Hi my name is Ty! I am looking for my forever home! I’m a little unsure of new people so it takes me a little to warm up, but after a few days, I will warm up to you and be your best friend! I have a lot of energy and would love to have a fenced in yard to play and run around in. When the door is open, I like to try and run outside. I get along great with other dogs, but I LOVE to play. Did I say I love to play? I would do best with another dog who likes to play as much as I do, and a family that isn’t bothered by the constant action. My foster mom uses these special words, I think she is trying to tell me something but it takes me a really long time to figure it out. One of the words she uses a lot is “sit.” I like people of all ages but when I get excited I jump. I love walks and typically I walk fairly well, but lately I have been getting very excited when I see wildlife and other animals on my walks. If they would just let me get ONE squirrel... I don’t know what cats are but I’ve heard the people say I wouldn’t get along well with them. I love to relax and play rope and ball with my foster mom and chew on my toys, and my favorite, a cow hoof! She says I’m some sort of a hound dog- maybe a Mountain Cur/ Labrador mix, whatever that means. I was rescued from Chicago Animal Control and Care (CACC), an open admission shelter where the only way out for many of us is to have a rescue come get us. My foster mom thinks that I may have ran away around the July 4th 2016 holiday and ended up at CACC for almost two months and was never claimed by my previous owners. Currently I am living with another dog that is female while I am looking for my forever family. I have a microchip and I am neutered. I am filled with love and I will soon fill your heart.
