Tiger is a mischievous charmer, that's for sure. When asked to sit, he likes to put himself directly on your foot. Isn't that adorable?

Another adorable thing about Tiger is that he loves to hold a tennis ball in his mouth during training sessions. Tiger's Big Sister tells us that when she looks into his eyes what she "hears" is "I'm mostly sugar, with a dash of spice!" She finds him strikingly beautiful, smart and happy. 

He's been a tiny bit skittish with loud noises and might do best in a low traffic household. He doesn't seem to react to other dogs and has not been observed with cats or children.

Tiger is a smart cookie and is learning at a rapid pace. He enjoys giving surprise kisses and will ask for lots of belly rubs.

In addition to all of Tiger's wonderful natural qualities, he has been working hard to be a dog you can take anywhere with pride. Tiger has been working on his Canine Good Citizen skills with APA staff and volunteers. To pass the American Kennel Club's CGC test (and be considered CGC-ready by APA), a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations. An APA CGC-ready dog knows sit and down, walks nicely on leash, will sit calmly when you are approached by strangers or another dog, won't approach people or dogs without permission, stays in sit or down until told "free," and comes when called. This training is very connected to your dog's relationship with you, so regardless of where Tiger is in this training program at the time of adoption, APA will work with you to help you establish this relationship and keep the training going.
