About Tux:

Tux is a medium-sized, male Heading Dog, aged 1 years old.



Tux is a young heading dog who didn’t make the cut having a career as a working dog and is now with me to find a loving home.

Tux has a little ptsd from living as a farm dog and the stronger treatment, causing him to panic if he feels trapped, he needs a caring and understanding home that can build his confidence and a love for life.

Tux is currently living with a variety of small and larger dogs and finds comfort and security having a K9 friend close by. A home with a calm friendly dog will do wonders for Tux’s confidence and help him relax.

Tux has been in the house a few times since arriving a week ago and is still finding it quite a lot to take in, but of course with another dog pal he relaxes quickly.

Tux does love a pat and I know in the future will be a big cuddle bug, he just needs to know people won’t hurt him.

A bit about TUX’s personality:

Tux is very shut down right now sadly. He seems like underneath all his fear he is just a big sook waiting for a cuddle and a kind home.
