Dogs Trust Shoreham dog of the week: Meet Tyler, a big bulldog cross with a sensitive side

Tyler may look big and bold but this seven-year-old, American bulldog cross has a sensitive side and will need new owners who will always be around.

Staff at Dogs Trust Shoreham say Tyler adores spending time with people, receiving a fuss and relaxing in their company.

They say he has a big heart and he is more than ready to settle into a forever home.

Tyler will need understanding owners who can allow him to take life at his own pace. He will need to be the only pet in a multiple-person household, so there is always someone there to keep him company.

The youngest members of his family should be aged at least 16 and there needs to be a private, enclosed garden, as well as a room for Tyler, where he can be shut away when visitors arrive.

Trainers at the rehoming centre said the new family will need to continue with training and confidence building. Tyler will also need help with his weight-loss journey.
