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 came to the SCPA back in July from a pretty tough situation. He and his canine brother had been abandoned in a car when their owners went to prison. He came confused and scared, but as time went on, his personality began 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. He has a particular fondness for squeaky toys and being on his back, often combining the two together. He's such a big, happy goofball.

Tyson was part of the Lycoming County SPCA's Fantasy Furball adoption promotion. He was 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!

He has also joined our Freedom Runners program, where volunteers take shelter dogs for car rides and long walks with other dogs. He does very well! He continues to train and work on his obedience with our staff and volunteers. He also enjoys his downtime, snuggling with volunteers in the reading room (with a good squeaky bone, of course).

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 63.
