Tucker/Redington Beach

Tucker/Redington Beach

We’d like you to meet the sweetest, most loving, adorable and handsome lil’ fella Tucker! He’s an amazing 7 1/2 year old Shih tzu who weighs in at a mere 8lbs.!

Shortly after arriving to Rescue, he went to see our Veterinarian which all of our intakes do, and it was discovered that this little sweetheart had a broken jaw! While the cause of the break is unknown, our Vet said he is continuing to heal and is doing quite well..Phew! Tucker is also receiving supplements for his joints and mobility, because, you know how it is, as we get a little older everything starts to hurt, right? LOL…Tucker is also vision impaired, and will need to be kept in a safe environment at his new home, but once he’s familiar with his surroundings, he gets along fairly well. He loves “his” humans, and will follow them around by sound, and has an unbelievable sense of smell, especially when the ” human” is preparing his meals! Due to the issue with his jaw, little Tucker will need to stay on soft canned food for quite some time not only for his poor jaw, but because he doesn’t have that many teeth left either! Poor little Tucker, he is such a trooper!

This great boy has had it tough, but he’s SO ready to find his “fur” ever family. The ideal situation for him would be a quiet adult only home with no stairs and please, no kitties either. He gets along with the other pups in his foster home, but does not like it if any of them get a little “rambunctious”, as that makes him nervous, so if you have a very calm doggie who likes to chill just like Tucker, a meet and greet will be required to make sure it’ll be a good fit. Tucker is a very affectionate, cuddly boy who loves going outside, laying in the grass enjoying our beautiful Florida weather. He must be accompanied outside at all times due to his vision issues. He is working on his housebreaking skills, he’s not quite there yet, so a regular “potty” break routine is best. So, what do you think? Might Tucker be the guy for you? He sure hopes so! Please fill out an adoption application atwww.viprescue.org and if approved, his foster family will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. Tucker is neutered, microchipped current with vaccines and monthly heartworm/flea prevention.
