Adoption Fee: $325
Border Collie mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Tucker, the True Hearted! Meet Our Tucker, the handsome 2 year old, 50 pound black tri color Border Collie mix with a heart to treasure. Tucker is EXACTLY what a Border boy should be-intelligent, tenacious, loyal, loving, and spirited! He will fulfill the heart of Someone who absolutely prizes all that a Border Collie has to offer and will eagerly give a young 'still becoming' the time and attention he needs. This bright light is very much a 'You're the center of my world' dog who is devoted to his Person. If you are looking for a shadow dog, Tucker is your reward.Ľ└%BDĽ└%BD%BD%A0 He loves the idea of being His Person's one and only four-legged furry. In fact, should his One and Only''s focus stray away, the persistent pooch will vocalize his dissatisfaction. One-on-one time is Tucker's sweet spot! Tucker has little patience for other canines. He doesn't understand them and has jumped another dog. Tucker must be the only critter in his domain. Tucker has a heart ready to love. Patience, time and a little goody grub are all it takes to win it. In truest Border Collie bold and bouncy best Tucker is a perfect candidate for fun agility or at home dog sports. Long walks and short hikes in the company of His Favorite Person are his dream come true. Since he's treat motivated, puzzle games and goody treasure hunts are winning pastimes. Let the games begin! Young, and from a previous home unprepared for the typical breed intelligence and needs, Tucker's still developing into all he can be. He does well in the basics. Tucker knows when to go out-of course, like all young fellas, he will need time to learn new routines in his home-sweet-home. Tucker does well in his crate. The lad enjoys daily treks and is easy to walk! Since he is reactive to other canines, a 'Gentle Leader' type head collar is just Tucker's style. Unsurprisingly, dog parks are not. No doubt this bright boy can be taught to go on car rides while tethered. This eager-to-go pup has a little trouble with 'come', though he will...eventually-a tasty tidbit helps here too. Tucker's going to be the heart of Someone's home who wants an independent, intelligent, 'you and me' buddy or a 'life is too short not to live' dog. His Forever Folks are either active herding dog experienced, or have purposely researched and understand all that comes with a Border Collie. They will be excited to broaden his horizons in social, mental, and physical engagement and training and willing to take all the time it needs. Tucker's looking to be the center in an adults only or kids 13 and up home. Tucker is not fond of cats, and MUST be the one and only canine. The smart and spirited canine has shown that he can be dog reactive (again, dog parks are not his thing) and can climb a fence when motivated.Ľ└%BDĽ└%BD%BD%A0 Therefore, a yard with 5' or higher fence is also a Must Have for Tucker, and his Person should be ready to monitor him outside. He won't do well in most multifamily residential settings (for example, apartments). It is essential that all introductions to new people and places be slow and monitored. Tucker trots over to add: 'Dear Adopter- I am eager to star in a Home of my Own. If you are looking for a best friend to adventure Life with, we're meant to be!' Is Tucker meant to be your dog star?
