Foster Home Feedback

5/21/2020: I have had Tyke for almost two weeks now and he has been a fantastic addition to my home. If you are looking for a snuggle buddy, Tyke is your guy!

He does pretty well on his leash, but he is easily distracted by all the fun things to smell. Tyke handles running into other dogs really well - he is able to calmly walk by them even if they are barking. He has gotten many comments on how well behaved he is.

I haven't tested him out with other people beyond the people we meet on our walks. He can (rarely) growl and lunge when new people approach him, and he will hide behind me if there is a large group. Tyke is the friendliest dog once he warms up to you, but it may take some time. I would recommend that he not go to a home with younger children as he can lunge when he is startled and he doesn't always realize his strength. I hope that Tyke can go to a home that can make him feel comfortable and safe, and that will have the patience for his quirks! 

Tyke is potty trained and crate trained. I leave him out at night and he sleeps quietly (aside from occasional, adorable snoring) on his bed. 

4/22/2020: Tyke is such a sweetheart, who’s favorite things to do are going for walks and cuddling with his humans. Once we get back from a walk he will jump up on the couch and nap until he’s ready to go again!

We have had absolutely no accidents and he hardly ever barks! The only time we’ve heard Tyke bark is when he meets men, so slow introductions would be best with new people (especially guys). Once he realizes that they will give him lots of pets, he loves them and warms up quickly.  He would do best in a home where there isn't a lot of people coming and going. He also loves the company of other dogs and would love to have a dog buddy to show him that people are not scary. Tyke is an awesome dog who just wants lots of love! 

4/10/2020 Volunteer Feedback: Tyke just came to the rescue today, and I've spent a bit of time today getting to know him.  He is a super sweet boy; very well mannered, affectionate, and kind of goofy!  He knows how to sit, although he is very treat motivated so he can't sit still for too long before he starts getting wiggly because he wants the treat!  He met both of my dogs and did great with them. He likes to play but is also content just to follow them around.  I took Tyke and my two dogs for a walk - he is great on a leash! He sometimes pulled a bit if he really wanted to sniff something, but he by no means was dragging me around. 

Tyke seems kennel trained and potty trained. I met him at our facility early this morning and hung out with him for a bit. I left for about 4 hours and came back. He went into his kennel fine when I left, and it was clean when I got back. I had put a blanket and some bones in his kennel and when I returned, the blanket was still intact and it appeared he had kept busy chewing on the bone! He waited to do his business once we got outside.  We are still getting to know this handsome fella, and will hopefully get him into a foster home soon to learn more about him. Check back for more feedback soon!
