Age: 4 years
Location: Milborne Port
Character: Tyson is a 4 year old staffie who is mainly white with brindle patches. This adorable boy has not had the kindest of starts to his life. Tyson has unfortunately been let down on many occasions and has been very undersocialised.
Since he has been with us, he has improved greatly, and we are sure he will improve further once he has settled in his own forever home.
Tyson is typical of his breed in that he adores people and just wants their attention. He would thrive in a forever home where he could feel confident and loved and safe.
His foster carer tells us that he is great indoors. He is fully house trained, does what he is told and is great with children. He is loyal, lovable and loving. He can also be left alone in the house for short periods. All he wants is a walk and lots of cuddles all day.
Tyson loves his walks and his behaviour is improving when out on a harness. However, Tyson does not like other animals and MUST BE KEPT ON A LEAD AND WEARING A MUZZLE AT ALL TiMES WHEN OUTSIDE THE HOME.
Tyson would make a great loyal companion. Once settled, the bond that Tyson has with his own special human is absolutely magical.
Type of home required: Tyson needs a loving, stable, pet-free family home with people who are willing to give him time and love. He is great with children but probably best placed with children aged over 10 purely due to his sheer strength and enthusiasm,
He needs an owner who understands the needs and behaviours of bull breeds, and who will be firm and fair with Tyson, encouraging good behaviour, but also disciplined enough to recognise that when we say he MUST be muzzled and on a lead in public at all times, we mean that it is a non-optional necessity.
Tyson is a truly gorgeous and loving boy, and we recognise his many, many wonderful qualities, and the right family will see his “bad points” as positives as well. He may not be able to live with other dogs or cats, but then, not everyone wants lots of dogs and cats.
He is a true gentleman who will be an absolute asset to the right home. Could this be YOU?
