Came across a white and red pem in a shelter near us. We took Lance to go meet Tucker this afternoon and the meeting seemed to go ok. Lance and Tucker both didnt pay much attention to each other!!!!
They did sniff some, although Tucker seemed a bit shy, but he just would back away, didnt make any noises or do anything other than back away. The volunteers at the shelter seemed to think it went well.
He was temperment tested and passed. My daughter and I met with him in a room at the shelter, which unfortunately was the kitchen, you know what was on Tuckers mind...food, lol. He did seem happy to see us when we called him to us and wanted to give lots of kisses. :)
He was dropped off in the shelter runs by someone and just left :( Apparently he had male issues and it wouldn't go down, so they had to take him to the vet and got it taken care of, which they did, they said he was fine now. Poor boy, they think maybe he was used for breeding :( He has some scars on his face around his eyes...at first I thought it was just black fur, but looking closer looks like scars. They said possible flea bite scars or maybe from breeding gone bad??
One of the volunteers tried adopting him but her other dog did not like Tucker at all :( Im hoping the scars on his face isn't from an attack, and now hes scared of other dogs. You think they would be honest about that. We definately would have to have Tucker come to the house to see how the meeting goes here. I know it will take some time for adjustments, I just hope that they are suited for each other.
Hopefully Tucker is more submissive than Lance is.
We are going back tonight with the whole family since my daughter and hubby couldnt join us this afternoon. Any thoughts or feedback would be great to hear. I just feel so bad for Tucker. I want this to go as smoothly as possible, and seeing Im new to having two dogs, one being a rescue I would appreciate advice.
