Tyler is a very sweet boy who found himself abandoned with a hip injury wandering the streets in the cold and rain. Fortunately he was rescued by some Good Samaritans who took him in while they found help for him. He has fully recovered from his hip surgery. Tyler has gained some much needed weight and has filled out nicely.
Tyler is a moderate energy Velcro boy and loves to follow his people around. Tyler is very oral and always has lots of kisses for whoever is nearby. He also likes to grab your tasty little fingers but he has a very soft mouth and has always been gentle. He does not always take treats gently so he needs to work on that. Tyler is not food aggressive nor does he resource guard. Tyler does not counter surf and does not beg at the table although he will gladly accept any table scraps that are offered. He waits patiently while his meals are being prepared. At home Tyler is a very calm and mellow gentleman and gets along great with his four foster doggie sisters. Tyler is not a barker but does bark at the doorbell or coyotes when they wander into the backyard. He knows some commands and is housebroken. He will always let you know when he has to go potty and how urgent it is. He sleeps though the night, likes to dream and loves to sleep on his back on his bed.
Although quite strong, Tyler is a loving, playful, well behaved gentleman. Tyler would do well in a home with other dogs or as an only dog in the home. Tyler has no separation anxiety. He has proven to be very trustworthy when left alone and can have the free run of the house. Tyler is not a door dasher but he does want to follow you out the door, He seems to understand 'stay' when you go out the door. Tyler is always eager to go for a ride and he rides very well in the car.
Tyler loves going for walks and is good walking on leash however he is reactive when he sees people or other dogs approaching. Tyler is currently working with a trainer to overcome his leash reactivity. This issue will require an experienced dog owner/handler who will continue to manage and reinforce Tyler's training. Tyler has shown a moderate level of prey drive; he would really like to chase that squirrel, rabbit, lizard or whatever else grabs his attention. Tyler has not been tested with cats but his leash reactivity and prey drive behaviors suggest a home with no cats. Tyler has not been tested with children but his leash reactivity, prey drive, and oral behaviors suggest that he would do best in a home without children.
