Medical Notes When Tucker came into hart's care he presented with some stiffness and soreness in his backend. He was diagnosed by the vet as having some arthritis. He is now being treated with cartrophen injections which is a joint supplement to help with his stiff and sore joints. Long term, it would be best if Tucker continues these injections by his adoptive parents to support his joint comfort. Tucker does not let his arthritis get in his way when he plays and runs laps in his fosters back yard. He is always up for a game of tug of war or fetch! Tucker is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is neutered and microchipped.

About Me:  Are you looking for a distinguished older gent?  Calm, patient, loving?  A dog that is over his puppy/teenage phases of acting out, chewing up your stuff and disobeying you?  Well I'm that guy!  I may be older but that also means I'm wiser....*wink*.  Don't let my age fool you though, I still have the energy to run a few laps around the yard and play a good game of fetch!  I'm wonderful with kids, love 'em, and I don't mind cats either.  I'm not a fan of other dogs though, when I see them I bark and growl at them to go away.  What does the world need another dog for when its got me anyway?  My foster home says I've made some progress with this and with continued training they think I'll be able to overcome my feelings towards other dogs but it will take some commitment.  I'm pretty calm in the house and like to laze around and watch tv with you but if you had a job for me to do, I think I'd probably like that too.  I'm easy going either way.  I think with my love and loyalty (maybe a few slobbery kisses) I'd make a good therapy dog or maybe a protector of some livestock?  As mentioned above, I do have a bit of arthritis in my back end, but an injection every six weeks takes care of that for me and I don't mind you giving it to me.  It's easy peasey.  So what do you think?  Are you looking for me?
