Characteristics: Tyson was surrendered to the shelter as his owner can no longer take care of him. Tyson is an overall nice boy! Has started showing some kennel stress and that is why we are hoping to move him into a foster based rescue.
Notes from Evaluator: Tyson is a very loving and playful dog.
He doesn’t seem to know any commands like sit or stay, but seems very willing to learn. He was very good with me and my husband and the intake form says he was good with kids, as well as other pets. It said that he was house trained, but of course when you are at a shelter it is hard to tell. Tyson is very playful, likes to play ball, but again doesn’t know drop it or leave it. He needs someone to work with him on basic skills but otherwise has a wonderful personality! He does seem underweight for his size, but given the stressful environment he is in I think he will blossom with a calmer environment
