TYSON – 3 year male. Tyson is such a sweet boy, full of kisses for everyone he meets. Tyson, who was relinquished by his family to Recycled Rotts, is housebroken and crate trained. He also knows basic obedience commands. Tyson gets along well with other dogs and would like to have another canine companion in his new home. Tyson would do best with children over the age of 5. He would enjoy a long fenced in yard where he can play and a new family to call his own – again.

TIERNEY – 18 month female.

From Tierney’s Foster Mom:   Tierney “T” has been in her foster home for 3 weeks and she has a long road ahead of her. She came in emaciated, filthy and afraid of her own shadow. She is leery of everyone and everything. After coaxing her out of the car with a cheeseburger trail from the garage to the house, she paced uncomfortably for the first two days. It was heartbreaking.

In this short time, she has put on some weight and shed her straw like coat to reveal a beautiful shiny black and rust coat. Even though we cannot get too close to her, she has proven to be quite the character. Her favorite past time is sneaking out of her crate to steal the throw pillows and anything else she can find along the way. She is not happy until her crate is full. Thank goodness she is only a hoarder, not a chewer.

Each day we push her a little more to acclimate to everyday life and she has proven that she is passive and increasingly curious. Her intense food motivation has helped her to come out of her shell a tiny bit each day. We are working on perfecting “come”, the only command she appears to recognize. She will not cross a threshold if someone is standing too close, but will take off out a door if left open a crack. We are still working on getting her used to a collar and leash as she takes off when approached. She is so afraid of most things, we have not been able to take her on a walk yet.

It is great to watch her alone in the backyard, you would never know the struggles she is going through. She runs around throwing her toys, sniffs around every corner, cools off in the shade, and sometimes basks in the sun. We can throw a toy, she will get excited and run after it, but once approached, the game is over. She wants to be a pup and play, but doesn’t know how and is not ready to trust. Last night I was allowed to really pet her, it was the first time she fully relaxed while being pet.

Tierney will require a lot of obedience training and socialization. She is crate trained, her crate is a necessity, her safe place. T will need a home with older children that are able to give her space during the transition.  As of today, no other animals in the house, she is especially petrified of dogs her size. She has a very high prey drive with all wildlife and will alert you of their presence with a loud carrying bark and howl to match. Tierney has met visitors, male and female, young and old – she does not like new people in her foster home, but will mind her manners and quiet down eventually. T is very intelligent and has so much potential waiting to be brought out.

Tierney is not quite ready for her furever home. When she is, she will need a committed family.  If anyone is interested in her though and would like to talk about her further, please either contact the rescue through our CONTACT FORM or fill out the application on our PLACEMENT PAGE.
