Hi … my name is Tyson and here are some things you need to know about me!  After you read through my bio, if you think I might be the perfect pup for you, please go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org/forms and complete your adoption application online. I AM A SUPER SENIOR!  Tyson is still a clown!  He still loves to run and play with his foster siblings, although he doesn't run as fast or play as long as in his younger days. His arthritis slows him down, but he hasn't become a total couch potato yet! Tyson does well with most other dogs IF they are properly introduced.  He is OK having another pup around for company as long as they know how to chill. But he would be fine as an only pet with an owner who spends quality time with him. At the top of his wish list is a fenced yard where he can explore safely off-leash.  He will be happiest with a family who will spend lots of time with him.Tyson is housebroken and crate trained although he really doesn’t like staying in the crate.  He has nice house manners and settles nicely when inside. He will do best with a loving family that will make him an important family member.  He just needs a family who will love him and spend lots of time with him.   Approximate age/birthdate:  ~ Feb 2009Weight/size: 50 – 55 lbsHousebroken:  YESCrate trained:  YES but he is not thrilled about going into a cratePersonality:  happy, playful, loving   Energy level:  medium Fenced yard required?:   YES .. he really enjoys spending time outside exploring   Does he/she jump fences?  NO   Leash walk:  YES Obedience training:  Knows ‘sit’ and ‘off’Riding in vehicles:  RIDES OK but gets a little anxious at firstSpayed/neutered:   YESUp-to-date on routine vaccinations:   YESMicrochipped:   YESSocial with other dogs:  YES when introduced properly  ... may be a bit intimidating to very small dogs Social with cats:  NO CATSGood with children: Hasn’t been around children while in foster care but he would probably be fine with older children.  Would probably not be a fan of loud, active  younger children   Adoption fee:  $75   We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits.  You can expedite the process by providing accurate email addresses for all your references.  Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have 10 or more applications in process.  We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible.   When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if Tyson picks you too. If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee, and an adoption contract to be signed. Please feel free to email weluvpups@hotmail.com if you have additional questions.
