Tucker landed in a local animal shelter looking, well, pathetic.
Skin-bone, dull eyes, head hanging low and one eye that was bulging out and on the verge of rupturing.
This was one very sad looking dog.
The shelter asked us but we didn’t have any room.
They called again saying not a rescue was able to take him and his time was coming to an end.
We asked for permission to use this photo a shelter employee had taken, and using some photo shop magic we put out the plea far and wide for someone, anyone, willing to foster this one dog.
And then there was this one family. They have adopted a couple dogs from us, dogs with special needs and they had a teen-ager that had been asking to foster a dog.
The pieces fell together like a puzzle!
Before they even picked up Tucker from the shelter he had an appointment with our veterinarian.
So, in one week Tucker:
+came to our program;
+went into a loving home;
+is sleeping on cozy, comfortable doggy beds;
+spent two days at our vet, who we think is simply the best!
+was neutered, heart-worm tested, wormed, caught up to date on his shots and the eye, which had ruptured, was removed.

Tucker is a 3-4 year old Black and tan hound.
But he is small, about the half of the size of a hound.
He is house trained, crate trained and is doing very well with the other dogs of the house.
He is very sweet and a lovely dog.
Tuckers next step in this rescue adventure is to find a forever home.
Tucker is available for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment.
