Miss Freya has been hanging out in Wisconsin for over two years now waiting for the right family to find her. Let’s help get her story out there!
From the first moment we met this sweet girl in Texas through our friends at Corridor Rescue, we all knew she was extra special and instantly melted our hearts. Not only has she survived being hit by a car, but she continues to thrive despite some limited mobility in her back legs, and does it with a big smile on her face. Her pure joy for life and her determination to keep on moving even after what has happened to her in the past is so inspiring. We are so grateful that the amazing people with Corridor knew she was destined for great things here in Wisconsin!
She has been continuing her visits with Emily at Peak PEMF performance and has been responding well to chiropractic care and water therapy. Most recently, her foster mom has noticed her tail wags more, and she has been trying new things like going up a few stairs all on her own! It will be important for her adoptive home to keep bringing her to therapy to help her continue to strengthen her back legs and to keep her at her best! We are so lucky to have people like Emily in our area to use as resources for our extra special pups in need. Since being up here in Wisconsin, her walking has improved so much and she is getting better each day with going potty on her own outside! She is still working on being able to stand up to go number two, but her strength and balance are not quite there yet.
Freya is the sweetest girl you will ever meet. She has not met any human she doesn’t love, and she sure makes it difficult not to love her back . The more time she spends in her foster home, the more her personality blossoms. She is a bit wobbly when walking, but once she starts to run around, she is off to the races!! Falling down is part of her routine, but with her amazing resilience, she gets right back up to try again. Nothing can keep this girl down! Freya is a big fan of playing with her doggie foster siblings and would love to go to a home with another dog. She also has a lot of fun playing with her toys
Freya is approximately 5 years old and just under 60 pounds. As most rescue dogs, her breed is a best guess and she is listed as a mix, but we think there is some Great Pyrenees in her based on her talkative personality and coloring. Her ideal home will be prepared to give her the extra special care that she needs to be the best dog she can be.

Indy is so excited to meet you, you and you! He loves everyone he meets! He is a young adult weighing in at 35 pounds. When he was surrendered the original owner said he was a German Shepherd/Heeler mix. While many feel sorry for him when they meet him, he does not see it that way! He radiates positivity and happiness. He loves everyone he has ever met. He loves dogs that love to play with him. He likes to chase the kitties in his home but will not hurt them. He does wish his people would never leave the house and prefers to never leave your side. Indy was originally an owner surrender to a rescue group in Kentucky because his needs were more than the breeder could handle. Indy suffers from Swimmers Syndrome. Swimmers Syndrome is a rare condition in which a puppy is unable to physically stand or walk, but instead lies flat on its chest and abdomen with hind legs extended behind and its forelegs extended to the front and/or sides. The only motion the puppy is capable of is paddling its limbs as though it is swimming. Indy is able to stand on his front legs and pull himself around that way. With his dragging and trying to stand, at times he does develop some sores and skin shearing and his hind limbs need to be wrapped or wearing sleeves/pants at all times. Because of his lack of muscle he does not have a lot of bladder control so he wears belly bands and because he drags his butt he wears a diaper. He has an easy therapy routine to maintain his range of motion and some swimming therapy to help maintain his strengthening. Indy is available for someone who is dedicated to learning his routine. We know that Indy may not be a great fit for every household but we know his perfect family is out there and he cannot wait to show them his sparkling personality and stunning smile!

Sampson is a sensitive guy who loves his people with all his heart. His journey has been anything but easy, but he has overcome all the obstacles thrown his way. Sampson was adopted out as a puppy in 2019 where he lived with his family for two years. We learned that he struggled with anxiety, and his family unfortunately couldn’t help him through it. We wanted to get to the root of his anxiety, and give him the best chance at living a happy, fulfilled life, so we sent Sampson to spend some time with our trainer. His nerves can get the best of him, so teaching Sampson to “turn off” and just relax has really helped him be less nervy. Sampson has been back with us since March and we have learned that he is a dog who thrives with structure and routine. It is important that he continues to get this in a new home. Sampson is 5 years old and weighs 60 pounds. He loves to get out for walks, and is very respectful on leash. He will happily follow along at your heels. He enjoys hitting the trails near his foster home, and loves to explore. Sampson has met older children and thinks they are pretty great, but it does take him a minute to become acclimated when he meets new people. Sampson previously lived with another dog and did fine. If there was another dog in his new home it would be important that the dogs are compatible. Because Sampson is insecure, he would do best with confident dog mate. We are happy to do multiple meet and greets to ensure Sampson and any potential dog sibling will be a good fit! We have not seen Sampson interact with cats, so we are unsure how he would react in their presence. We would love to find Sampson a family who is patient and willing to take their time with getting to know Sampson before bringing him home. Deep down Sampson is a big goofball who has a heart of gold. Take a chance on him, and you are guaranteed a friend for life.

