Ahh, Jimi Hendrix. The badass lefty who put out some rad music and made a name for himself in the rock and roll world! His canine namesake, our boy Hendrix is no different. He’s making a name for himself by stealing our hearts at CCR.
This guy isn’t a spring chicken, but a seasoned dog who knows himself is the best kind! And hello, he’s an active guy who can surely match the pep in your step.
This fellow may have gotten away with some bad behaviours in his previous home, so he needs a dedicated owner who shows him the lay of the land and will work on him. He’s a lover of nature, and so the ideal adopter would be an adventure type who plans on making their dog join them in all the outdoor fun!
He has some leash reactivity, but given his size he can be easily redirected.
Also, he’s a LOVER. He’ll cuddle you, and he’s definitely into the bed time snuggles. DO NOT TAKE THIS AWAY FROM HIM!
He may do best in a home without other pets as he’s an attention hog and picky with his canine companions.

Meet Tucker! The Gentle Giant. This precious Nervous Nelly is the most loving dog you could ask for. What’s the catch you ask? Well, this bundle of nerves likes to be his family’s shadow at all times as he’s still very anxious and fearful of abandonment. But with the right family, this could be a match made in heaven. This gorgeous angel needs to be in a home where at least one family member is around for most of the day. Tucker needs a calm and stable environment with a single family and he would definitely benefit from being the only furry family member in the house.
Tucker will be worth the effort and patience in the end as his favourite things to do are giving hugs, getting cuddles, he loves to put his head on your shoulder; what more could a dog owner ask for? You’ve got a friend for life with Tucker boy.
Although Tucker enjoyed playing in runs at the shelter with other dogs he’s very nervous when outside. While out for walks with his foster family he’s met a few four legged locals and at first was very apprehensive but now shows curiousity and gentleness when interacting with them. It will take time and effort to get this guy to feel comfortable outside and truly enjoy the outdoor walks and playtime.
If you don’t mind your shadow being a dog than look no further....take a chance on Tucker. He’s housebroken but not a fan of the crate, as he doesn’t like to be separated from his family; How cute is that?! He only barks occasionally when he hears city noises or voices in the street, but can be comforted and redirected easily. Tucker ‘ain’t’ no city slicker either; he’d prefer to live somewhere outside a busy urban environment.
This masterpiece is a work in progress and if you’re up for the challenge we have no doubt Tucker will be a one of kind friend and companion for life. And who could resist that face? If you can’t please contact email@example.com or fill out an application atcovetedcanines.org/application
