Take a look at Tyson! He's a super cute 6 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback/Shepherd mix. Tyson was adopted from a rescue in Texas. His family abandoned him. His new owners moved to Ohio with him, but are currently living with family and cannot keep him. This handsome boy is a lover! He lived with another dog and likes other dogs, but needs to be the dominant one. Tyson isn't that into toys but likes ropes to chew. He likes a long walk or a car ride. He is a mellow guy except when it comes to cats. NO CATS!! Tyson is house trained and has manners in the home too. Tyson was adopted and returned after 3 weeks. His owner said he was aggressive at the vet's office and growled at the neighbor. Once again he feels abandoned. Tyson is looking for a home that will be patient and understanding.
