New Dog in the House

Tyke is an 8-month-old male Pointer/Beagle mix who was given away by his previous owners. He weighs only 31 pounds, but is quite leggy and has a docked tail. Tyke is very affectionate, has an easygoing disposition, and he loves to lay next to people as though he were a lapdog. We are fostering Tyke through Planned Pethood, a group that rescues and provides homes for unwanted dogs and cats.

Tyke is a very friendly, sweet puppy who is good with other dogs and adores children. He rides well in the car, although he hadn’t ridden in one since 8 weeks of age, and he is learning how to walk appropriately on a leash. We are working on getting Tyke housebroken; he currently is successful doing his business outdoors about 80 percent of the time. If you are interested in Tyke, please follow this link to Planned Pethood and fill out an application.

For those of you thinking about getting a dog, please consider adopting a rescue pooch. Every resuce dog we have taken in has been good-tempered and loveable (though some dogs might not yet be housebroken). For more information on adopting rescue dogs, see The Toledo Area Humane Society, Planned Pethood, or Petfinder.com.

Mike - Tyke is adorable. I hope someone can give him a permanent home and love him. He's just way too sweet.
