8 year old male
Knows basic commands
Fostered in Marysville, Washington
Hi guys! My name is Tyson and I would sure love to love you! My Foster Mom calls me her cuddle bud! Don’t get me wrong, I love to play fetch for a little bit each day but I am beginning to slow down so my real passion is my people. I love people, even the mini ones. My Foster Sister is 7 and she is really good at scratching that place on my neck that I just can’t reach.
I have a lot going for me! There’s my good looks- everyone keeps telling me how handsome I am! Plus, I’m trained to use my crate. I don’t love my crate, but I don’t hate it either. My leash walking skills are superior, and my overall temperament is ideal- calm with great manners. I am very gentle, and when I do decide to play fetch I let my people just reach in and take the ball right from my mouth.
I always want to know what my people are up to and will gladly follow anywhere you go. I really love it when we go somewhere in the car! I ride very well in the car. I hope you’ll let me sleep with you because cuddles are my favorite! I’m not too pushy though. I am very loyal to and protective of my Foster family. They always say things like “Loyal” and “Protective” and “Good Boy”. I’m not sure what that means, but they seem happy and if they are happy, I am happy! I don’t bark much, just a peep or two to make my presence known and if there is someone at the door. I haven’t encountered too many other dogs while in my foster home, but I’ve given indications that I would like to be an only dog.
I have met a lot of people lately and I really like that! I am a good listener, and I trust my Foster Mom when she says its ok and introduces me. I am a bit hesitant of strangers because I take pride in making sure my Foster family is safe. It only took a couple of minutes to know I’d be happy in my Foster home, and boy did I make myself at home! I will quickly adapt to my new forever home! I like a little water in my food since I’m getting a little older and don’t have the strong teeth of my younger years. But watch out for the after dinner slobber!
Foster Mom here- Tyson is the biggest, sweetest love there is! He hasn’t left my side in our time together. Tyson has not had one slip up. I’d say that his biggest flaw is the snoring, but I promise it is endearing. He isn’t as rambunctious as most boxers and prefers being inside to outside- at least in this drippy cold weather. Tyson is an absolute pleasure. I just know you will fall in love with this good boy as soon as you meet him!
