Tucker is a stunning 1 1/2 year old PB Golden Retriever. He is tall, almost 5ft on his hind legs, and weighs 74 lbs. He is UTD on his shots and will be neutered in the next few weeks. Tucker was lovingly surrendered to RAGOM as his owner had asthma that was not being controlled with the medication as they hoped. He was in a very loving home that ran an in-home daycare and that had resident children as well. He was with another dog at the time. He was well taken care of and very loved at his prior home. Since having Tucker 16-029 in my home I can tell you a few more items.Move over FM!!! I have some things to say to you all. First I love, love, love, love tennis balls and playing fetch. Like seriously, looove to play fetch. I am a super good boy who will get the ball and return it to you. I will drop it if you say drop it, or leave it. If I don't, it's because I am so excited to be playing with you. But that's ok, because FM will stick her hand in my mouth and grab it out and I don't even mind. I just want to play!!! Also I love to cuddle!!! It's my favorite. I try not to jump on you when you walk in the door, and am pretty good at it. I do however like to sit on my hind legs and give you my front paws, which tends to lead to a hug. I'm a great hugger...Ball, ball, ball, ....
Sorry guys, Tucker got distracted by one of the many tennis balls in the house. He is a good boy. Know basic commands; sit, stay, go, lay down, up, down, get in the bathtub... The last one is my favorite, since it's so muddy out, he gets pretty dirty. He is very comfortable around small children. I introduced him to my 6 year old, 4 year old and 3 year old nephews and niece and he did just fine, no nipping, growling or signs of distress. Because he is a larger boy he might accidentally knock a child over, but with proper supervision it should be a non issue.He allows us to wipe his paws when he comes in the house, but does go into submission when we get to his back feet. Something we are working on with him. He also goes into submission when putting on a regular type harness for walks, but we have found that using an Easy Walk harness works well. When putting it on, giving him a treat makes the experience enjoyable for him. He enjoys going for walks and exploring what's new. He does not really pull that hard on the harness, but because he is such a strong dog it may take a bit of muscle to reign him back.He has been introduced to other dogs and does great. I have not yet heard him bark in the time we have had him, so he's a quiet dog.
He has not shown any signs of resource guarding. He allows me to put my hand in his food while he is eating, allows me to take his toys out of his mouth and has never snapped or growled.He loves to run and be active, so his ideal home would be an active family that can go on walks, runs, bike rides, and letting him run free. He has jumped a 3 ft fence so a 4 ft or even better, 5 ft fence, is ideal so he can just run around. He has free roam of the house and has not had accidents or been destructive. He has not pulled anything out of the trash, nor has he counter surfed for anything.Does Tucker sound like your new "Good Boy"?? Let's find him his Fur-ever home!!
