Tyson #16-516. Arrived 9/24/2016 at 3 years old.
Tyson was surrendered to us by his temporary caretaker after a family member left him and didn't come back. Tyson is a looker, with his cute speckled nose. Tyson is strong when being walked on leash and will benefit by a special pulling harness and training used with positive reinforcement to keep him at the side of his walker. Tyson did come in with a female dog, but does not need to be adopted with her. He has shown to be protective of her and a meet & greet with another dog would be a necessity. Tyson is a sweet boy, he does show some tendencies to worry about toys when they are thrown, he still needs to be reassured that he is a good boy. Tyson was in a home where kids ages 4 to 18 were around, his behavior being described as friendly, playful, and tolerant. Tyson was kept as an outside dog, with a doghouse, and he will need adjustment to becoming an indoor dog. Tyson knows sit, down, come, and stay. Tyson has shown sensitivity to fireworks, and he did display his boredom by trying to dig out of the yard.
