Meet Tyke

Tyke is eight years young; he is a very low-maintenance little guy. In fact, much like some cats, he is very independent. He is crate-trained and learning to walk on a leash. He is nervous with new people and would do best in a home that can give him all of the time and patience to adjust at his own pace, without expecting too much from him too soon. Due to his initial unease, he would do best in a home without children. He is not recommended for first-time pet owners. He is very food-motivated and always gives you full attention when you have treats for him. As seen in one of his pictures, he will stand on his hind legs when you offer him treats! His previous owner passed away and Tyke was given to the grandchild, who could not take care of him due to an extremely full work schedule which would not have been the best for little Tyke. He was surrendered to us shortly after. His adoption fee is $150 which covers the cost of his neuter, all core vaccines (Rabies and 2 sets of Distemper/Parvo), deworming, microchip and microchip registration. If you’d like to meet Tyke, please read the following paragraphs which detail our application and adoption processes.

If this listing is still posted, we are still accepting applications for him/her. We do not do out-of-state adoptions on highly adoptable dogs; we would only consider out-of-state adoptions for dogs that prove hard-to-place locally. We cannot hold dogs, please submit your application when you are ready to adopt.

If you are interested in meeting any Poochmatch dog at our weekly adoption event on Saturdays at the Petsmart in Yorba Linda, CA (5521 Mirage St.) between 1-5 PM, please fill out an application from our website,, and return it via email to no later than 11 AM on Fridays. Upon receipt AND approval, the dog you are interested in meeting will be made available to meet on a Saturday. Due to the high volume of dogs and puppies in our foster homes, it is impossible to bring them all every Saturday. The only way to ensure that the dog that you are interested in will be at the adoption event is to FILL OUT AN APPLICATION AND BE APPROVED. Otherwise, we cannot guarantee that the dog you are interested in will be at our adoption event. If you cannot make the time frame of our events, appointments can be made at another time and location solely at the discretion of the foster parent. Please understand that private appointments will be coordinated to meet the convenience of the foster parent/transporter. We cannot hold dogs, please submit your application when you are ready to adopt.

All adoption fees cover the mandatory and non-negotiable spay/neuter, rabies, microchip, microchip registration, full sets of core vaccinations (rabies and 1 set of distemper/parvo for adults, 4 for puppies) and deworming. Adoption fees vary based on age, breed, size and the costs incurred on the dog's behalf by us i.e. medical, behavioral training, etc. and they range from $225-$495.
