tucker will definitely alert when a stranger is near and we feel he will be very protective of his person and be a loyal companion for life.


It would be worth making a “Date” to Come and MEET this young man!  Come Meet Your New Best Friend!

The shelter staff think I am about 3 years old.

I have been at the shelter since May, 2023.
