Stray #8 of the 12 Strays of Christmas is Tyler. He is a spry, social guy who will happily hang out on your lap or go exploring. He loves people and tends to be super silly and playful with other dogs. A 3-year-old Terrier mix, Tyler is a wiry 13-and-a-half pounds of pure fun, which is another way of saying that he would benefit from a good obedience class, learning new skills along with a refresher on house training.

After a little stint hanging out in our foster office, shelter staff can already tell that Tyler is going to be a great companion for some lucky family. He would love daily walks and a nice hike with his people. He’s ready to be part of the pack or the lone star dog, so don’t hesitate to come and take him for a brisk walk and see if his personality is right for you.

You can visit Tyler (#37336448) at the Idaho Humane Society, 4775 Dorman Street. They're open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Friday and close early Saturday, Christmas Eve, and be closed Sunday, Christmas Day.
