11/07/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Tyson T is sweet as can B! Okay, cheesy…but so true! He was brought to us along with his housemate (Princess Luv A1095057) because their owner no longer had time to care for them. He’s previously lived with children as young as 2 (he was very respectful with them), knows basic commands, and is well behaved in the home. He seemed a little unsure of the strange new place he finds himself in when I first met him, but was clearly willing to trust and befriend me! He has walked beautifully on leash on all of our walks, loves treats (he takes them like a gentleman), and seems housebroken. When I take him in the yard he follows me around (the best shadow ever!) and is very attentive and engaged. If I run around he play bows and follows me and if I sit down he props his paws in my lap and is game to cuddle. He leans all of his weight against me when I scratch his back and manages to seem blissfully oblivious to his wagging tail hitting his face! He has been so sweet, gentle and fun that I could just kiss every last little spot on his ears! Please come see this special boy at Brooklyn ACC!
