Let's play! My name is Tuckett, and I'm a feisty, fun-loving, smart young pup who would thrive with an active family that will help me work my brain, too, by signing me up for training so I can learn about the big, wide world around me. I am a silly clown who enjoys play, play, playing - either outside in the yard with my doggie friends (I would prefer a home with a fenced yard) or with all the toys I can get my little paws on. I'm a bit mischievous, too, and am learning what items around the house are toys; if you discover something is missing, you can probably find it in my toy pile!

I get along great with other dogs and would love a playful canine companion who will help me burn my energy and also show me the ropes of my new life. I'm kid friendly, too, though I would do best with older children for now until I grow out of my puppy antics such as mouthiness and jumping. As a puppy, I still have much to learn and need continued help learning potty training; I would prefer someone who is home frequently to let me outside to do my business while I master how to hold it for longer lengths of time. I'm crate trained, know how to walk on a leash for our fun adventures, and even know sit already! I am eager to continue learning, and even think it would be fun to take agility classes once I graduate from basic manners class. I'm a goofy energizer bunny who will always keep you laughing and moving; if you are looking for a best furry friend that will also be your No. 1 adventure buddy, I think I am the dude for you!


Puppies are cute, cuddly and looking for a family to call their own. They need an owner who is home often, and willing to help with training, socializing and housebreaking. They need to be let out often so they can learn to go potty outside. Training is required, and we will need to see proof from adopters that puppies have been signed up for classes. They need an owner to be committed to them forever, and in return they will reward you with a lifetime of cuddles, kisses and love. Sound like a commitment you're ready to make? Please fill out an adoption application and Fetching Tails Foundation will be in touch soon!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
