What kind of home would be best for me: I am a man of schedule! I love when things make sense every day and will pencil in time for spontaneity especially if it involves a car rides with the wind blowing through my luscious hair. I would appreciate a home with a very active family. I am my best self when I can run free in a fenced yard and go on long walks with my person. I love to use my smeller so I think I would like to try out scent work. No matter what you have in mind as long as it involves chicken jerky, you can count me in! Because of my fascination for food I need to be in a home that does not free feed, I will eat myself sick and have no regrets about it.
Boyd is good with other dogs and with children. He has never lived with cats.
What is my personality like: When you first meet Boyd, you might assume he is a timid boy. Of course, like most pups he just needs a little time to get to know you and then he will adjust accordingly. We used to call him pancake man until his personality broke free.
He knows that his kennel is a good thing and until he adjusts he will spend a lot of time in it willingly. This will pass and then he will constantly be at/on your feet. He is learning that being picked up is not all bad but it will take more time than any other training you implement. He is different with every one when is comes to being picked up but never aggressive. He likes to make him self as stiff as possible and that’s as far as it goes.
Boyd is highly active and needs lots of physical and mental stimulation on a daily basis. When he is out in the yard he spends his time scouting spots to make a good roll, so he will need someone who does not mind giving daily wipe downs and weekly baths.
Boyd loves a good rope toy and when he wants to play with you he will throw it at you. He is very outspoken and loves to share his opinion with any one that will listen. This guy is very smart. He learns quickly and will need to be taught some manners, which will be no issue with the right treats in hand. Being that he is so vivacious he needs a pal at home to play with him and plenty of space to play in.
Boyd plays and loves with his mouth and to some people it can be a bit much. The best way we have found to reduce this behavior is to let him run it out before encouraging him to play with you, using your hands. He is also learning “no touch” so he can be calmed, when he gets too excited.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly but careful, but if a really like you I get ants in my pants.
Tips and Tidbits: Boyd Tinsley was found as a stray. His history is completely unknown. His estimated birthday is 1/9/2019. This is a guess based on his overall health and condition.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
