Tucker's foster parents like calling him Vincent Van Gogh because he's missing the top of his left ear. And in his way, he is an artist and special pup. With his short legs and wiggling little tail, he wins everyone over when he meets them, and is even friendly to strangers he sees on his walks. Just check out that smile - it's infectious!

This polite, friendly boy always loves being where people are, enjoying lots of good cuddles and ear scratches from them. He likes going for his slow leash walks, never tugging on his leash, and he loves stopping to sniff the grass. At home, he's having fun playing and wrestling with his doggie housemate. He's a relaxed boy who's happy to be a couch potato, and loves getting treats. He's also a house-trained boy who's learning to use the dog door. And he's a chill, easygoing boy who does well snoozing on his bed when he's home alone.

Tucker is a gentle, calm boy who would be a good fit for any home, including one with other dogs and kids. Come meet him, he'll hope you'll scratch that artist's ear.
