And now a few words from me:

Hello everyone! My name is Tyler (nickname Ty or TyBo) and I’m a 4 year old neutered black and tan dapple male doxie. I love everything and everybody. Life after the puppy mill is like a dream come true: lots of nutritious food, treats, fresh water, friendly siblings, tons of kisses, snuggle time, warm blankets and soft beds! Heaven on earth really…what more could I ask for except a family of my very own to share these new found treasures with.

I love to sleep in the big bed and cuddle with my humans. I tolerate a crate when left unattended but I do bark for a while at first. I also love to nap quietly in a dog bed beside foster mom when she works on the computer or snuggle with foster dad in his favourite chair while watching hockey.

Foster mom says that my puppy mill origin has not affected me in a negative way at all; I am not afraid of sudden movements or loud noises and I don’t shy away when someone reaches for me. However, I really dislike cold weather and deep snow but what respectable doxie doesn’t? Foster mom says that I would thrive in an active home because I race around here as if I was practicing for the Olympics. Hey, the Olympics start soon – have an extra seat on your couch for me?