Eddie came to us from an overcrowded shelter in Angleton, TX as a puppy. He was adopted and sadly returned to us at about a year of age due to conflict between him and the resident dog. He has been back with us since June of 2022, and continues to search for his perfect match. It is taking Eddie a little bit longer to find a forever home as it takes him time to become comfortable with new people. He is careful with where he places his trust, and needs someone who can dedicate time and patience while working on building a relationship together.
Eddie is around 2 years old, and weighs about 50 pounds. He is crate trained, knows all of his basic obedience, and is very respectful while walking on leash. He utilizes his “place” command to practice calmness. We can send him to his bed while preparing his food, walking by with another dog, being around new people, or just hanging out and doing nothing. Eddie is e-collar trained, has a solid recall and has mastered a structured walk. He absolutely loves going for walks whether it be in a neighborhood or out on a nature trail. Eddie is incredibly smart, and once you have earned his trust, he is such a joy to be around. He can happily co-exist while out on a walk with people and dogs around as long as they respect his space, and don’t put unnecessary pressure on him (like trying to pet him, or allowing a dog to rush him). Eddie really enjoys running around our large, fenced in yard. He is always down for a game of fetch, and nicely places his ball right in your hand. He is always on critter patrol, keeping all the bunnies out of the yard, and saving his care-takers from pesky grass snakes. When the sun is shining he loves nothing more than laying in the grass and soaking up all the rays. On days when the weather isn’t great to spend outside, he can expel some energy by walking on the treadmill.
Eddie thrives with structure and leadership. Because he can be insecure and fearful, he really looks to his human for guidance. He won’t be a good candidate for a novice dog owner, and will require several meets. Our team will work directly with any potential adopters to coach you on how to be the owner Eddie needs. This will be a drawn out process, to ensure you and Eddie are both comfortable, and fully equipped to start the adoption trial. His ideal home would be with someone who can fulfill him both mentally and physically, and has no other pets, or children. He would do best in a calm household, with someone who enjoys time spent outdoors. Once you are in his circle of trust, Eddie will show you his playful and affectionate side we have all grown to love. He is a loyal companion, and cannot wait to be promoted to your adventure partner!

Our boy Brutus is still on the hunt for his second chance at a forever family! Mr. Brutus was originally adopted from us as a puppy about two years ago and he has once again landed in our care after having behavioral issues in his adoptive home. Brutus is now a little over 2 years old, just under 20 pounds, and a DNA test showed him to be a Chihuahua/Belgian Malinois mix. “Small dog with a large personality” really rings true when it comes to Brutus with his high intelligence, an eagerness to work and be challenged, and his desire for human companionship. Brutus has been in his foster home for 6 months and has gone through a 5 week board-and-train program with our friend Stephanie at the Beckett School. During his training, he has become very familiar with tools that will be essential for his every day life to help him keep a healthy state of mind and make good choices. Any interested adoptive home will be required to continue the use of these tools, experience isn’t required, but is definitely a bonus! An open mind to training tools and balanced training methods is a must. He has made amazing improvements since his board and train and we are so proud of him! Brutus is what we can best describe as a Sour Patch kid. He can be sweet, but he can also be sour. He struggles with food reactivity, resource guarding, and some other occasional cranky episodes that come mostly at night time, (waking up from a nap, not wanting to go in his crate) which his foster mom refers to as his night time “scaries”. He has not had one of these episodes in a couple months and is doing great! Brutus is a great little adventure buddy and is always up for a walk, run, hike, or any other kind of activity his humans are up for. He loves being challenged mentally as well as physically and enjoys learning new tricks or working on the ones he already knows. He is also great when going on car rides and just sits back to enjoy the ride. Brutus has mastered the “place” command and while he is out of his kennel, spends most of his time inside relaxing in his “place” and practicing being calm and not letting himself get too over stimulated. Naps are one of his favorite activities and he makes some pretty funny noises while yawning. He is continuing to work through his food reactivity and resource guarding by practicing the “out” command daily. His favorite activity outside is grabbing a tennis ball or any toy and running around the yard with it in his mouth. Unlike a lot of us, Brutus loves the snow and will run around in the snow and chase after snowballs! After some extended decompression time, Brutus has been co-existing with the dogs in his foster home and has done very well with them under close supervision, although he prefers dogs closer to his size. He likes to chase and be chased by his four-legged friends and just likes to feel like one of the gang. Brutus would do well co-existing with other dogs as long as they respect his space. Brutus would do best in a home with adults only. An active and structured home is his best fit, and a family that is 100% committed to keeping his training going throughout his life. Any leniency in this can create set backs and an environment that Brutus will take advantage of and will continue to act out in. He would love to do agility classes, obedience classes or other activities that help stimulate his busy mind. A home with a fenced in yard would be ideal to help him get as much exercise as possible. He truly is a great, quirky, little dog for the right home. He may be a challenging dog, but he is 100% worth it, he deserves a second chance at having a home. If you are looking for an adventure friend and feel like your home is the right environment for Brutus to continue to live a happy life, please fill out an application today!
