Age: Seven years old
Tyson was a stray, who is now at Pennine Pen, looking for his new start.
Tyson is completely blind in both eyes. He has been checked by our vet and sadly. he is not a candidate for surgery. Tyson has the most loving personality once he knows you, but understandably at first in a new environment, he is unsure and can be growly. He will therefore need patient owners who will let him adjust in his own time and let him come to you for attention until he is settled.
Tyson cannot be rehomed with children, but could be rehomed with the right match of another dog (an easy going older dog, that will not want to play, or mind if he accidently bumps into them). Tyson does enjoy his walks but he is not a dog that wants to keep going to new places. He likes a routine and to know where he is as it makes it a lot easier for him.
Once Tyson is settled and knows your voice, he follows you around everywhere and just wants to be close and touching you.
This boy has been through so much change recently and he really deserves a family who are going to understand his needs and take their time with him.
He follows us through the Rescue by sound. We keep talking to him and clicking our fingers so he knows where we are and if he is about to bump into something, we shout “Steady” and he knows and is more careful. He is a very clever boy indeed!
Tyson is toilet trained and has travelled well, secured in a crate, in our car.
