ST. CATHARINES – Tyson the German shepherd is in a much-improved state, according to a report released Wednesday from the Lincoln County Humane Society.

On Jan. 23, a Lincoln County Humane Society officer picked up an injured dog after it was found wandering on Kaye Street, in Thorold.

The dog, a male German shepherd that appeared to be about a year old had obvious trauma and was immediately transported to a St. Catharines veterinarian.

Late Wednesday morning, during an investigation, LCHS officers determined the female who called the LCHS to report the dog was in fact the mother of the owner and both females conspired to lie to the Humane Society about ‘Tyson.’

The attack suffered by Tyson was inflicted on him by other dogs in the home. 

The investigation is now focusing on whether or not charges will be laid and what those charges might be.

“We are happy for Tyson’s sake that he was helped when he needed it and we look forward to finding him a new forever home,” said Kevin Strooband, LCHS executive director.

The LCHS also wishes to thank the public for its ongoing support of Tyson and for all of the well wishes.

Meanwhile, Tyson is available for adoption and the LCHS is accepting applications at until Friday, Feb. 7 at 3 p.m.
