Please read Tucker's requirements in a forever home below and only inquire/apply if you fit that criteria. Tucker, an absolutely adorable and large 2 year old, 60 lb., Border Collie/Newfie mix is simply an extraordinary guy! He has a personality that makes you laugh, is silly and just delicious. He loves his people, listens well, and is always happy to greet or be with them. This sweetheart loves tossing around and catching his toys and of late, has been learning to play fetch. Likewise, Tucker gets along well with the other multiple dogs in his foster home. He plays with his canine friends endlessly, running around the large yard chasing or being chased, (with big and little dogs alike) and definitely has that high Border Collie energy. Tucker is gorgeous with his very Newfie body and build; soft and fluffy and ready to cuddle. However, he does not have the Newfie dopiness, so he will be ready for quiet time only if he has had his exercise and stimulation throughout the day; in fact, for him, being with another playful dog is a must because humans just can't do the play like a dog buddy; (watching him with his canine friends is truly a delight). While he is playful with all dogs, his adoptive home does need one other mid-large sized dog and a large, fenced yard. Tucker is house trained, knows basic commands, walks well on the leash, and sleeps through the night. He excitedly hops into bed with his foster parents in the morning for some kisses, before reminding them to get up for playtime. He has had successful surgery for shoulder OCD and has hip dysplasia, though neither seems to stop him from zooming around. Under the guidance of our vet, his foster home manages this well with several daily supplements and NSAIDs as needed for flare-ups/particularly painful days. This will need to be continued for life, but is well worth the minimal effort on your part. Tucker has been waiting a long time to be adopted and deserves a home of his own with people who will care for him for sure. If you are someone who is forgetful about things like this, then he is definitely not the guy for you. . Please note: This sweetheart is very large; in his sometimes rambunctious goofiness and happy enthusiasm, he can unintentionally knock you over, so he is not suitable for either the young or the elderly nor apartments or small homes/yards. For this guy, an adoptive home must have a large fenced yard. Please do not inquire/apply if you do not fit this criteria. All in all, this sweetheart brings joy wherever he goes and he is so eager to find his match. Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a dog from A New Chance Animal Rescue (https://anewchancear.org). We are a 501c3, tax deductible organization. ANCAR is a foster-based rescue, and we adopt within a 90 mile radius of Bedford Hills, NY. You will find the adoption application here: (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-application/). All fields on the application must be completed. Please read about the adoption process (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-process/) so you'll know what to expect when you submit. Our dogs are in foster care and we do NOT have a shelter or boarding facility. AN APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED IN FULL AND APPROVED BEFORE A DOG CAN BE MET. This is a firm policy. Our busy volunteers are not able to respond to questions about the dog or dog meeting requests in the absence of an application. We know these dogs very well because they are in foster care. Please read the profiles of the dog(s) you are interested in prior to submitting an application. If there are specific requirements stated (ie: Fenced Yard or Canine Friend Required) these are included because they are vital to the happiness, health, safety and adoption success of that dog. We are only able to save as many dogs as we have foster homes (https://anewchancear.org/foster/faqs/) and resources for. We provide medical care including vaccinations, testing, deworming, spaying/neutering and microchipping before transporting our dogs. We provide all supplies, preventatives and any follow up vet care necessary while they are in foster care. These costs are high and the number of lives we can save is entirely dependent upon donations from people like you. We do not receive funding from private foundations or government sources. If you can find room in your heart to help us, with any amount, we are truly grateful (https://anewchancear.org/help/donate/). We are a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax-deductible. It is only through the kindness of supporters like you that we are 'changing lives...one tail at a time' by providing our dogs with 'A New Chance.' (https://anewchancear.org) Thanks so much.
