Pet of the Week February 10, 2021

Hi! I’m Tyson, and I am the longest resident here at the shelter. Well, technically, I’m not a resident since I’m in a foster home, but I’ve definitely been looking for my forever home the longest. I’ve been looking for a family to call my own since April! I know good things come to those who wait, so I’ll be patient. In the meantime, I’m learning how to be the best boy ever in my foster home. You see, my foster mom isn’t your typical dog mom, she’s a trainer, and she’s been teaching me how to be a gentleman. I know basic commands and am a master at the Place command. Place is when my foster mom tells me to chill out in a certain spot for however long she wants; it could be two minutes or two hours! That takes some serious discipline and mental focus! I’m also crate and house trained. In fact, I love my crate; it’s my place of zen.
I am an active dog who needs an active owner. I can be your hiking, running, roller blading, or just plain walking buddy. I walk well on a leash when you use my sprenger collar. My foster mom will teach you how to use it. Even though I love to go, go, go, I know when it’s time to relax; just rub my belly and I’ll be putty in your hands. I get along great with other dogs, but I’ll match my playmate’s energy, so I may need some redirection (and I respond great to that) if you have a rambunctious dog at home.
If you pick me, you’ll be getting a great dog with a good foundation of training. I need someone who will continue to work with me and by my leader, an alpha who will give me the direction and guidance I need. I would make a great family dog, but because of my sprightly personality, I would do best in a home with no small children. I’m excited and ready for this next chapter in my life. I’m ready to finally find a place to rest my head . . . for good.
