My story

Breed: Mixed – DNA says Pitty/Am Staf/Rottweiler/Husky (they lied!)
DOB: 5/31/2021
Sex: Spayed female
Weight: 24 pounds

Fostered in Cedar Springs

Please meet Tigger. Tigger the jumping bean. Also commonly known at home as the spaz. This girls low speed is a good trot, mostly a run. There is always somewhere more fun to be, even if its the other side of the living room. We could not figure out what breeds Tigger was, so a DNA test was ran, and I think we got a different dogs results back (haha). Tigger is NOT a big dog, not even a Medium dog…but her top breeds are:  46% Pitty, 16% AmStaf, 10% Rottweiler and 8% Husky. They lie. They must! She’s SO little! Brindle with big adorable ears that we suppose could be pitty, and a bit of an underbite, but I just don't see it.
Tigger was raised in a shelter until she was 5 months old. One would think this would create a pretty tolerant dog, used to people and dogs and noises, but Tigger is none of those things unfortunately. She came to rescue because the people at the shelter couldn’t touch her. She was petrified of everyone. She came to us in the same way, but has really blossomed into a happy girl. Until company arrives. She will not let a stranger anywhere near her. No Way, No How. She has been getting better with company over, less stressed, less barking, but she will gladly go lay away from the commotion. This being said, she needs a quiet household, and most definitely no kids. The less people she has to ‘deal with’ the better. A single lady would be perfect for her! But that single lady really needs to have another confident and happy dog for her to play with. We had a wonderful lady try her for a few days and tigger was just as petrified as she was at the shelter, it was hearbreaking for the lady and the scarriest few days for Tigger, Tigger refused to even leave her crate. I had thought it would be great, but we now know that Tigger needs to follow the lead of a more confident dog. Without someone showing her 'the ropes' she just shuts down.
Tigger is really extremely sweet and loving at our house. She loves to get lovings up on the couch, she will roll right over for belly scratches and loves to be rubbed all over. But she isnt one to snuggle…once shes done getting your attention, she will find a more comfortable spot to nap, or a dog to play with, or something to chew on (preferably a dog toy, but not always).
Tigger took forever to fully potty train. Had to be from living in a kennel, but we have finally crossed the hurdle and can list her as potty trained. She doesn't know how to ask to go out, but if you watch her, she’ll RUN from door to door, that's her ‘signal’. If you are too slow she will have an accident, but she does want to do her business outside. At our house we just go out every couple of hours and that does the trick. Just have to be sure she potties and isn't just playing the entire time.
Tigger is still very much puppy, and needs to be crated when not supervised. She is GREAT in her crate, luckily., she really loves it! Even sleeps in it, next to the couch, for puppy naps with door open.
She thinks shoes, slippers, paper, trash, and especially your favorite hat are all dog toys. Even though the house is full of actual dog toys. She LOVES stuffed animals, more so, she loves gutting stuffed animals and trying to eat the fluff, then the squeakie, then the actual toy. Bones, Kongs and horns/antlers are her favorite to entertain herself.
Tigger also relies on other dogs to help her be brave. She definitely takes her ques from them. (other than people, because my dogs love company, she hasn't caught on yet). She would be best with a buddy to play. A multi dog home would be wonderful!
Shes great in the car and enjoys taking walks, as long as you don't mind getting tripped. We are working on heel, because she really isn't even confident enough to walk at the end of the lead, she walks right next to, or right in front of me.
She does OK with cats. Wont kill them, wont harm them, but would really enjoy a cat to gnaw on for fun. My male cat tolerates it and she ignores the other, unless its to chase them for a second. She is easily called off of them.
Tigger is doing OK with her commands. OK, but not super. She does sit and wait for an OK before she eats her dinner, and sits for treats, but “down” isn't her favorite thing to do. Shes working on COME, but it needs a lot of work still, and if you are willing, she will be a great dog…but obedience classes would shut her right down….so this will be something you would need to work on yourself. We are taking her to stores and she does surprisingly good, as long as no one wants to pet her. She sees strangers and doesn't bark, not even in the car.
RIght now she only trusts me, and sometimes daddy, but daddy can be scary at really random times.
Trust can work wonders with dogs like her. She needs to become more sure of herself in her own skin. In time, in the right home, I'm sure she will be awesome! We just have to convince HER of that!

 Please come meet her! I mean, she wont let you pet her! But come meet her! Please? Tigger says  “Maybe you can pet me when you take me home” which is hard for an adopter who wants to love and snuggle their new best friend. You may want to read up on Puppy Mill dogs. She isn't one, but she sure shows like one.
