This sweet boy is an approximately 7-month-old juvenile, small/medium-size hound-mix. Cute as a button, Tuck has a mostly white shorthair coat with markings of reddish brown appearing to be dusted with powdered sugar. His nature is gentle, friendly, calm and unassuming. Tuck loves to enjoy himself, finding fun playing with a younger, smaller puppy during this photo session. Tuck, a great size for a house dog, needs owner(s) willing to give good care, love, affection, attention, exercise in a fenced area or on a leash and some basic obedience training. Tuck will make a great family member and companion, in a good loving, forever home.
