Tyson is now reserved
The family who adopted Tyson tried very hard to make it work, they sought advice from professionals and both the family and the professional felt that they could not meet his needs primarily because they lived on a busy residential street where Tyson was constantly overwhelmed with cars, people and dogs.
It would appear that whomever has had Tyson as puppy did not instill boundaries or perhaps, as is so common these days, he’s spent most of his early life in a crate as in the house he’s jumping up at the kitchen worktops, clambering on the furniture, stealing things and does not understand nor want to be told not to. He is incredibly affectionate and playful and is happy to welcome visitors to the home.
When meeting dogs in a calm environment such as a vets waiting room or off lead here at the kennels he can meet dogs and people happily and plays beautifully with everyone. On a lead, he’s incredibly wary of cars, dogs and new people – there was an occasion where he did bite the owner when they were trying to block another dog from getting to him.
What kind of home are we looking for?
Someone familiar with the breed or similar breeds. We believe it would be in his best interests to be in an adult only home.. Being a Beagle, and not reknowned for their reliability offlead, he must have his own private garden for off lead exercise. He is great with other dogs playing in the yard here so another, better trained dog, might just be what he needs to keep him right!
For now, he will need walked off the beaten track – he and his new family are not going to enjoy a public park in the near future although with the right help there’s hope that in time he’ll learn to cope around other dogs. He can do it in a calm environment so he just needs his confidence built in the big wide world.
