Pup of the Month: Tux
Tux came into the shelter with his canine brother Loner, who wouldn’t be a loner for long as he was adopted quickly. This leaves nine-year old Tux alone at the shelter, waiting for his lucky break. Let's find this gentle pup his match!
Not much is known about Tux's background, but we believe that he may have gone all of his life without learning how to properly walk on a leash. However, he's got a major pep in his step and looks forward to being shown the ropes! Tux gets quite excited to go outside, but can be easily distracted. He may lead you on a bit of an adventure, but he'll be smiling the whole way.
This furry boy may not be a professional at walking on the leash, but he knows how to respond to basic commands such as "sit" and "down." Just look at the photo above for proof - what an angel! Tux can be shy at first, but once he warms up to you, he's truly going to love you forever. He's goofy, happy, and absolutely loves human interaction. Tux is a candidate to go into a home with other dogs, and/or with children ages 12 and up!
PUPDATE: As of 4/4, Tux found a loving home! Congratulations to Tux and his new family!
