A volunteer writes: Well, helllllllllllllllllloooooooo handsome! This gorgeous dog was my date for a walk to the park where he showed off his housetraining skills and leash manners. He pulls a bit on leash but it seemed more about looking for his people than poor manners. He was surrendered to our care due to his person’s “personal problems”, and was beautifully taken care of. His coat is lush and clean, his weight perfect for his size, and you know by the worried look on his face that he’s trying to figure it all out. We’re told that he’s loving and comfortable around kids, has spent a lot of time with small breed dogs and is playful, and matches his play/energy style to the person he’s with. Bryson is fine taking a bath and loves a blow dry after the bath……….say it with me…awwwwwwww :). Bryson and I shared some cuddles before he ran off to greet a dog in an adjoining pen. In his first playgroup he greeted the helper dog with a soft body and then went off to explore the pen. Our behavior team was impressed with his good manners letting us know that he’ll be a good fit in a home with average dog experience. A proven family dog, Bryson is hoping to find a new family to take care of today.
Bryson is a beautiful pit bull mix. He is a little over one year old. He has a little scab on the tip of his left ear that has been there for a few months. Bryson has never been seen by a vet. His previous owner had him for almost a year.
Around strangers this dog is very playful. He loves to play fetch and tug with his rope. His energy level is kind of dictated by the person he is playing with. If the person is playing with a lot of energy, Tyson will match that energy level. Tyson is very loving and comfortable with kids who are around 8 years or older. He can be pretty exuberant with kids but it’s all in love. Tyson has spent a lot of time with smaller breed dogs. He was always very playful towards them. This boy has never spent any time with cats.
Bryson has never bitten a person or animal before. He is a very friendly dog. Bryson rarely has accidents in the house. He will urinate and defecate in the home if he doesn’t go outside more than one time in a day. Bryson is pretty relaxed when it comes to load noises outside. He might bark a few times but he doesn’t hide or cry. This dog has grown out of a small food guarding issue he used to have. From time to time he might growl if a bone or toy is taken away. Bryson is totally fine with bath time. He will try to drink the water.
Bryson loves any type of attention. He loves a good brushing and really loves a blow dry after his bath!
For a new family to know:
Bryson is pretty well trained to use the bathroom outside. He is a very playful and affectionate. He can get pushy if he needs to go out or needs to eat. He is mellow at times as well. This dog has a lot of love to give and a lot of energy to burn. He is used to normal walks on the leash. He likes up to 3 long walks per day.
Behavior during intake:
This dog was calm once the owner left. He did try to run after him when he left. The dog responds very well to treats. He did not bark at all dring the intake. He allowed me to collar him, take his photo and give him treats with no problem. He even laid on his back and waited for me to rub his belly.
BEHAVIOR : AVERAGE HOME
Bryson pulls a bit on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Bryson was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He shows minimal interest with the toy he smells it and licks it then turn away.
Bryson was surrender to us. According to his previous owner Bryson Around strangers this dog is very playful. He loves to play fetch and tug with his rope.
