Rescue dog supports Scotland in Euro 2020 bid and hopes to score big with new home

Dogs Trust West Calder have got their fingers and paws crossed for Scotland in the EUFA Euro 2020 Championship. One dog, Border Collie Tucker, who loves playing with footballs, is hoping the team there will put their best foot forward to find him a loving new home.  

Tucker, aged one, became a resident through no fault of his own. He is an extremely clever boy who has shown incredible promise as a goalkeeper and could give his human counterparts a run for their money.  

Kim McNeill, Assistant Manager at Dogs Trust West Calder, said:  

“Tucker is a typical Collie and loves being kept mentally and physically stimulated. There is nothing he enjoys more than being outside playing with his favourite toys, which usually includes a football.   

“He is such a charming and handsome lad with lots of ‘pawtential’, who would fit into the right home very quickly. He is more than happy to travel in the car to go on exciting journeys where he will get to experience lots of new sight and smells; Tucker loves a fuss being made over him too and will always join you on the couch for belly rubs.  

“The perfect owner for Tucker would be someone with previous collie experience and any children in the family home should be over the age of 12. He enjoys learning and being on the move, so a family that will continue his training and provide a secure garden for him to potter around in, would be ideal.”
