I've found my furever family!

Hi! My Name Is Ty

We're happy to tell you that Ty has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

Hi there, my name is Ty and I am 3 years old. I'm a mixed breed boy. Maybe a mix of American Eskimo and Spitz. It's hard to guess because nobody knows my past history. One day, I was found outside all alone and I was wearing a leash with a poop container. Was someone walking me & I got away from them? Who knows but that's weird because I am a really good walker.

I'm in a foster home that has other dogs and cats. I am good with my furry friends but I prefer to be on my own. While the other dogs are playing or running around, I'm doing my own thing. It's not like I don't like the other dogs - I just like to do my own thing. My foster Mom calls me Mr. Independent.

I'm so glad my foster Mom is taking good care of me. The first stop after being picked by the Police as a stray was to the vet. I wish I had time for the test they gave me as I didn't do well on my test. That test is called a heart worm test and sadly, it came up positive. My foster Mom can explain what that is all about below.

I'm a quiet boy. I only bark when I am trying to tell you something. I bark when I have to go outside to go potty. I do a little dance by the door for a signal too. I sleep in my crate at nighttime and I'm my foster Moms alarm clock because I tell her "Get up" so I can go outside to do my business.

I hope one day I will have my own forever family and we can go for walks. At nighttime, I'll lay by your feet. I'm a quiet boy so I won't bark at you unless I have to do something. If you have kids - I love being around kids. I like all that fun petting they do. I have a thick furry coat, so I like to be petted.

Please don't let my heart worm status dissuade you from meeting me. Heart worm is treatable and I'm in good hands. I got good doggie doctors that are going to ensure I'll be ok. You just make the next move and contact my foster Mom for our playdate.



Ty is located in our foster home in Aurora. To meet this wonderful boy, please complete our adoption application at: https://treasuredanimalrescueinc.org/application-dog-adoption/

Ty's heart worm: Normally, a dog inflicted with heart worm goes through the "fast-kill method". Fast, meaning his treatment takes 3 months for the injections. Unfortunately, when Ty was neutered he came out of anesthesia with a reaction. Because of this reaction our vets are reluctant to inject imiticide 3 times.

However, there is another heart worm treatment called the "slow kill method" and for this Ty will get a monthly flea/tick/heart worm prevention for 9 months. Any questions regarding Ty's heart worm treatment please send an email to: info@treasuredanimalrescueinc.org. Ty's heart worm treatment is covered by Treasured Animal Rescue provided you go to one of our rescue affiliated vets.

Please note: heart worm is NOT contagious to other dogs. It involves a mosquito biting a dog that is not taking heart worm prevention (which was the case for Ty
