This handsome young dog was turned
over to GSRNE when he was just 9 months old and it didn’t take long
to discover he needed a lot of work! When Tyson first arrived at his
foster home he had no leash manners, no training, was mouthy, and
didn’t like to be touched. His foster home has been working with him
and in just a few short months he’s already showing progress.
Tyson is energetic, enjoys life, and
will make a great hiking companion for someone. He loves to go for
walks, especially in the woods. He’s friendly with people and other
dogs and learning that he can’t jump on humans to get their
attention. He rides well in the car and is content to just go on
errands with his family.
Although he doesn’t seem to be an
overly affectionate dog, he does enjoy being with his people. He
follows his foster mom around the house and stays near her wherever
she is. Tyson likes hanging out in the yard and will entertain
himself with a toy or a bone. He’s fast and agile and would probably
excel in an activity such as herding or agility. After he’s burned
off that puppy energy he’ll settle down nicely, lying quietly next
to his family, chewing a bone.
Outside of the home Tyson is
friendly with other dogs and has little to no reaction when other
dogs approach or bark at him. However, in his foster home he wants
to be top dog and tries to bully his foster brother. He will block
the other dog from the stairs or the door and is always taking food
and toys away. Tyson’s dominant and will push the boundaries if he
doesn’t have a strong leader. His foster family describes his
personality as “bold” and “vibrant” and that you always know when
Tyson’s around! His ideal home will be an experienced GSD owner that
will continue his training and provide plenty of exercise and mental
If you’re looking for a diamond in
the rough Tyson just might be your perfect companion!