Meet Bonny! Bonny is a 2 year old, 50 pound Terrier mix who was originally pulled from the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, TX. She traveled to Wisconsin in May where she continues to search for a forever home. She has completed a board and train program with our trainer and now has the tools to help her be a respectable girl. Bonny has a lot of great qualities. She is fully comfortable being crated, and is completely potty trained. She would do best in a home with no other pets. As far as we know she has not been exposed to children. She is very intelligent and has all of her basic obedience down pat. Bonny knows sit, stay, down, heel, and has great recall. She enjoys going for walks, car rides, playing with toys and being outside. Bonny is such a little love, and will take advantage of any opportunity to snuggle with her humans. She will require patience from her people as she gets acclimated. Bonny thrives with structure and consistency, and it will be important she gets this in her forever home. She is looking for an active family who is willing to continue on with her training while she searches for her forever family.
Oakley wanted to drop by and say “Howdy!”He came all the way up to Wisconsin from Texas on the search for a new family! He is about 1.5 years old and weighs 45 pounds. Oakley is thought to be a lab mix, but his breed is a best guess! Oakley is one smart dude. He already knows commands like “shake”, “sit”, “stay”, “place”, “break”, and knows his name! His fosters say he is working on “heel” and “leave it” also and making progress! He can be best described as a high energy social butterfly that loves meeting new people. He is very playful and curious and loves to play with toys and go for walks. His foster family reports that he LOVES car rides and if it were up to him, he would spend the entire day outside. After being active and energetic all day, he is down for a snuggle session with his people. There are some things Oakley is still working on including crate training and being on a leash. He does protest when in the kennel and it is clear he would prefer to be with his people. When he sees other dogs while on a leash, he gets so excited that he cannot contain it. He would really benefit from some extra training to learn to control his emotions and excitement. With how excited he gets, he also has a tendency to jump up on people so would do best in a home with older children. He would also love a home with an active family and would also love a fenced in yard to help him run around and get rid of some excess energy. If you are an active family looking for an equally active adventure buddy and are ready to continue working with him on his training, Oakley is the perfect match for you!
Pepper is about 12 years old and is a 20-pound Boston Terrier. This sweet girl came to us as a local owner surrender due to becoming overwhelmed with the living environment at her previous home. She loves her people with everything she has and just wants to be with them as much as possible. Pepper LOVES car adventures and makes a great errand buddy. She is a smart little cookie and knows commands like “sit”, “down”, “shake”, “dance”, “stay”, “wait”, “drop”, and “leave it”. She also kennels up well and keeps her crate clean, but has been having anxiety in her crate when her humans leave the home. Her ideal family will be one that is home often and would benefit from a family that can take things slow when leaving her home alone. Her foster family is currently working diligently with her on this and she is making improvements! She is potty trained and goes to the door when she has to go. Continuing with a consistent potty schedule will set her up for success!
Pepper would do well as an only dog, or with more laid-back dogs in the home. She is not afraid to let other dogs know when they are being a bit much for her and wants to be left alone. She is still working on the “sharing is caring” motto when it comes to toys and attention with other dogs and would do best in a home that continues to help her learn her manners. Pepper is VERY food motivated and really enjoys short walks to keep her Boston terrier energy at bay.
