11/18/2014 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: When asked what kind of home would be good for his dog, his former owner replied, ” An active family who does not mind cuddling and letting him sleep in the bed.” Surrendered as his family is moving where he is not welcome, we’re told that he gets along with kids and all people, is playful, energetic, loves going to the dog park, knows ‘sit’, ‘lie down’ and ‘give paw’, is housetrained, paper trained and crate trained. Those are some pretty awesome credentials! Tyson showed me many of his skills although he’s trying to figure out why his world has been turned upside down. He was eager to come out for a walk, didn’t mind being tethered for some photos, and wagged his tail when I made kissy noises at him. Wagging his tail at dogs walking by our pen, he crys a little to make a closer introduction. Tyson is quiet, and although he didn’t solicit affection, was happy to be pet. He found a squeaky tennis ball in the pen and was thrilled batting it around, stepping on it to make it squeak and was clearly able to amuse himself. Tyson is allergic to chicken and beef and has a favorite food that he likes to eat. When you adopt him we’ll give you all the details. A proven family dog, Tyson is looking for a new cuddle partner….he’s currently interviewing new families in Manhattan….be sure to get your application in now. Another volunteer writes: We love this dog so much it’s difficult to even write about him. Even after several weeks in the shelter, he remains the epitome of calm kindness, projecting serene affection to every single creature he meets. He loves dogs, he loves people, he’s gorgeous on a leash, he appears housetrained, and is so incredibly well behaved that even after a quick walk following too many hours in his kennel, he hops back up into his kennel with no protest and a kiss of thanks for having given him some time. Tyson’s waited so long with so much patience-please let him know it’s all been worth it!
