Tucker, a 2 year old male Kerry mix fostered in Georgia
Rescue Coordinator: George Hanna
Meet Tucker, a kerry mix (and a very, very cute one, as you will be able to see from pictures soon to be posted -- he looks like a kerry but his tail is undocked and his tail looks a little retriever-ish) rescued from a high-volume, high-kill shelter in Mississippi, thanks to the wonderful dedication of a shelter worker who contacted the Foundation. Tucker is one or two years old, very playful, very loving, very sweet. He completely stole the shelter volunteer's heart, such that she was willing to make an extra effort for this one out of 250 dogs. Tucker is undergoing treatment for heartworm and will be neutered, and is getting up to date on all his vaccinations. Tucker came in to the shelter with hair six to eight inches long all over his body, and may have been living on the streets, so may not be housebroken -- but as smart and eager to please as he is, that should take very little time. Tucker may have some fur mixed in with his kerry hair, so may not be suitable for someone who has allergies to non-kerry breeds.
