Cyrus is a happy, playful young Texas Heeler who is ready for adoption! He is 8 months old, a great weight at 32 pounds, and he has a very nice-looking black and white coat with lots of ticking. We have only had Cyrus in our rescue for a couple of weeks, and he is almost housebroken, he is crate-trained, and he is just starting to learn his basic obedience commands. His leash-walking skills are improving every day and he is a great passenger in the car.
Cyrus absolutely loves people – what a sweetheart! This medium Velcro young guy loves to be with his humans but he will not get underfoot. Cyrus is also a medium energy boy who loves other dogs. He is such a fun guy – he loves to run and play with other dogs, walk and hike with his human family, and then settle in for an evening of pets and belly scratches. Cyrus will chase cats just because he can, not because he wants to hurt them!
The ideal family for Cyrus is loving and active. They also recognize that a young guy like Cyrus has amazing potential, and additional training is important so that he can be the best Cyrus ever! A fenced yard and another playful young dog would be ideal, and any children in the home should be at least 12 years of age. We are ready to help Cyrus move on to his best new life, and if you are a great match please visit our website, www.sohodogrescue.org, for our application and a description of our adoption process. Cyrus is fostered near Richmond, VA.
Cyrus's adoption donation is $300.
