Tyson, a GSD x, was a dog that came from the Sunset Appeal in Ireland. They had had him for 4-5 mths and could not home him.

Day he arrived with me. He was a nervous wreck!

Within 1 week of being here he was homed by us to a lovely home.

He was a bit underweight and was having some issues with him legs due to a previous break and lack of muscle on his legs.

He has been in his home for a few months now and I have just received this email:

"Hi Chris

A couple of photos taken yesterday after the local village Scouts/Beavers held a Dog Show for Fun in the play field near us ,with a lady from Dog Borstal on TV - Lynne Davies who judged it . There were several categories to enter – Danielle & George chose

- Most Beautiful

- Animal the Judge would most like to take home

It was a lovely day , very sunny – Tyson was beside himself when he saw all the other dogs and decided to talk to them all and anyone else who was near – his tail almost wagged him in half .

When it came to the Most Beautiful – there were about 50 dogs ,many with pedigrees and owners who spent a lot of time etc – we could not find Tyson’s brush! Anyway the 2 lady judges passed up and down the rows and I thought they did not bother with Ty but they picked out 4 they liked and then awarded the prizes – 1st to Tyson because he was the sort of dog they liked not based on pedigree etc , I can assure you that they had not met him before and did not know his background .

Then at the end ,they had a best of show – Danielle had to go and collect Tyson from home and bring him along as she was keen for him to be there .There was 13 + dogs from all the sections – again the judges did not seem to look at him but he was picked out in the last 4 and they picked him – as Best in Show .Although it was only a fun event , many people who know him in the village were very pleased for him !

As you can see from the photos – there is a cup + ribbon and some bags of food .

He is a very knowing dog and loves people – everyone who meets him seems to like him even if they are not keen on dogs – his temperament has been brilliant .



Very Happy
