Tucker and Handler Susan

Tucker and Handler Susan

Regional Area: Central

Breed: Golden Retriever

Tucker is a happy golden with an infectious smile. With his big cheesy grin and cool good looks, Tucker charms everyone he meets during therapy visits, seniors at assisted living facilities and students at schools and colleges.

Tucker is excited to go wherever people make a fuss over him. He visited with students at a local law school to help take some stress off them before their exams. Even though these students were exhausted from nonstop studying, their faces immediately lit up when they saw Tucker. They happily took a break to give Tucker the love that he just cannot get enough of and he was quick to reciprocate. The stress relief these Hearts of Gold pups provide truly helps students ace their exams.

At home, Tucker continues the fun, especially enjoying the pool. He loves to hang out on the top step to cool off or even share a float with his mom. Tucker is always ready for a belly rub.; he will lie in wait for his mom, belly in the air, ready for more pets!

Tucker is anxious to participate in more therapy visits in the future. He is working on his mom to lighten up her work schedule so he can continue to spread his sunshine to others!
