The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around Toronto/Hamilton area find suitable and loving homes. Sometimes, the need extends beyond that area. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
According to sanctuary staff, Tyson’s owners “decided they would rather euthanize” him than “pay for his medical bills, so the clinic contacted Grassroots to take him in.”
Fortunately, this dear boy who is only just over 1 year old, only suffered “minimal injuries” and “no broken bones or serious internal injuries.” However, he does have “many lacerations to various parts of his body and did have to have stitches.”
Sanctuary staff say Tyson is “thriving in his foster home” where he gets along well with the other dogs and cats. It is suggested that he goes to a home that will include either of these. It is not recommended that he go to a home with small children as he does have “fear-biting issues” that surface when he is “unintentionally” injured or frightened.
Otherwise, he is a “happy and well-adjusted” dog, which is surprising after all he has experienced. Sanctuary staff believes he would fair well with older folks that have time to spend with him.
Tyson is neutered, housetrained and up-to-date on his routine shots. To enquire about adopting him, email firstname.lastname@example.org and put ‘Pet Inquiry: Tyson PFId#25257641’ in the subject line. You can also call 289.244.9103.
