Tiger is a 1 y/o brindle terrier mix. With the eyes of a tiger, he will surely melt your heart! Tiger was someone's pet before, but he was surrendered when his humans had to move. He is a super fun and playful guy! He would be great for an active family that loves to take hikes. After a long hike, Tiger is exhausted and would just like to cuddle up and take a nap!
Tiger has shown us that he prefers to go potty outside, which may mean he's housetrained but could use a refresher when he goes to his forever home. He loves having his back scratched and he has shown eagerness to interact with other dogs and politely greets them! Tiger knows some cool tricks already, such as sit and drop-it! He also listens very well to corrections and is super smart, so further obedience training shouldn't be too difficult.
Tiger is part of the Pen Pal program which means he has his own special volunteer that spends time working with him to make him more adoptable! If you're interested in adopting or fostering Tiger or have any other questions, don't hesitate to email his PenPal Becca at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring any family dogs and children down to meet Tiger to make sure he'd be the perfect newest member of your family!
