Meet Tucker

Meet our new foster pup Tucker. Isn't he adorable? He really is a sweet dog and reminds me of a younger verson of our own lab Chase. It's like his younger brother. He's so photogenic too, the whole time I was taking pictures of him, he just stared at the camera. A natural!

Here's Tucker's story:
We actually found Tucker ourselves. I was recently a bridesmaid in a wedding and the weekend of the wedding is when we found him. We were on our way to our friend's house one night and this dog was running around at the entrance of a neighborhood. He definitely looked lost. We stopped to see if he had a tag (which he didn't) and checked to see if he had a microchip (he didn't). We figured he belonged in the neighborhood nearby, so we searched for an hour with no luck. I didn't want to leave him alone, but I also didn't want to take him if he lived there. He didn't even know us, but he stayed by our sides and even jumped in our car, I thought he had to belong to a family. Not knowing what to do, I called the lady at the shelter I foster for and asked her what to do. She said if it was her dog, she would appreciate if someone took in her dog instead of leaving it outside. So I did. We advertised for two weeks. I left my name at local shelters and vet clinics, I posted flyers in the neighborhood nearby where we found him, I posted an ad on Craigslist and checked Craigslist routinely, and I put an ad in the paper. Not one call. So we put him in the foster program.

Tucker loves to be around people and dogs.
He absolutely loves toys.
He isn't completely trained but he learns very quickly.
He is Chase's sidekick and identical twin.

He has a story. His past is unknown, his present is happy, and his future looks bright.

Happy Wednesday my friends,
