Tucker and Handler Jean

Tucker and Handler Jean

Regional Area: North Central

Breed: Doodle

Paws-itively the most people-oriented pup around, Goldendoodle Tucker thrives on the attention and affection of every person he meets.

This active team has visited Assisted Living facilities and hospitals, independent seniors and dementia patients, spreading sunshine to one and all with his sweetness and gentleness. For Jean, meeting so many wonderful people, seeing them smile and their faces light up at the sight of Tucker is extremely rewarding. As for Tucker, he’s in pure doggy bliss, and has had as many as three people petting him at the same time.

Athletic and agile, Tucker likes running, playing, swimming, and visiting the dog park where he meets all of his friends. Then, while the other dogs are running in circles, he approaches each person there, leans up against them and allows them to pet him.

Always adventurous and always a good sport, he not only enjoys taking rides in the car or on the golf cart, but dressing up, proudly marching in the St. Patrick’s Day and Mardi Gras parades.

As for this affable team’s future plans: visiting more people, enjoying their visits, and meeting more dogs.
