Students at the Bennett Venture Academy charter school in Toledo get a special treat when they display good behavior in class: time with Tucker.

Tucker is a rescued pooch belonging to Dawn Taylor, the school's social worker. Mrs. Taylor brings in Tucker on Fridays so that students can spend time with him and take him for short walks on school grounds.
