Tucker is a 6-year old Lhasa Apso who is being fostered in Port Talbot, South Wales. He is an ex-breeding dog whose character is developing nicely in his foster home. When excited he turns circles and “punches” the air with his paws. He loves to cuddle and snuggle. His tongue hangs out of the left side of his mouth as he has no teeth to hold it in. Tucker loves being around people although he does appear to prefer females. Tucker loves cuddles and fuss. He will play on the floor with 5+ children nicely. He has not encountered any younger children as yet.
Tucker loves the company of his younger foster brother. He doesn’t seem to bother the older dog. Since being in foster care Tucker has learned to play nicely. Tucker doesn’t bother about the cat. When he first came, he would bark but now doesn’t react. Tucker has been left with other dogs for up to 2 hours. He has not been left on his own at all.
Tucker sleeps in his crate at night and will on occasion take himself into the crate during the day/evening. Tucker is now able to feed close to the other dogs without growling and snarling. He will still growl if the others attempt to approach him while eating. He will allow his foster mum to remove the food and will now wait his turn if having treats. He has settled and improved greatly. Tucker is now comfortable with appliances such as TV, washing machine, dryer etc. He loves feet and will steal your socks from the washing and take to his bed or the garden and hide. He loves positive praise and is keen to please. Tucker has improved greatly in this area and is able to walk nicely on the lead.
We think Tucker would be happy where the people are at home mostly. Tucker will need another friendly/playful dog for company. He could live with a cat. He would like having children to cuddle and play with and loves lots of walks on the lead. Tucker would demand a space on the sofa and needs to be loved.
Please remember, if you have a dog and it is not neutered, it is against our policies to re-home a dog with you.
Tucker is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with his flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Port Talbot, South Wales.
