Additional Details:

Tucker is a very light fawn male with light colored tips on his fur that the folks at the track referred to as "champagne colored". He is a tall guy that raced at 76lbs. His birthday is March 25th and he is 2 years old. He is a Kiowa Mon Manny Pup so is half brother to some other dogs we have adopted out. Tucker is a super friendly, happy boy that has a tail that wags most of the time. He gets so excited to see everyone and bounces happily which can be a little overwhelming for toddlers and younger kids. He likes kids but is a little too enthusiastic to see kids sometimes so we think he should live with older kids only. We are working on teaching calmer greetings.  Tucker is very young at just two and greyhounds tend to mature slowly so he still has a lot of fun pup in him. He was very bad walking on leash when he arrived because he is strong, curious and wanted to check everything out. He is much better now but still needs some reminders when he gets excited. He has done great with the small dog in his foster home and others he has met so would probably do fine in a home with smaller pets. He also passed a couple of cat tests with no interest. Tucker is always happy and seems like he will make a fun pet for some lucky family. He is quiet in his crate and potties quickly on leash so may be OK in an apartment or townhouse. He is young and still pretty energetic so will need to go to a safely fenced area to run a couple times a week or he will need to go on walks or jogs to drain his energy if he doesn't have a fenced yard to play in. Tucker wants to please and readily offers behaviors trying to figure out what you want him to do. He already has learned lay down in his crate on command before being let out. He picked up on potty training right away. He really shines at meet and greets and goes up to each person that comes by giving kisses and leaning into them for love. If you want a happy, friendly, waggy, young boy this is the guy! RIght now his personality is more lab like than greyhound like. Such a sweet guy!!

Tucker crossed the bridge due to bone cancer as a very young dog within a year of being adopted.
