Hi, my name is Tyson and I am a Chiweenie (Chihuahua / Dachshund). My age is about 10 months and I had a rough start. Someone loved me and a few other puppies but then left us in an alley. I was the oldest and become the protector of the other puppies. I did my best to keep them safe, but unfortunately, one of the other puppies was attacked by a Bobcat. The good news is that the people at CRT rescued all of us and took my injured friend to the vet and fixed him up. He is fine now.
I am looking for my forever home. My personality is a bit shy at first and I need to warm up. If you give me some space and a few treats, I will be your best friend. When new people come over, I will bark a bit, but eventually I come around and give great kisses. The type of home that would be best is one without too much going on in the house. Perhaps a couple without children or a single person would be nice. I do love my foster brothers and sister and would like a friend to play with in my forever home.
I currently weigh about 7 pounds and my foster Mom says that is perfect. I hope to find a forever home soon.
This is a perfect little guy and the family that adopts him will be so lucky! Could that family be yours?
Tyson is neutered, micro chipped, up-to-date on shots, HW negative. and on heartworm prevention. He is ready to join a loving family - could that family be yours?
