They call Tucker a repeat offender because he's been at TAS several times now. In the past, his owners always came by to pick him up. This time, it seems Tucker's owners are a no show - which, in the long run, might be a good thing for Tucker because what kind of owners let their dog run away over and over again. It's like they're living in the Seventies or something.
In the short term, however, while Tucker is a very affectionate dog, he's not doing very well in the shelter environment. His anxiety level is rising and now I see him shivering in his kennel. I take him out and after a few minutes of ear rubs and chest rubs, his shaking settles down; his glance is still unsure because he knows he has to go back into his kennel. He's not up for adoption yet but when he is, hopefully someone will take him home before the environment stresses him out any further.
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter.
