FOSTER CARER UPDATE:
*currently in a home with a male Weimaraner in South Tamworth*
Tyga is a really sweet and affectionate girl. She loves spending time wherever we are and has settled into the routine very well. She hasn’t had an accident in the house and she is excellent in her kennel. She has been great on her walks, though we’ve been having to walk her at night because of the heat. She is confident and walks very well beside you. We rescued three chickens the other weekend and have had them in the yard and while she was interested at first, it was easy to break her attention. She now just ignores them though they are never out together at the same time. I have been using a long line on her to get used to them walking around her. She’s not overly interested but given her playful nature she would definitely chase one if given the opportunity. We had to take Bentley (her canine foster brother) to the vets last week (just a torn nail) and we took her along. She did very well with the dogs in the waiting room but was a little too interested in the cage of adoptable kitties in the reception area!
She is certainly an active dog – very playful, loves toys, and chasing Bentley. We have encountered some small bumps with her behaviour in taking things in the house – mostly shoes and clothing that she can get ahold of, she drags them into the yard. If I see her doing it I’ll say “ah-ah” and it’s about 50-50 if she listens. If she ignores me she’ll run off with the item playfully. I’ll try to exchange her with a toy/treat. She likes to chew and likes soft things.
She gets two Kongs per day and a walk in the evening plus playtime but I think she needs a walk in the morning and more mental activities. On last night’s walk I was doing some commands and trying her at “doggy parkour “ – basically getting her to stand on elevated things like big sandstone blocks at the park. She did really well and is a quick learner!
On your mark, get set, GO!
Pocket rocket Tyga is all about go go go! Don’t let this nearly 5yo fool you with her good looks and size, she is full of beans and has A LOT of love to give. From getting to know this bouncy lady, we feel Tyga would need a yard to play in and do zoom after zoom she has shown to be excitable on first meet with other dogs but calms after a short time. Tyga has shown to cope well on her own for short periods of time and would benefit in a home with no or teenage+ children, a yard ready for zoomies and part time workers. Tyga is available now on a foster to adopt basis at our Central Coast facility.
As well as being behaviourally assessed, TYGA has:
- a C5 vaccination
- been desexed
- been microchipped
- been intestinally wormed
- been heartworm tested
- had flea and heartworm prevention
- been LIFETIME REGISTERED (no need to register with your council – this is all done as part of the Lifetime Registration)
