My story

Tyson is an 12 month old pup (born June 1, 2021), that lacked the important training he needed as a young dog, so he lacks some social skills and people boundaries.

He's in foster care in suburbia and currently spending time at the cottage up north and is having a blast. He'd do best in a home with backyard as he loves to run and hang out, outdoors.

Tyson will benefit best with the help of a professional trainer to help him be the best version of himself possible. He can be mouthy when he gets over excited, which is something his fosters continue to work on.

He's kind and sweet and gentle and has more independence and isn't a dog that loves to cuddle.

Tyson has not met a lot of other dogs in his life, and the ones we were able to test him with, he was nervous, but submissive without issue. As a hound dog, he likely would chase a cat, so best to be in a home without cats or small creatures.

Tyson did live in a home with a older child, and did wonderfully before joining our rescue.

Tyson is a really great dog and he's full of kindness and wants to give and receive love. He just needs to work on growing his confidence to take life on, outside of his personal space, more easily.

Tyson is a small dog. Weighing in at maybe 25-30 pounds. He looks bigger in his pictures than he actually is. He's knee height to the average person.

He would need someone that works from home or is home most often, as he isn't used to being left alone and until that confidence is built up, there could be separation anxiety. Also, as a hound dog, a home with shared walls is likely not a great option, as hounds can be vocal.

Tyson will need an active family, that can satisfy everything hound dog. He's the perfect outdoor adventure partner.

Tyson really is a great dog, that just needs the right home setting and handler to help him grow into a terrific adult dog.



FROM HIS FOSTER:

Tyson is a very sweet dog. He is cautious when meeting new people but quickly warms up and accepts everyone.

Tyson is housetrained, and will go to the door when he needs out.

He goes into his crate easily both during the day when necessary as well as at bedtime. He sleeps quietly through the night.

Tyson is still a puppy who needs to be reminded not to jump up on people or counters. He sometimes gets carried away in a play frenzy and can be too rough and mouthy.

He does whine on occasion and is vocal when his favourite person leaves. He can be distracted with play or treats.

Tyson knows sit and is working on come and stay. He pulls on leash; a bit less when wearing a harness.

Tyson is curious and not overly anxious, but new things occasionally startle him.

We have not had the opportunity to test him with cats. He does want to chase squirrels and rabbits.

Tyson loves his stuffies, especially the soft and squeaky ones. He has not chewed or shown interest in slippers, socks or other household items.
