Tyke is a 16-year-old Chinese Crested Powderpuff. He had been surrendered to rescue for the second time. I had been looking for an older dog to add to my family of three senior Chinese Crested Hairless dogs. I was very touched by Tyke's picture, and by the fact that he was in rescue at such an old age. I knew he was what I was looking for.
The rescue told me that Tyke had been surrendered to them the first time at age 13. The couple had gotten Tyke as a puppy. They recently had children, and Tyke was having potty problems. The rescue placed Tyke with a new family, but the couple just recently divorced and decided that they couldn't keep him.
I have only had Tyke for a short time; however, I am just in love with this happy, energetic "old man." He is such a sweet, funny little dog. I am so happy to have him in my life.
