After Years Of Being Locked In A Crate, This Dog Is Finally Free To Roam

Ty’s family kept him locked up in a crate all day and all night because he was destroying things in their home. They were unsure how to handle him, so they decided to surrender him to the RSPCA, in hopes that they could find him a more suitable home.

Animal collection officer Cara Gibbon went out to Ty’s home to get him and brought him to the RSPCA’s Coventry, Nuneaton and District Branch shelter. When she arrived, she could see that Ty had a lot of energy and was going a little stir-crazy from being kept in a crate for so long. She decided to let him have a little fun before bringing him to the shelter.

“This poor boy was confined to a crate 24/7,” Gibbon said in a press release. “I took him down to the dog run at the rehoming center so he could run free.”

The moment Gibbon let Ty off of his leash and into the dog run…

…he went crazy, and could not have been happier to finally be free to run, play and just be himself.

“He looked really happy and his tail was wagging nineteen to the dozen,” Gibbon said. “It was lovely to see him enjoying the freedom and fresh air.”

Ty took full advantage of the outside world, he played in the leaves…

…and just had the best time ever. The 7-year-old dog acted just like a puppy again and seemed grateful to finally have some space to run around.

Ty is doing wonderfully at the shelter, and staffers are confident that he’ll be ready to find a new home very soon.

“Hopefully we’ll be able to find him the paw-fect home where he’ll be able to run, explore and play games with his new garden — and where he’ll never be locked in a cage again,” Gibbon said.
