Hartford CT: Heartbreaking plea from 16-year old girl

8-9-12:  URGENT UPDATE:  Poor little Tyson's temporary foster person is being evicted and once again, he is in an urgent situation. Please network for this precious boy who only wants to play ball, share a cuddle and have a soft bed. 

Tyson is patiently waiting just to play ball with someone.

 We received a very “different” call the other day from a 16 year old girl who needed to rehome her beloved 4 year old Pit Bull named Tyson. She and her mom have been in “hiding” for 2 years now from her dad who physically abused both of them and Tyson....

They have been on the waiting list for an apartment for these 2 years. In the meantime, Tyson has been staying with her Uncle in what she thought was a great home. Sadly, she found differently a few nights ago when she made a “surprise” visit and found Tyson locked in a cage in the basement. Her Uncle finally confessed that Tyson spends the majority of his time in the cage because her Uncle “just doesn’t have time for 3 dogs”.

She broke down in tears as she thought about how Tyson listens to the other dogs playing upstairs while he sits in his dirty cage all day . This is a girl who truly loves her dog…just can’t have him for her safety and his. She then began asking questions like “do you screen people”? “Do you do home visits?” “Would you ever bring him to a shelter?”  These are questions that grown adults don’t even care to ask, let alone a kid. Of course she would love to have Tyson back one day but she understood finding a long term foster is almost impossible and stated that if a good home came along, she would want Tyson to have it. He is good with other dogs and has lived with cats his whole life. He is vaccinated and will be neutered soon!

We just found out that Tyson is now in a very temporary foster, but this person's dogs do not like him, so we need to continue trying to find him a safe, secure and loving enironment before he gives up.  He deserves this and so does his sweet little mama.

TYSON NEEDS YOUR HELP AND SO DOES THIS LITTLE GIRL…she has had to grow up way to quickly
