TYSON – 19033
Safe - 2-2-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Tyson. My animal id is #19033. I am a male brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 6 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 24-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as animal behaviour – not house trained.
Tyson is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we suggest that Tyson would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: So handsome and clearly ready to make new friends, Tyson is easily leashed, gives me a big stand up hug, and out the door we go. He potties immediately, although his former owner says he’s not fully housetrained. Because he loves treats, he should be easy to train with positive reinforcement (aka lots of ‘good boy’ treats). Sweetly wagging his tail at some small dogs we passed, we know that Tyson lived respectfully with a small dog, and playfully with a cat! He doesn’t guard his things, can be nervous around strangers but warms up, and barks at fireworks. Tyson showed off his sit for a treat, jumped up on the bench to cuddle with me, and has done well in playgroups with females (as of this writing he has not been with males). Tyson’s world is a bit confusing right now, but he’s doing a great job of acclimating to his new environment. Of course, he’d do best in his new home with his new people. Come meet our handsome boy today.
My medical notes are…
