Tucker is a beautiful Treeing Walker Coonhound, a breed that closely resembles the American Foxhound. He is a happy, active and very social 1-year-old. Tucker will need a home with an active family that will provide him with lots of playtime. His ideal home would have a large fenced yard, lots of toys and no cats.
