About Tybee

Adoption Fee: $250
Boxer mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Tybee is a 2-3 year old, 80+ pound, very tall black Boxer. Current on vaccines, neutered, house and crate trained. He is ok with female dogs, but I wouldn't put him with a male dog that is large and would do very slow introductions. He is well housetrained and never messes in his crate. He is well crate trained and goes in without a problem. He does walk well on the leash, but can pull a bit if he wants to get to something. He does know his basic commands of sit, stay and down. He is highly treat motivated and is trained to sit at street crossings. He also does try to sit along the walk to see if he can coax an extra treat or two! As for children, he is great with them, but due to his size, I would recommend older children. Tybee is still working on his mouthing, where he chews on hands and has to be reminded not to do this. We work to not get him overexcited as he can be overstimulated and then mouths a lot and becomes very pushy. He is a sweet, curious boy that wants to be loved. He does need to be monitored when out walking, as he is like a toddler where everything goes in the mouth (frogs, centipedes, worms, acorns, bugs, etc.). He loves to run and jog, and would do great with an active family that would love to get his energy out. He has the entire staff at his Veterinary Office madly in love with him, and his great personality. He does well with both men and woman. He also rides very well in the car in his crate. He has also done well living with rabbits, chincillas, sugar gliders, rats and guinea pigs without even bothering one of them. If interested in adopting Tybee please fill out an adoption application at operationsaveashelterdog.org. Adoption fee $250.