Pepper’s best fit home would be a quiet environment where there are not a lot of people coming and going and would do best in a home without children. Slow introductions to humans and dogs are also a requirement for Pepper. She takes her job as guard dog very seriously and will alert you if anyone pulls in the driveway or is near the home. Pepper, in true Boston fashion, is a quirky little old lady with the cutest butt wiggles that loves her humans fiercely and will show you her loving/fun side if given the chance. Do you think your home is the right fit for Peppers golden years? Apply today!
Meet Mark! This handsome beef cake currently weighs in at 60 pounds, and is 4 years old. Mark originally came to us in the fall of 2021 after he was saved from euthanasia at an overcrowded Texas shelter. Mark doesn’t let his unfortunate upbringing keep him down. He is full of personality and always up for a good time! We thought Mark found his forever home, but unfortunately due to some conflict between Mark and the other dog in the home, it was decided for everyone’s safety that Mark find a new place to call home. Because of this, we feel Mark would do best in a home as an only pet. He hasn’t been exposed to any feline friends, but because of his high prey drive to small critters, he would not be a good candidate for a family with cats. Mark is fully potty trained and does well in his crate. He has some FOMO when his four legged friends would leave for a walk and would vocalize his annoyance. Otherwise, Mark is known to seek his crate out anytime he wants to take a nap, and does great while his family is at work. Mark appreciates a good fetch session, and would thrive with someone who can fulfill him both physically and mentally. He is good blend of energy and chill. When Mark has gotten his energy out, he is always down for a cuddle session. Mark is looking for a foster/adopter who can provide him with the structure and consistency he needs to be the best boy possible. He is working on his leash manners and not being so excited when meeting her people. Because of his jumping we think a home with older children or none at all would be best for him. Currently he knows his name, sit and kennel up. He is a smart guy, and is ready to learn! There is so much to love about Mark, and he would be grateful to find someone who is willing to open their heart and home to him. *Mark is available for foster or adoption!*
Meet Timbo, the talkative Chihuahua! This handsome gent is about 7 years old and weighs in at 10lbs! Timbo loves to spend his days in the laps of anyone who will snuggle with him. He is an equal opportunity snuggler! Timbo loves to sing “Happy Birthday” and is pretty talkative about other things in his life; especially when he’s rolling around on his back. He gets little spurts of playfulness and they are just the cutest!
He is currently fostered with 3 bigger dogs and a cat. He has done well with all but does appreciate that they give him space when needed. Timbo is crate trained and sleeps comfortably and quietly in his crate. He does well with house training but should be kept on a consistent schedule for potty breaks.
Timbo would do well in a home with or without other dogs. He would love a lap to lay on and a cozy blanket to snuggle up in! He also loves a good kong stuffed with a little bit of goodness! Does Timbo sound like the dog for you? Apply today!
Milo! – PENDING!
Milo the Mighty Mutt is on the hunt for a forever home! This little guy has a lot to offer. He is estimated to be a year old, and is full grown at 14 pounds. Milo enjoys the company of dogs of all sizes. He is currently fostered with 2 large dogs, and is very respectful of them. He is also fostered with a cat, and while he has been known to engage in a game of chase, he redirects and listens well. Milo is fully crate trained, and will go in his crate throughout the day when he wants to rest. Another added bonus for Milo is that he’s potty trained! Milo will require a secure fence, or a tie out while being supervised outside. This escape artist will take an opportunity to get under the fence and check out his new neighborhood, so it is important to take safety measures while Milo is outside. He comes when called, and would benefit from someone who can continue to work with him on training. Milo can be sensitive to his paws being touched, and requires patience and slow introductions as he is getting acclimated to new people. Appropriate decompression time will be key to a successful transition for Milo. He quickly warms up, and will be your best friend in no time. Milo can be described as affectionate, animated, and spunky. He loves going for walks, soft, squeaky toys, and chewing on a good bone. Although it may take more than an initial meet to recognize Milo’s true personality, he is sure to wiggle his way right into your heart!
Oreo is estimated to be around a year old, and is full grown at 21 pounds. He has a very sweet personality, and has quickly settled into his foster home. Oreo has been exposed to dogs of all sizes, and does great. He is a playful little guy, and can’t get enough of his dog friends. He has never met a cat, so we are unsure how he would behave in their presence. An added bonus to his awesome personality, is that Oreo is potty trained, and fully comfortable when crated. He does have a decent amount of energy, and would benefit from an active household. Oreo loves everyone he meets, and his initial response is to jump for joy. He is working on keeping his excitement at bay when meeting new people. Oreo would thrive with someone who would enjoy taking an obedience class together, and continue on with his training. He is learning how to walk on leash, and brushing up on all his commands. He can be a little nervous when riding in the car. As Oreo becomes acclimated to car rides, we would recommend utilizing a crate. He is a fun-loving pup, and can’t wait to find a forever home of his own. Oreo enjoys fetch, playing with his housemate, snuggling with his humans, and being outdoors. If you think Oreo sounds like the perfect match for you, apply today!
