Meet Tonto

Please read his whole profile to learn about his special adoption requirements. Tonto came to us after his owner's dementia meant that she could no longer care for him. Tyson's Place Animal Rescue's mission is to assist terminally ill people with finding new families for their pets, Tonto is a friendly 9 year old guy, quick will a tail wag and happy to see his people. He is housebroken, though like many older dogs, he can't "hold" it as long as a younger dog and needs potty breaks throughout the day. He walks great on a leash and loves snoozing on the bed with you at night. He is a vocal guy and has a full range of grumbles and noises as part of his talking. His favorite activity is finding a comfy spot to take a cat nap. Speaking of cats, he also has successfully lived with cats and shows little interest in their activities. Though he has never lived with other dogs, he has had limited interactions without issues.

Tonto, like many Westies, has skin/food allergies. When Tonto came into our rescue, his allergy issues were out of control - ears so infected they were filled with pus, a scabby, raw and red body that itched him terribly. Despite his considerable level of pain, he remains a happy-go-lucky guy, We are getting Tonto back on a prescription food and an allergy prescription, along with medicated baths, and think within a month he should be back on track to living a comfortable life and be ready for adoption.

We are only considering applicants who are ready and able to take care of a dog that will have lifelong allergy issues. What does this mean? He will require a prescription food lifelong, a daily allergy prescription lifelong, and weekly medicated baths and ear cleanings by his adopter. He will also require more vet visits than a normal dog in order to treat and maintain his allergies. With proper maintenance, Tonto should be able to live a normal and pain-free life with he can be happy and healthy and thrive. He had complete blood work that indicates he is healthy.
