Tyson is a wonderful 1 year old Terrier mix male that needs a excellent and loving home. Sadly was owner surrender with no information on why. :( Very scared and confused in the shelter environment, he completely shut down. Day by day he slowly opened himself up to staff working with him. Now safe in our rescue program, he is ready to find a awesome family that will love him for the rest of his years! Still a tad bit hand shy, he is suitable for a family with respectful children, single or couple that have the time, energy, love and stable home to offer him. He would love to go on long walks, runs, hikes, camping, you name it! Tyson loves other dogs, tested great with cats, crated ONLY at night. VERY sweet, loves to shower his foster family with kisses and tail wags. Tyson needs a home with another dog or have access to the yard all day. He will cry if crated and left alone during the day (in the crate). He ideally would be a perfect ranch dog. Does not stray, doesn't bother critters or livestock. Adoption donation $350, includes his neuter, rabies, dhpp vaccine, Bordatella vaccine, microchip, worming, frontline, heartworm test, heartgard.

*Please be ready to adopt when making a appt., we do not hold dogs while you get ready/go on vacation etc. Dogs remain available until they are adopted. If you aren't ready to potentially take a dog home, please contact us when you are. :) This helps keep our available appointments /time productive.
We never say a dog is housebroken, a new routine, environment, food, all lends itself very well to having a accident in the home. Please take any new dog regardless of age and act as if they are not housebroken.
Barking/Digging: Any dog can be or become a barker, or digger if the behavior is allowed and not corrected. A dog can act one way in one home and a completely different way in another.
Whining: The first few days in a new home, a adopted dog can become VERY upset, anxious and vocal. Every home they go into, there is a adjustment period that will need to be understood. We suggest "test"runs when you leave the dog alone. Make is short segments first and increase the time. This way the dog knows you are always coming back. Make sure they have something to keep themselves occupied with while you are away.
BITING: Please do not EVER put your face in a newly adopted dogs face or take food/toys our of their mouth or position. This is the surest and fastest way to get bit. Especially children.
Adopting a dog takes time, patience and a commitment from his/hers new family, please be prepared for ALL the ups and downs when bringing home a wonderful dog in need.
