This gorgeous hunk is Tyson the 12 year old Staffy X Ridgeback, who’s in the care of Carla Lane Animals In Need in Liverpool. His owner’s circumstances changed and now he’s looking for a pet free home where his fabulous solidity will be acknowledged with hearty cuddles!
He’s fine with other dogs but he’s overly boisterous while playing with them. Children from age 10 would be jolly pals for him as he’s an affectionate boy who does appreciate good company!
Tyson is adorable and has a real love of life…and food! He’s naturally very sturdy but also prone to gaining weight so this needs to be kept under control. He needs plenty of exercise too, little and often. He would suit fit, active owners who are experienced with bull breeds or similar because he is a big strong boy!
Tyson is lively and really loves his walks. He can get over excited at first, when he has a habit of grabbing the lead in his mouth but he will stop when told to in a firm voice. He wants to always be good! He just needs you to tell him how. Of course, his love of (carefully rationed) treats will be handy for bonding and training.
Tyson takes a while to settle in the car but when he does, he travels happily. He’s on supplements for a touch of arthritis in his back legs. The condition doesn’t hold him back though. He’s a buoyant, happy chap… and so gorgeous!
