TUCKER is a
Name A Boxer
Thank you Jenny Sams for naming Tucker.
“If I were to add another boxer to my family
this would be his name, so why not share it!”
TUCKER IS PATIENTLY WAITING FOR HIS FOREVER HOME
Tucker is ready to be adopted. Read the latest report
from his foster mom:
“Tucker is doing great! His
skin condition has cleared
up nicely, however, he still has some redness around his eyes that should
disappear soon. His dream would be to live with a family where he can run
around and play all day.
He is just such a happy dog and so well behaved!
Tuck's tail never fails to crack people up when it is going a mile a minute. He
will gladly drop at your feet whatever toy he happens to be playing with in
hopes that you will throw it just one more time. Once we go inside after our
play session, he flops down on the floor like a Boxer-Rug.
He is getting along great with his foster siblings as
well as any people who come by the house. He is definitely a lover, not a
fighter! Tucker is patiently waiting for his forever home, and no dog is more
deserving to have a wonderful life!?
04/15/09: Look at my new pictures!
Tucker has returned to the vet
several times since our last update and he finally seems to be
showing much improvement. His last appointment was with a
Dermatology Specialist because we were worried that his
condition was declining.
Tucker started to shake his head and, as we suspected, it was
determined that he had infections in both ears. He was started
on another course of antibiotics as well as topical medication
to put in his ear canals. The doctor also suggested changing
Tucker’s diet. He is finally looking good!
Read about a weekend with Tucker from Auntie Liz:
“So Louie, Sneakers and I spent the weekend with Tucker, and
let me tell you, we had some fun! Everyone got along great,
shared toys and all slept on my bed. They did leave me about a
foot of room on one side.
Tucker's skin is looking SO good! His fur on his face and
ears is coming in nice and soft, his eyes are clear and he looks
like he's on his way to being a whole new dog. He likes to
"talk" when he brings you his favorite rope toy, I think he's
saying, ‘Time to play!‘ The tail is still going a mile a minute
whenever he sees anyone coming.
He is full of life and energy, but he does calm down nicely.
His foster mom says he is very low maintenance. When she gets
home from work she will sit in a chair and he will bring her his
rope or his Kong to throw for him. He is great in the car and
is good with cats, he also is fine being an only dog or with
Tucker is ready to be adopted and looking forward to becoming
part of a family. Tucker is the best!!!”
Below is the latest update for Tucker, along with some new photos. You can actually see the sparkle in his eyes.
"Hello everyone! I am Tucker’s Aunt Liz. I had the pleasure of fostering Tucker for the first few days he came into rescue. Tucker was here to visit this weekend. When I saw Tucker walk through the door I almost couldn't believe it was him until I saw the tail going a mile a minute.
His coat is softer, his fur is filling out and the shine is beginning to return. All he wanted to do was give kisses and play. The veterinarian saw him again on Friday and compared him to a picture that she took two weeks prior. She determined he is well on the road to a full recovery. He will be neutered this week, but we haven't told him that yet.
I am now fostering a 15 year old lab, Nina, and Tucker was very good around her. I was afraid that he was going to knock her down in his excitement to play, but he was very calm with her. We had a family get-together on Saturday and he had a blast playing with everyone. I want to thank Jacqueline for saving him, thank Helen for bringing him to meet me, and thank my sister Rose for fostering and giving him such great care."
