His family, people watching, strangers, &making new friends, both dog&human.
he goes crazy at the beach.
sit, shake, lay down, & stay. (Proudly, all with handgestures)
The original owners' dogs had boxer puppies. They gave away the white ones and sold the brown ones. My friend decided to take Tyson home. But his dad didn't let them keep Tyson because they had just recently adopted a German Shepard and thought they wouldn't be able to handle two big puppies. I happened to be at the right place at the right time.
My parents didn't believe that i would be coming home with a dog. i didn't either. we've never had a big dog before, the last dog we'd own was probably 5years ago. so we were rusty at training.I took Tyson in with full responsibility.
Growing up, I thought that Tyson was just a bit slow at learning. 6 months, and my puppy still doesn't respond to his name. I thought he was a late learner because my two bestfriends who just so happened to have adopted dogs at the same time had told me that their dogs respond when called (Siberian husky& husky-German Shepard). I did a few research and learned that most white boxers are born deaf. Did a few tests like alarms going off, screaming from a distance, yelling from behind, etc. But nothing. Brought it upon my family and I could see how their faces grew sad. Not out of disappointment, but because of how bad they for him. We knew that no matter what, deaf or not, we still love Tyson the same.
Nothing will ever change that.
Tyson is just like any other dog, except instead of words, I use hand gestures. Instead of calling him back to me at the park, I wave him down. He growls and barks at strangers, and he barely turned 1 (which I heard was good, for a boxer since they're so friendly. Esp. This one). I know that when he gets older, he will be an excellent guardian that will protect us.
