Ty the adorable rescue

By Marco Holden Jeffery

Ty is used to getting stopped every five minutes for a picture and a pat, so the 11-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/terrier cross is a natural poser.

He gives himself up for the camera like it’s second nature when Docklands News met him on Harbour Esplanade in late June.

Alex Matthews rescued Ty a few years ago. The pup was living with other dogs who would gang up on him, and his owner would come home to find Ty bleeding or hiding somewhere in the house.

Alex, who works in health insurance, knew the owners and offered to take the poor pup into his Docklands home - and has never looked back from his new life with sweet Ty.

Alex said Ty had an “amazing” temperament and was “the perfect sort of dog to have in an apartment” - good-natured, well-trained, never did anything wrong inside and was the perfect size for apartment living.

Ty is an older dog, and according to Alex he could be a bit bossy. “He definitely runs the roost,” Alex said.

But above all he’s very friendly - always happy to stop for a pat and have his picture taken •
