Facts about Tigger

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Tigger is a Pit Bull Terrier-mix, male, 2 years of age.

With his well-muscled physique and handsomely brindled coat, this is one great-looking dog who is going to elicit lots of attention! Animated, playful, social, fun-loving, extremely affectionate and loyal with an endearingly sweet disposition, he’s also a happy-go-lucky, friendly, and wholly sincere canine boy who will form a heartfelt bond with loving owners who reciprocate the warmth and devotion he offers. Tigger yearns for his forever family – one he will want to shower with love… prepare for snuggles and doggie kisses galore! A darling delightful dog having an effervescent personality, he is all about being part of a close-knit, inclusive “pack”. Steadfast and true, once he entrusts you with his heart, this engaging charmer is playing for keeps and his lifelong love and loyalty will be unshakable –Tigger, of course, asks for nothing less in return.

Neither fawning, nor demanding, Tigger requires a confident, responsible, and caring owner, with prior dog experience, who will provide clear rules and boundaries---consistently followed by all family members--- from the get go. Tigger may push limits and take liberties if he senses novice or weak leadership. His success, then, lies with this assertive---never harsh---leader who provides structure and guidance in a firm, consistent, fair, and very kind way. Like all dogs, Tigger needs the sense of security which comes with rules, boundaries, and routine . . . knowing what to expect and what is expected of him.

Training and Socialization Classes are highly recommended for this intelligent boy who learns quickly and is eager to please when he knows what is expected. This will be a great way for Tigger’s owner to establish a trust bond with him as well as reinforce good canine manners. The teaching/learning exchange between owner and dog can be a catalyst for deep-bonding, and in a loving, companionable soul such as Tigger, it is even more so. Tigger’s gratitude to the rescuing family who provides for these needs will be abundantly clear by the lifelong, loyal devotion he’ll offer.

Like all dogs, Tigger needs regular physical activity and mental stimulation to stay happy and healthy. Leashed walks, interactive play sessions, obedience training, and adventurous outings alongside his adored family members will meet most of this guy’s fairly modest exercise needs. Add a securely, fenced yard where he can romp and explore on his own and with “his” people – total bonus!

Tigger is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.

Come meet Tigger at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

For more information you can email or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.

Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.

Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.

In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting a dog or cat from the shelter: We adopt on a first come, first serve basis. You must come into the shelter and fill out an adoption application and put down a $10 non-refundable application fee to secure your spot for adoption. Currently the cost for adopting a shelter animal is $35. $10 is a non-refundable application fee, $25 is collected for the spay/neuter portion of the contract. Adopters sign a contract agreeing to have the dog/cat spayed or neutered within 30 days. We are currently offering a Voucher at the time of adoption. The voucher covers the cost of the spay/neuter surgery. There are 9 area Veterinarians that are participating in this program and the surgery must be done at one of these vets.

If you rent and want to adopt, before we start the adoption process, you must come in with a letter from your Landlord, with a copy of their picture ID, stating you may have an animal in your house. If you own or rent a mobile home or live in an Apartment complex, we must have a letter on the parks letterhead from the manager stating you can have an animal in your home.
