About Tyson

Boxer mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Little Tyson (formerly known as Maloney) found himself at risk of euthanasia at a NYC shelter where he arrived as a stray. Now, Tyson is with a foster family and still searching for a forever family to call his own. 4 year old, 40 lb. boxer mix, Tyson, is a sweet (but stubborn) medium energy level pup. He does have some health issues and some behavior issues, but nothing major that can't be overcome as he has so much to offer the right family! Here's what Tyson has to say: 'I am a funny little guy - apparently I do things to make my foster moms laugh everyday. I love being near my humans and I will cry if I don't know where they are because I'm so afraid of being abandoned again. My favorite things to do are curling up and hanging out with you, eating, and sunbathing! I am not sure what happened to me when I was on the streets of the city, but I must've learned I had to protect myself so sometimes I can be reactive when I'm surprised or scared - especially if you startle me out of a sound sleep, or if you come into a dark room and I can't see you‰'Ű|.it takes me a minute to realize you aren't going to hurt me. I'm told I can also be super stubborn at times, but my Kryptonite (my favorite treats that I can't resist) is fresh vegetables, believe it or not - carrots and tomatoes especially! My foster moms have gotten me on a very healthy diet. I also really love having a fur-sibling to run, play, and wrestle with. My foster moms also think a fur-sibling is important because it helps remind me how well-adjusted dogs behave due to my underdeveloped social skills early on in my life. But - I don't necessarily love *all* other doggies - I'm selective and will need to decide for myself if we can be bff's. I do have a health issue (kidney disease) but that just means special food that the vet orders for me and having the vet check my kidney levels twice a year. I need to drink lots of water, too, and be able to go potty every few hours. This condition probably happened to me when I was on the streets of NYC and did not have a family to care for me. I also have a seasonal skin allergy (seasonal alopecia). It is not a big deal, and I'm told it's common in Boxers; just a special shampoo and some sunbathing time to keep my skin and fur nice. I walk really well on my leash, am housebroken, and I know my basic commands. I'm also very intelligent! I've even learned that when my fur-brother runs zoomies through the house, instead of chasing him, I'll just wait for him to come back around to start wrestling again! :-D I really want a forever home but I'm afraid I won't find one‰'Ű|.do you think you can help me?' Tyson's current foster moms have done a fantastic job with Tyson's health and diet, his leash skills, and basic training - now he needs someone to take him to the next level. 'Underneath his challenges, Ty really is a wonderful dog!' say his foster moms. 'He's such a goof ball (just don't tell him that!), and his face could melt a thousand hearts. He deserves to be with a family who is ready and able to invest the time and effort into helping him be the best pup he can be. To help keep his moods even, medication might be an option worth exploring.' Tyson needs an experienced, adult home where someone is home all or most of the time. He would do best with another similar-sized dog that is *exuberant/playful*. Tyson is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