Meet Kyle, the adorable Shepherd mix. We may be biased, but we’re pretty sure it’s illegal to be this cute! Kyle was born on 9/3/23 and currently weighs 17 pounds. He is currently being fostered with children, cats, and dogs. Kyle does well with all of his roommates! He is already a step ahead with potty training, and has started notifying his foster family when he has to go out by sitting at the door. Kyle’s crate training is a work in progress. He is known to cry when initially going into his crate, but will settle down and rest. He loves to be with his people more than anything, and will protest when he can’t be with them. His foster family continues to get him acclimated to being in his crate, and they are already seeing progress. We believe Kyle would do best with someone who has Shepherd experience. Kyle is extremely smart and would benefit from someone who can challenge him mentally. He loves to learn and thrives with structure. Kyle enjoys time spent outside, the company of his four legged friends, and anything that involves his humans. His best fit home would be someone who can dedicate time to training, who is active, and has a good understanding of the traits and characteristics of a Shepherd. He is such a great little pup! His sweet and playful demeanor is sure to capture your heart.
Kylie! – PENDING!
This adorable girl is accepting applications for a family of her own. Kylie is 3 months old, and currently weighs 16 pounds. Her Mom is believed to be a Shepherd mix. Kylie and her siblings all look a little different, so her breed(s) are a mystery! We do, however, estimate she will grow to be medium-large in size. Kylie is currently fostered with other dogs, and has done very well with all the dogs she has met. She has a playful demeanor and is very respectful of her four legged friends. Crate training has been going great for her. She is very comfortable in her crate and doesn’t make a peep all night. She already has a jump start on potty training, and is doing really well on the schedule her foster family has set for her. She has never been exposed to friends of the feline kind. We believe with proper introductions and guidance, she could happily co-exist with a dog-friendly cat. Fast movements and loud noises from small children have proven to be overwhelming for Kylie, so we are recommending she go to a home with children over the age of 5. She is very affectionate and enjoys people very much! She is a typical puppy, still learning the ropes. Kylie would benefit from someone who can continue to work on socialization and obedience with her. Once she is able to get out some of her puppy energy, she loves nothing more than to cuddle in your lap. Could Kylie be the perfect girl for you?!
This scruffy cutie is Keef and he is ready to find his forever family! Keef is about 3 months old and right now is just under 13 pounds with lots of room to grow. His exact breed is a best guess, but his mom is a Shepherd mix so he will likely grow up to be a medium-large sized dog. He loves to snuggle and does well on car rides and is learning how to play with toys and how fun bones can be too! Keef enjoys the company of people and seems to love just about everybody! Keef can be a bit nervous in new places at first but is slowly coming out of his shell and gaining confidence! He is currently fostered with dogs of all sizes and does well with them and does enjoy playing once he feels less nervous. Bigger dogs can be intimidating to him at first, but he warms up pretty quickly! Keef is a young dog so is still working on quite a few things and will need a family that continue to give him lots of structure and a good routine. He is working on crate training and still cries quite a bit in there. He does not enjoy being away from his people and has some separation anxiety, this will be something important for a new family to work with him on. Keef is also working on his potty training and has frequent accidents, but with a good routine and structure, he will continue to improve. He would really benefit from obedience training and puppy classes to help him learn to be the best pup he can be. Is your family up for the challenge of raising a puppy to be a wonderful adult dog? If so, apply today!
