Tuuka 12/11

Meet Tuuka, a 2-year old Pit Bull Mix. Tuuka is an energetic fellow who loves getting lots of time to play. Fetch, tug ‘o war, walks, runs, he enjoys them all. He can be a little rough when he plays, but that’s just his style. Tuuka would be happy to share a new home with some other dogs, dog savvy cats, and older children who can handle him. Tuuka is an intelligent dog who already knows how to “sit,” “lay down,” and even “shake.” He would love to learn more commands with his new family. If you’re been looking for an energetic, exciting companion, then stop on by the shelter today to meet Tuuka.

The Animal Welfare Society is fortunate to have volunteers who take adoptable dogs through the obedience classes.  They also spend quality time, playing with, walking, and running the dogs. Here’s what some volunteers had to say about Tuuka:

“I have spend a lot of time the last two weeks working with and getting to know Tuuka.  He was a little shy and apprehensive at first, but each time I see him he seems to be more comfortable and much more trusting.  Someone in the past apparently cared for and respected him a lot.  He is well fed (just a little pudgy), very intelligent and knows the sit, shake, and down commands.  As a matter of fact, he is a switch hitter when it comes to shaking hands.  He is so fast that whichever hand is closest to you rests in yours by the time you finish the command.  Tuuka really enjoys a long walk in the woods and likes to socialize afterwards to show his gratitude.  He is a very handsome fella and a real softy at heart.  Spending time with him is fun and rewarding.” Malte
