About Tyson

Adoption Fee: 125.00
Lab mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

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 Tyson! Are you one who roots for the underdog? Then go no further than Tyson. Tyson is partially blind and totally lovable! Even if it makes him a little clumsy times, but it is a little bit endearing. Regardless of his special quality, he can get around and play quite well. His eye doctor thinks he can see shadows but not clear images. 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. He isn't perfect but he sure is close! We are still working on fully house training and he does love to SMELL tasty food and counter surf and grab a tasty treat if it is close to the edge. He does well in his crate but doesn't need one as he isn't a mischievous boy. So a family ready to continue working on consistency, routine, and proper boundaries with positive reinforcement training will be great for Tyson. 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.
