About Tucker

Adoption Fee: $50.00
American Staffordshire Terrier mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Name: Tucker Age: 4.5 years Breed: American Staffordshire Mix Location: Buckeye Vaccinated: Yes Neutered: Yes House Trained: Yes Leash trained: He walks nicely (doesn't pull) but will try to go after cars that pass. I say 'eh, eh' as soon as he sees the car, and he completely stops and continues walking. Good with cats and other dogs, both genders Nervous around kids No food nor toy aggression Crate Trained: Not formally, but he will go in there voluntarily to sleep, and I rarely have trouble getting him to go into it when needed. He never whines nor barks from his crate. Tucker loves cuddling next to his people, snuggling with other friendly dogs, milk bones, chicken, and peanut butter. We have a plastic snuffle mat, licky mat, and kongs - all of which he enjoys. He only chews on dog toys. He doesn't dig, jump, and rarely barks. He sleeps quietly through the night. He has a calm demeanor, but gets giddy over walks, car rides, and food. We have a crate, crate cover, toys, collar, leash, and a crate bed that he can take with him if needed. Prior to our adoption, Tucker loved all the adults in his foster home. He was around 6 other dogs, male and female, and 3 cats. He got along well with all of them there. He also gets along beautifully with my other dog and cat. In the shelter, he was loved by staff and all who interacted with him. We dearly love Tucker, but are looking to rehome him because is anxious around our two kids (7 and 12.) He hasn't bit nor hurt them, but is clearly uncomfortable around them, even though they are kind and gentle. He somewhat enjoys their presence, but we still get a clearly nervous vibe from that we can't ignore. He doesn't like loud noises and kids, of course, add noise to the home. I think it's just a lot of action for him. He had been around kids through the shelter, but not around them in a home setting. We met with a trainer and his vet, and they feel a change would be beneficial for him. He is a wonderful boy, and we are very sad to be going this route, but truly feel it's what's best for him. We know the right people are out there. He has so much to offer and would do great in a quieter home. He'd love to have at least one other friendly dog to cuddle with but would also do well solo. We're hoping to find him the right place as soon as possible.
