Tuck is a neutered male Shi Tzu who belonged to a local woman. He lived with another dog named Lassie. His owner died after a long decline, and we took in both Tuck  and Lassie in on September 13, 2013.

Due to his owner’s extended illness, Tuck and his friend had been very neglected. He was terribly matted with mats right down to the skin, restricting joint movement. He was filthy with crusted feces and extremely overgrown nails. He needed to be shaved to remove most of the mats.

Tuck is a very people oriented dog. He loves to be around people, and would be very happy in a home situation. He is adaptable and gets along with most other dogs. He has a very sweet disposition.
