UPDATE: Tyla is listed as having a “reserve” on her, but she isn’t safe yet. Please continue to share her story until she is safely out of the building.
Tyla is one extremely smart and sensitive ten-month-old puppy at New York City Animal Care and Control. Dumped by her family when they moved on May 17, the pit bull and border collie mix was so heartbroken, the staff and volunteers sadly watched as she slowly curled up in her assigned kennel with her back to the door and her nose buried in the corner.
Now Tyla, through no fault of her own, is scheduled to die on Tuesday.
The dog’s pet profile reveals she has lived with an 11-year-old child, another dog, and a cat although she is afraid of strangers and will bark. She has no reported behavioral issues; take away her food bowl, toys or treats – she is fine. Tyla is used to baths, toenail trimming and is a playful and friendly puppy.
Tyla is well house trained and enjoyed her walk with the volunteer:
“…we had a wonderful glimpse of what she is like in a home when, after a long walk in the park, she threw herself down on the grass to scratch her back. The walk boosted her spirits enough that when she got back into her kennel, she still lay against the back wall–but this time, with her beautiful, gentle visage facing out. We can only imagine how she will blossom in her new forever home…”
According to her evaluation at the shelter, it is recommended that Tyla be adopted by an experienced dog person since she appeared very stressed when handled, although she showed no aggressive behavior. Perhaps Tyla doesn’t do well in a noisy animal shelter with strangers poking and other dogs coming at her for no reason?
