Meet Tilson. Tilson is at first a shy boy but once he feels comfortable he really comes to life!

He is a sweet boy good with other dogs he has met and appears to be OK with the smaller animals in his foster home.

He is good with kids in a very happy way, however is a little bouncy so small kids need to be dog savvy.

He is a quiet boy and is working very hard at his housekeeping skills and has come a pretty long way since getting here last week.

He rides nice in the car and has enjoyed the company of every person he has met.

Tilson is a short stocky guy only standing about 3 feet tall, but weighs around 50 lbs.
