Plott Hound • Medium
Tuck is a stunning 2 year old Plott hound weighing about 45 lbs. Although he is a little shy at first, Tuck is the sweetest boy once he feels comfortable around you. He just needs a little time to realize that you are going to be his best friend and then he will follow you everywhere you go! He loves being hugged and getting scratches on his back, basically he loves being loved. Tuck is curious when he is inside and loves to sniff around. He is mostly calm in the house but will get bursts of energy and want to play with you and his toys. He loves being outside and running in the backyard for his ball or alligator toy. Being active is definitely important for this cute guy! When people or other dogs pass by the yard Tuck does not bark at them but likes to watch them walk by as he is curious about them. He is very food motivated and learned how to sit on command in just one morning, and now he can’t stop doing it for treats! If you need to get work done or leave the house, Tuck will simply lay in his bed and rest without any issues if you give him a space of his own to relax in. Tuck sleeps through the night in his bed without a peep. On walks, Tuck needs to work on his leash manners as he is distracted by the noises around him and wants to walk ahead of you, though other dogs passing by is not an issue. Tuck is very playful but needs someone to teach him how to be a little bit more gentle when playing because he gets so excited while having fun. To my pleasant surprise, Tuck is mostly house-trained and only had one accident since being fostered but otherwise knows to do his business outside as long as he is taken out regularly. If you are looking for a sweet, playful, silly companion and are willing to work with him on his overall manners, then Tuck is your guy!

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals. Please note that our pets come from shelters, so we CANNOT guarantee age, breed, mix of breeds, or adult size.
For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home.
An application does not obligate you to adopt, and can be transferred to any pet. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the pet you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call within 7-10 days. If you would like to transfer your application to a different pet, please submit an adoption application transfer request. You will need the application number and email address from your original application.
We are a foster-based rescue and do not have a shelter location where pets can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a pet in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.
Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
