Meet Tigger, a 4-year-old American Bulldog and Pitbull Terrier Mix. Most would describe Tigger as “pretty laid back” even though he came from a very upsetting past.
Tigger was surrendered by a family member from a family who has been keeping him as an outdoor dog, giving him only access to a dog house. Tigger has never felt the warmth and love of a real home and family. When I hear stories like this I truly wonder why people like this would even want a dog in the first place. Poor Tigger, like so many others, deserves so much better than what he has been given.
Tigger’s former family reports that he is friendly with children and accepting of strangers, but does not like cats. While Tigger did show a bit of food aggression during breakfast and dinner, he gets along with other dogs just fine. An owner who has time and patience is needed to work with Tigger on his food issue, especially if there are other dogs in the household.
Tigger is known to walk well on a leash, is very dedicated to his games of fetch, and had never attempted to escape the yard at his former home. He will however need to learn house manners since he has never had to learn them before. Patience, training and consistency will be key in making this boy the perfect furry family member.
Tigger deserves a chance at a real home and family to call his own! Won’t you please consider stepping up to help this handsome boy? At the very least, I ask that you share to help find that special someone who can make Tiggers dream come true. Help me help Tigger get noticed and into a loving home!
For more information about this terrific boy please stop by the shelter or reach out and contact them directly.
