Tuck is a beautiful, 4 yr old Weim boy needing a special adopter. He originally came from a shelter in CO. Tuck is a loveable, active, perfectly mannered boy- an AMAZING hiking companion with excellent trail manners, decent on leash and loves to chill on the couch. He can go many many miles, or just chill if the day is a quiet one. He adores other dogs, adores people he knows, house trained, crate trained and impeccable off leash recall. He has perfect house manners and can manage normal working hours at home chilling- he won't be naughty, just super calm at home! He is also amazing at doggy day care- the staff raves about how well he does.
Tuck does have a couple of quirks and will try and protect his human if they don't tell him not to, and he really doesn't love having things taken away from him. He is VERY food motivated and has learned well to 'trade' for high value items and is easily managed through this. He has to be introduced to new people gently as he can be frightened easily. Generally he warms up within a few moments, with a kind word or treat. His foster has had no issues with any of this behavior, and even his temp foster (when normal foster travels) raves he is a perfect gent at home. What is their secret? They keep him well exercised and if they do go to a public space we are careful about where and how he is managed and who says hello. On the trails he is so good and comes and sits by his foster every time she calls. So what is Tuck's perfect home? A dog savvy person who knows how to 'own their space' and probably another dog or 2 that regularly tell Tuck they are in charge :). He also would do best in a more active home- though he does love his couch!! Please remember before you think of applying- Tuck has these little quirks that have to be managed for life- while this can be reduced to almost nothing, as is shown in his foster home- it is a life time commitment.
