Meet Tucker, one of the nicest dogs we have ever hosted! This beautiful black dog came to our home just a few days ago, and we’re all in love. He has the sweetest temperament! Okay, he’s a little lacking in the whole “gold” appearance thing, but his spirit is pure gold. Plus, if you’re looking for a dog to stand out from the crowd at the RAGOM picnic in September, do we have a dog for you!
Tucker is a 75-pound neutered male, with long legs and a long body and large feet so he seems like quite a big dog next to our 65-pound female golden. His ancestry and age are a mystery, as he was found as a stray. Best guess on age is about three years, and ancestry…well, he looks a great deal like a Flat-Coated Retriever, but since he’s now a RAGOM dog we’ll call him a golden mix.
Tucker seems to get along with everyone, people or dogs. Two days after his arrival, we hosted a large Easter gathering of many people and dogs, and Tucker got along great with all visitors. He earned free roam of our house in record time, because he’s housetrained, not destructive, and a gentleman around the house.
We’ll know more about his perfect adoptive home as we get to know him better, but he’s probably going to need another dog in the home. When Tucker has been left alone without our resident golden or humans for brief periods, he has become anxious and stressed. But when any family member (human or canine) is present, he’s just the happiest dog ever. His tail never stops wagging.
Tucker would benefit from obedience training with his adoptive family, as he came in clueless about basic commands like “sit”. But he is very trainable and eager to please his humans, and is learning rapidly. He does not pull on leash, which is wonderful, but does tend to get tangled up with our dog when they are walked together. He is extremely interested in the rabbits in our neighborhood, to the point of complete distraction, but with a firm hold on the leash all is well. He’d make a great walking or running companion.
If you are approved to adopt and think Tucker might be a good fit for your family, contact your placement advisor.
Tucker will be happy to meet you at the Brooklyn Park Petco on Saturday, April 18 from 11-2. Look for the black dog with the wagging tail!
