Tyson is a 10-year-old neutered male Labrador Retriever who possibly is mixed with some hound dog. In his previous home, Tyson was expected to be both a watchdog and a family pet, creating a confusion in him about how to act. He is very much the cuddly and affectionate dog that he appears to be in his pictures, but he also has a protective nature and is suspicious of strangers.
Quick to judge who he trusts or doesn't, you know where you stand with him right away. If he judges you trustworthy, and if you're dog-savvy and enjoy leisurely walks, please consider giving this boy a few happy senior years.
Tyson is quiet and housebroken. He enjoys treats, naps, attention and walks. Tyson has spent more than TWO years at the Stamford Animal Shelter and deserves a chance for a fuller life.
Tyson is 70 lbs. and 18" in shoulder height.
