Tyson came into us at the Senior Staffy Club after his owner became unwell and he found himself spending long hours home alone with his brother Jasper.
Tyson's owner's living circumstances have since changed and they are unable to look after him.
Tyson is currently in our Worcester kennels. He is a confident dog who is happy to be fussed. He is a good boy to be harnessed and loves being out investigating everything.
He came in with Jasper, but they aren’t a bonded pair and he isn’t bothered whether Jasper is around or not.
Tyson hasn’t had much exercise in recent months, so when he came in he was a little overweight and pulled a little on the lead.
He has been with us for 3 weeks now, and thanks to his volunteers walking him daily, he has trimmed down and his lead walking has really improved. We have been building his walking time up and he is comfortable with his 20 minute walks. He really loves going across the fields on the training lead investigating, he is quite good on his recall, but he has not been tested off lead.
He has been quite good passing dogs whilst out walking, he hasn’t shown much interest with dogs barking in their gardens or on lead dogs passing. The kennels are in a rural area so we have not had any loose dogs approaching him. However, we are told he is not good with other dogs, so care must be taken when in areas with off lead dogs.
He really loves sniffing all the hedgerows along the lanes. He has shown a little interest in the lambs in the fields around kennels, but will walk on past when asked however we are sure he’d chase them if he wasn’t on the lead.
He hasn’t reacted to push bikes, horses or traffic passing whilst out and about and he loves people.
We have not tried Tyson in the charity van yet but will do so.
The vets came to the kennels to give Tyson his health check, blood tests and vaccinations and he was a good boy standing still for his examination.
He has had a full health check, including blood test, and all levels are within normal ranges.
Tyson will need to be neutered, and we will cover the costs of this.
• Tyson will need to be the only pet in the home, his previous owner advised he doesn’t get on with other dogs and will chase cats.
• He will need someone who is around most of the time as we are told he has been known to chew a little if left for long periods.
• Children would need to be 8 years plus, he is not keen on younger children grabbing at him.
Tyson is microchipped and vaccinated, he will need to be neutered at the cost of SSC.
He is currently in our Worcester kennels, but he can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet him at least twice where he is now.
There is a non-refundable adoption donation of £120 for Tyson and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
