My story

Tyson can't see why he hasn't been adopted yet!! Even though he is partially blind; he loves playing, he gets around really well, and his "difference" makes him even that more special! Even if it makes him a little clumsy at times, it is very endearing. He still enjoys all normal activities liking going for walks with his furry siblings and romping and playing in the yard. RHis eye doctor thinks he can see shadows but not clear images.


BONUS: Tyson can't see that 50% of his adoption fee is being paid for by a kind sponsor but you can - only $125 to adopt sweet, special Typson! Are you one who roots for the underdog? 


Tyson has a gentle soul and likes to snuggle up next to you.  Couch potato, lounger, dog bed crasher are all attributes he displays proudly!  While he may be a little bit on the lazy side, he is a great companion and LOVES to be around his people and loves to get pets and scratches.  He is a little shy/timid around new people but warms up to them in a quick minute.   


He likes to follow his foster mom around the house while she talks to him, so he knows where she’s going.  When his foster mom is busy, he loves hanging around with his gal pal dog.  She unwittingly serves as his eyes and leads him around the house and yard.  He loves all the furry friends that come and go in his foster mom's house.


He enjoys being outside. A yard with a fence would be best for Tyson as it's easier for him than going on daily walks.  He prefers a quiet home as he gets nervous when there’s a lot going on.  Little kids are too unpredictable, loud, busy for his comfort, but he’s good with older kids/teenagers.  He could be adopted as an only dog or into a family with furry siblings, but admittedly, having at least one other  low-key, friendly dog is probably best.  No male dogs for him—he is a ladies’ man all the way. Staying in touch with his hound-y side, he is not a fan of cats either.


DOB 09/30/2016; 62lb hound mix.  Even though he is a little older, he still loves soft toys, squeaky toys, stuffed toys and he shares them easily.  He, also, loves meal time...yum yum!   Going on car rides with his family is a favorite activity.   


As part of Tyson's 50% reduced $125 (standard $250) adoption fee, he is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet boy, you can email  If you wish to adopt Tyson, you can fill in an online application for him under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

1. Review the description of the pet you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular pet. The picture of the pet does not tell the whole story.

2. Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the pet you have chosen is a good match for your home.

3. Once the application is submitted we will contact you, your references, and your vet.

4. We require a home visit prior to dog adoptions.

5. If more than one person applies, we will go with the BEST fit. If all things are equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6. Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement.

7. An adoption fee of $275 for dogs under 6 months $250 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the pets while in foster care.

8. All Paws For Life pets are spayed or neutered if old enough, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. Puppies under 6 months of age will require a $100 spay/neuter deposit in addition to the adoption fee and a special puppy spay/neuter agreement. We are all volunteers and receive no monetary compensation for our work with the pets. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the pets.

9. Congratulations! You are on your way to having your new companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your pet at any time.
