Tukee

Posted on 16 November 2011 by admin

Update 2/10/13 – Tukee passed away in 1/13.  He was loved very much and cared for by his foster dad, Dan.

***UPDATE Tukee is now an SLSR permanent foster, and loves living with his foster dad, Dan***

Tukee (Too-key), around 10 years old,  is a very friendly dog and hasnt met a person he didn’t like. He is well behaved on walks, not even trying to chase after the squirrels no matter how much they taunt him.

Tukee loves to cuddle, often lying next to his foster parent for hours. Tiny puppies may not be a good idea, but only because he is so playful he might step on them. He is not aggressive, even when taking a chew toy away from him.

His favorite snacks are tissues and paper so bathroom doors may need to remain closed. He is also a counter surfer..if its within reach, hell eat it. :o )

Tukee is a very lively, energetic and loving Sammie and will make a wonderful companion for a family that is active and likes to walk. Tukee must have a home with a solid privacy fence at least 6 high. He is an expert escape artist and can climb or dig under a chain link fence or a similar type.

Tukee is up to date on all of his vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered and is micro chipped.

    Hello, I was just curious as to how old he is and why he was put up for adoption?

    Tukee is around 10 years old. He and his sibling were relinquished by the owners due to their own circumstances (not dog related). Nanuq is doing great in his forever home and we hope to match Tukee with his forever family soon :)

    He’s really cute. I think I remember older photos of him — he was really trimmed down? Perhaps I’m confusing him with another?

    I can’t take on a dog right now (my living situation isn’t ideal for a dog to be happy), but I wish this guy the best. He looks very happy here.
