Tucker's first day

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 12 July 2013 | 8 Comments


I just wanted to let you all know how Tucker is settling in.


When we saw Tucker at the Shelter he won our hearts with his beady brown eyes and his cute little discoloured red nose, and so many other beautiful features. He was adopted on Thursday 4th of July. He was a little anxious during the car ride on the way home, and was very tired in the evening but still soldiered on to get to know us!

Yesterday was his proper first day at home and he has settle in nicely. He has been sleeping, eating, and toileting well, and loves his new bed and toys! He likes to roll around and get plenty of belly rubs. He has only barked once whilst looking out the window seeing a leaf fall on to the ground. He is a true sweetheart.

He is an extremely loving boy, he jumps to say hello and tries to lick your face when he is excited. He has some separation anxiety, we are trying to leave him on his own for 5 minutes, then gradually increase the time away from us so that he learns that we will always be back. Lots of positive reinforcement with treats!!


We have decided to get a trainer to help us better structure his routine and help us with some training, and also help Tucker with his separation anxiety. I have a lot of faith in Tucker and I am sure that after a couple of weeks he will be nicely settled and less anxious in his new home. :)

I have attached some photos of Tucker on his first proper day at his new home (Taken on Friday 5/07).

I am very grateful for all the wonderful people and the effort that all of you at Shenton Park do to rehome dogs in need of a much deserved loving new start!

Many thanks,

  • Tucker was loved at the refuge. It is wonderful that he has found you who are so loving and accepting of him.
