Meet Tyson. Just look at that goofy smile! And did we mention that he likes to sleep completely on his back, belly in the air?

Tyson is part of the Lycoming County SPCA's Fantasy Furball adoption promotion. He's been drafted as the Tight End on Team Dogs. You can check out more information here ( And the way he is with a ball, he would be a great member to add to YOUR team!

Tyson came to the SCPA back in July from a pretty tough situation. Like most shepherds, he was a true guarder from food to people. But as time went on, his personality started to shine. He loves to be outside, is curious about things, and openly seeks attention. Once you get toys out, he runs and plays and entertains himself. He's made strides in obedience: he knows sit, shake, and other paw.

We do feel that since his guarding is quite high and he had to fight for everything before, that he needs to be placed as an only pet in a home that has experience with shepherds.

Tyson just celebrated his 5th birthday at the SPCA and we think the best birthday present would be a forever home! Don't you agree? Tyson's available for a good game of fetch in kennel 62.
