Yes. Tyler loves nothing more than playing with other dogs, both male and female. His excitement and exuberance can sometimes upset other dogs, so he needs to be monitored when meeting new friends in case someone else gets grumpy.
Tyler hasn't had much exposure to cats. Not out of the question, but recommend due caution if introducing him to one.
Yes however, Tyler has not been tested around small children. He can be overly boisterous when playing, and tends to jump up and occasionally ‘puppy’ nip. We recommend any kids be high school age or older.
Tyler can get restless if he isn't walked daily. He currently convinces his carers to play with him in the afternoons, which usually involves wrestling with tug toys and him being chased around the yard. When he's had a busy day (especially shared with other dogs) he's a perfect little angel and sleeps through the night. If you are time poor or have mobility issues Tyler will not be a good match.
How is this dog on a lead?
Tyler's current carers use a halti harness. Although he occasionally forgets himself when he gets excited, Tyler can walk with minimal pulling and responds to basic commands.
How is this dog off the lead?
As a pup it is normal that Tyler needs some work in this area as he loves being chased. However, he is making progress and this should continue with ongoing training.
He may take advantage of a gate inadvertently being left open and dash out on an adventure but he is not currently a ‘Houdini.’
Tyler is not currently a nuisance barker.
He would rather chew his toys and bones than furniture, but he may improvise if you don’t exercise him and don’t give him anything of his own.
Tolerance to being alone.
Tyler would prefer to have human company. However, once in the company of other dogs he doesn't seem to notice, or react, when his humans leave. Has yet to be left alone, even in the company of other dogs, for long periods. If you leave him totally alone for extended periods of time he will cry.
His favourite thing in the world is time with other dogs. Spending time with his favourite humans is a close second. Being chased and playing with tug toys are also top on the list. If you throw a toy he expects you to chase and get it off him. Tyler is food motivated, enjoys his walks and his own chew toys.
He tends to whinge during car travel.
The company of another dog and/or someone home more often than not would be ideal. Active families with older kids would also suit Tyler. He needs a secure medium to large yard so if you live in a unit or villa he won’t suit your circumstances.
Tyler is still a pup and will benefit by ongoing training, so folks who have experience with this breed would be preferable. His new family need enough time and energy to keep him mentally and physically stimulated and provide cuddles when he's tired.
Tyler will not suit homes where residents are frail, young, elderly, frail or time poor.
Tyler is intelligent, loyal and active. He is also easy to train. He can also be a little mischievous in an endearing way that makes him quite a loveable character. He loves to be chased and will sometimes steal things he knows he's not meant to have in order to instigate the game.
While he loves to play he is also extremely affectionate.
Tyler is not the type of dog who can amuse himself for long periods of time and prefers another dog or human company. Tyler is cute, silly, and has a zest for life. He loves everybody whether they are human or canine and gets ‘snuggly’ when he's ready to settle down and sleep.
