Tucker is a big, sweet Brittany weighing 53 lbs. He gets excited to eat, going for a walk, or meeting other dogs, but will settle down with gentle directions. Tucker gets along well with other dogs. He leaves dogs alone that don’t want to be pestered and acknowledges dog that want to play, though he prefers to run rather than wrestle. He is very gentle around the 15-year-old Brittany of the house. He spent the weekend with a couple of cats and did really well. Tucker is trained to the invisible fence and has only needed the audio boundary alert. I watched him chase a deer and he stopped well within the fence limit. He really enjoys investigating the acreage and comes running when he hears a whistle. He pulls on the leash on his morning walks and we are working on that. His owners reported separation anxiety, though after a few days in his foster home, he seems fine to be left home. I think it helps that there is another dog with him and he is getting plenty of exercise. The perfect home for Tucker would include another dog, someone home a good portion of the day, and a yard that is fenced (physical or invisible). In return this sweet soul will give you unlimited love and affection. No sight unseen adoptions for Tucker. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit. If you think Tucker is the boy for you complete the adoption application Tucker was an owner surrender to rescue. His former owners had many life changes, they had moved, Tucker no longer had a yard to run in. They were traveling or gone several hours a day. His former family wanted only the best for him and contacted ABR. We took him into our rescue program. He is neutered and micro chipped. He is current on all vaccinations, is Heart Worm negative and is on Heart Worm Preventative.
