My name is Tyson and I am … A Big Teddy Bear!

I was in the shelter for 30 days and I was heartbroken that I didn’t have a home. I stopped eating and lost weight and got depressed. But I got a foster home and I like it here a lot. I love my walks and all the neighbors in my neighborhood think I am awesome. I like everyone – adults, kids and dogs. My foster family has a little Chihuahua who did not like the last dog that they found and brought home, but she likes me. I can sit, I take treats gently, and I am good on a leash.

Best of all I do not get on the furniture or steal food even when I could very easily get it off the kitchen table. I am very polite that way. I have showed no interest in toys but I love a peanut butter Kong every day! I am a very low energy guy who loves to lie out on the deck at my foster parents’ house while they are outside. If they go inside I have to go too. I like to be with people and because I lost my home I keep a close eye on my foster family. I cry when I can’t see my foster mom, but I think the longer I stay with her I will become more secure and know that she is coming back for me.

My foster family really loves me. What’s not to love — I am a love bug! I love to have my belly rubbed and give sloppy wet kisses. I would love a forever home where someone is home most of the day. Remember I am great with other dogs and all people! Last thing you should know about me is that I am heartworm positive. But please consider me anyway because it is not my fault that I have heartworms, and there are treatment options.

Do you know the song “Me and My Broken Heart” by Rixton? The song reminds me of myself: “All I need’s a little love in my life.” I have lots of love to give to you. Will you be the one to love me and give me the forever home I am so deserving of?
