Tucker is a sweet wheatie. His biggest issue is separation anxiety. He would never hurt a person, but when his owners go away he tends to eat things he shouldn't. He does it sometimes when they are home as well. He has eaten carpets, drapes, whicker baskets, etc. He has had to have multiple major surgeries because of this and it costs his owners immense amounts of money. The vet says if he needs surgery again to remove carpet etc from his stomach and intestines he will likely not make it through because he has had his entire abdomen cut open so many times. They are sweet dogs but not perfect and behavioral issues like his can be extremely costly. They also have an independent terrier mindset which is not for everyone.
