Hi, I'm Tucker....a wonderful 10 year old, 40 lb. male Beagle.
Are you looking for an older gentleman, with spunk, who loves everyone and everything? My tail?...it almost never stops wagging.

I'm a great guy if I do say so myself. I like humans of all ages, cats and dogs. I've even seen deer at my foster home. I did greet them with a hearty bark. I'm a calm guy at home, who enjoys being a couch, er chair potato. If you are relaxing, so am I. TV--count me in! I also love soft squeaky toys ..so you might find me walking around with one of those in my mouth, laying with one in my mouth or near by, or carefully pulling the squeaky out of a new one. If there is a toy available, it will be mine. I like having several to choose from.

I love going for a walk, short or long, it doesn't matter. I love being out and using my nose to see who has been there before me. I'm good on leash. If a particularly good scent catches my attention, I may be a little slower to leave that spot. I will sometimes greet another dog with a bark, but usually I just need a sniff. Recently I went snow swimming. That's where I'm up to my neck in snow....I loved it!

I've learned to sit on command, and sit before my breakfast and dinner are provided. I can also sit for treats. I'm learning to shake, but I don't have that mastered yet. I love a backyard. I like to go outside via the doggie door. I learned how to use that on my first day. I might take my toy out and bury it, or I'll just walk around, or take up a nice spot and lay down.

I'm glad that I have another dog at home, because I used to live with one. This guy is calm, and that is good for me. I'd like to be in a home where there is another dog that I can be with. At my foster home, the resident dog and I enjoy barking at the garbage men and the mailman. This is normal, right? And my other excitement is when my foster parents come home. I like to give them a hearty greeting. I don't like to get too carried away, or they'd think I really like it there. I do, but I want to find my new forever home. Could that be with you?
