Why Does Nobody Want One-eyed Tyson?
RSPCA staff and volunteers in Buckinghamshire are desperately trying to find the paw-fect home for a one-eyed dog who is their loneliest pooch.
Tyson has been waiting for a home for 295 days (as of Thursday) and, despite having a small fan club online, still hasn’t found his perfect match.
As the five-year-old rottweiler-cross approaches his 300-day milestone, staff are doing all they can to find him a home to call his own.
Paula Flitney, deputy manager at RSPCA Blackberry Farm, where Tyson is currently living, said: “Poor Tyson is now officially our longest stay dog.
“We really can’t understand why he continues to be overlooked as he’s such a wonderful boy. How many dogs could pull off the pirate look?!”
Tyson ended up in RSPCA care in May last year after a cat scratched his eye. He needed treatment and, sadly, had to have the eye removed. But he has bounced back and isn’t letting a missing eye slow him down!
“He is such a sweetheart and will make a brilliant companion for the right person,” Paula added.
“Tyson loves a cuddle and is quite happy plodding around the field and going for a calm walk. He is happy to be left on his own for short periods and could live with older children and with a calm female dog, but can’t live with cats.
“Tyson is a lovely dog who is very special to everyone at the centre. He’s been waiting far too long for a home.”
