Available for adoption through Northeastern Boxer Rescue
fostered in NY
is a Name A Boxer dog!
“I grew up with a boxer named Tyson. He passed away last year from old age and hip dysplasia. Tyson was my best friend and I miss him dearly. I know this boxer will be as sweet, kind, and loving as my Tyson was to me…”
Here is the latest:
"Everyone loves Ty. Recently I took him to the park where they were having a fishing derby. There was a lot of activity going on and Tyson was great with everyone he met. He just looks at me and I say, "OK" and he's their friend.
We're still working on the leash. He still thinks he's a bloodhound; nose to the ground. Not too much crossing in front of me or behind me. He still acts like he has to take everything in all at once. It seems like he hasn't smelled flowers or the grass, heard the wind, or water running in a creek. But he isn't afraid of anything.
Ty is putting on some needed weight. He is now eating approximately 4 1/2 cups of food throughout the day. He liked his kong the first day but leaves it alone until I get home now. When he can't get all the kibble out he barks at it. After 3 or 4 minutes I surrender and finally knock it out for him and he‘s back to being a happy camper.
Ty is better with the birds that I keep in a separate room. Sunday we all sat on the couch with no whining or staring.
Today he had the run of the house while I was at work. He did great in the morning and in the afternoon. So if there is the "devil" or "evil" lurking inside, he hasn't let it out yet =)
He is an easy boy!"
Below is a report from Tyson's foster mom:
“Tyson is a trooper. After 10 long hours on the road crated in a van, and 2 1/2 hours in the back seat of a car, Tyson is safe.
He is such a loving and well-mannered boxer boy. He is very well behaved. He has not even had one accident in the house. This charming boy sleeps through the night and prefers to sleep on my bed. Tyson also enjoys lounging on the couch.
The first full day in his new surroundings, he spent going in and out with me in the fenced yard. He loves to run and wants to be around someone all the time.
I don't think he was in a crate until his trip. He isn't real fond of it. Tyson seems to do well on the leash. He gives a head and ears up look when he sees another person or animal then continues on and he's back on track.
Tyson is thin and could gain a few pounds; which we are working on. He takes food and treats very gently and waits until you say OK. So far, he has barked once; when he was in the back room and my mom came into the house from another room (just a, ‘who are you?’ type bark). He has met the neighbor’s dog and she barked at him, but he just looked at her like she was dumb.
I cannot say anything negative about Tyson; he is a REAL pleasure and a charming companion. Anyone would be lucky to have him as part of their family.”
