Name: Tucker

Age: 1 to 2 years old

Breed: Pit bull terrier mix

Size: 32 pounds

Background: Tucker was found as a stray on the streets of South Philadelphia.

Running style: Tucker is fun and enthusiastic! You might call him a “pocket pittie,” but we think he’s more of a smiley, blocky-headed Rocky runner. He’s got a lot of fire and drive for a smaller-side-of-medium guy, but he rests easily once his work is done. Tucker can certainly go it alone but would clearly rather help you train for your next ultra or share your winter trail-running adventures. He’ll keep you warm during your post-training naps as well.