This handsome little guy is Barkley, the 2-year-old chihuahua/terrier mix and weighs in at about 13 pounds. He is mostly potty trailed but will rely on a regular schedule and a family that can give him plenty of breaks outside to make sure he continues to learn the rules of the house. He really does best with a structured home. This brave little man has no fear! He is being fostered with a cat currently and leaves it alone and seems to have no interest. He plays well with the big dogs in his foster home and enjoys playing tug of war with them. He is such an enthusiastic player and has lots of energy and requires a lot of exercise. His new family will have to be active, and willing to continue to work on some of his puppy-like behaviors. Training will be a must for this puppy! Another favorite activity is snuggling, he loves to lay next to his humans or on a lap under a blanket. He also likes to chew on bully sticks and play with toys and other dogs. He knows some basic commands like “sit”, “down”, “come”, and is still working on learning the word “no”. Barkley will require a secure fenced in yard as he is a flight risk, this will be non-negotiable in his potential adoptive home. With his energy, he would love having an equally active playmate in his adoptive home as well! Are you an active family looking for a compact, energetic pup? Maybe your home would be what Barkley has been searching for!
Kalie and her adorable ears can’t wait for you to learn a little more about her! She is about 3 months old, is a Shepherd mix and weighs 15 pounds. She may be small now, but she will be a medium to large sized pup when fully grown. Kalie is still young so is continuing to work on potty and crate training, she does well with a structured schedule and improves daily. This cutie pie does love people and other dogs, but can be nervous at first when meeting them, so just needs a little time to warm up to them before she is fully comfortable. Kalie is a very smart pup and has already mastered the art of walking on a leash and is a great listener! She is currently fostered with other dogs and cats, and has been around kids ages 5-teens and does great with everyone. She sometimes chases the cats if they run away, but redirects well if told “no”. She loves to play with dog friends and would love a home that has another dog that likes to play as well. Kalie is a chewer so needs lots of options for toys to chew on to keep her busy, but her foster says she has done great as long as she gets plenty of exercise and at least one daily walk. This special girl will need a home that has breed experience and is ready to enroll her in training classes. Patience, a good routine/structure, and exercise will also be a requirement for Kalie’s adoptive home. If you feel you meet these standards, fill out an application for Kalie!
Meet Dobie! This little cutie is all legs and under bite weighing in at just 10 pounds. He is about 9 months old and listed as a terrier mix. He is currently fostered with other dogs and a cat as well and has been doing well with everyone! He is a social little fella and has been around large dogs and little dogs and plays respectfully with them, he is also great with the cat in his foster home! Being a young, small breed dog, he is still working on potty training and working on not having accidents in his crate. Dobie will need a home that will continue to work on this with him and have lots of patience and a consistent routine to help him learn! Dobie loved belly rubs and enjoys showing his love for everyone by giving lots of kisses. His favorite activities include following his people around and snuggling up with them too! He is also a fan of playing ball and chasing his doggy friends around the fenced in yard. He is still working on being comfortable on a leash and can be a bit fearful while on a walk due to lack of experience, but with the right family and practice, he will keep improving! Due to this, Dobie would likely do best in a home with a fenced in yard. He would really benefit from training and learning basic commands and manners as well! Dobie would do great in a home with other dogs, but would also be ok being the solo dog in the home since he has a great fondness for his people. This active little spunky guy is looking for a fun loving family that can provide him the home and family he deserves!
Tyson was pulled from an overcrowded shelter, and has been in our care since July. Sadly, he was heartworm positive and needed to complete treatment before he was ready for adoption. We are happy to report that Tyson is healthy, and ready to find his forever home! Tyson is estimated to be around 6 years old, and currently weighs 79 pounds (his ideal weight would be around 70ish pounds). This big guy has so much offer. Here is what we can tell you about Tyson!
Tyson is incredibly sweet, and loves everyone he meets. He has the best wiggles and in typical Boxer fashion, seeks attention anywhere he can get it. He has a laid-back demeanor, but enjoys getting out for daily walks. He is currently fostered with two other Boxers and an English Bulldog. He does great with all of the dogs in the home. Slow introductions to other dogs is the key to success with Tyson. He is known to get a little overzealous meeting new dogs, but with slow intros, he happily co-exists. He has short bursts of energy and will engage in play, otherwise he enjoys going for pack walks and hanging out with the dogs in his foster home. Tyson has never been exposed to cats, or children to our knowledge. Tyson is potty and crate trained. Every night around 8:30, he will put himself to bed by walking to his crate and will lie down until you shut the door. He enjoys his crate very much, and also likes to curl up in a comfy dog bed to nap. He appreciates a good bone to chew on, and is just happy to be with his people.
Tyson’s ideal home would be with someone who can commit to getting him out for walks, has a good understanding of the Boxer breed and all of their quirks. He would thrive with someone who can continue to work with him on his obedience, and provide with him guidance and structure. Could Tyson be the perfect match for you? Apply today!
