LebTown features a different Lebanon County pet each Friday to help us enter the weekend with the best vibes possible.

This week, meet Tucker!


Tucker’s people are Dominique Townes and her fiancé, Ryan Metsger, of North Lebanon Township. This cheerful boy is 6 years old, Dominique says. He’s a 75-pound German shepherd/boxer mix “that thinks he is a lap dog.”

“He is all bark, no bite,” she says. “Super friendly and loves everyone.”

He also loves a good pup cup, or “Puppuccino,” at Starbucks, she adds, as well as a visit to the local PetSmart to browse the toy department.

“Tucker loves being outside rain or shine,” Dominique says. “His favorite toy is his Chuck It ball, which we have on subscription with Amazon because he goes through them like crazy!”

Dominique recommended Tucker as LebTown’s Pet of the Week “because he is exceptionally handsome, listens to his mom and dad and is very sweet and caring towards others.” Sounds like a good reason to us!

Good boy, Tucker!
