Feature Shar Pei

Feature SharPei - Tucker
Sponsor me Tucker

I‘m Tucker, a sweet male Pei rescued from a Virginia shelter.  

I am very mellow and love to give kisses. I would do great with a family that has kids, and I do well with other dogs. I lived with a little boy who I adored and am now living with other dogs. Foster Mommy says that I am absolutely lovely and any family would be lucky to have me!

If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application, and ask for Tucker!

Please visit the adoption page to read more about me, see more pictures, and check out my video!

Potential adopters should fill out an Online Adoption Application.  Alternatively, you can download, fill out, and submit an application.  More Info
