Tiger was found wandering the streets when he was taken in by a family in Spring, TX just before Christmas 2006. He is up to date on his shots, is neutered, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative.
If you are looking for a watch dog forget about Tiger because he rarely barks (only barks when enticed or is super excited about the conversation).
If you are looking for a laid back couch potato who would like to be a lap dog then Tiger is your guy. He lives on the couch, unless there’s someone he can curl up next to. He always wants to be nearby where ever you are. When his family leaves the house and returns he’s always on the couch or otherwise on a chair.
He has never had the slightest apprehension towards the family's children (2 and 5 years old) coming up and hugging or chasing him around. . He is a great dog but his owners want a dog that will run/chase the kids with much more energy. He will, but they always outrun him and he’s not real interested in playing chase.
Tiger is housetrained and scratches the door to let you know he needs out. He has had very few accidents when left alone for several hours but they’re always on the carpet at the back door – indicating he knows where to go, and I hate to think of the panic preceding those accidents.
His owner says: “He does seem annoyed by our neighbors puppy lab (who’s about 40 lbs now) but is terrific with the mature mini-Dachshund across the street or other mature dogs he’s been exposed to including a 70 lb retriever. When we’re eating I tell him to “go lay down” and he immediately leaves the eating area and goes to the living room. He doesn’t attempt stairs, but will climb if heavily encouraged (all our bedrooms are upstairs so he sleeps on the couch downstairs)."
Tiger is on daily eyes drops to control his dry eye. He will need daily drops for the rest of his life. He is a terrific dog.
Tiger is located in Spring, Texas.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Margie.
Keep in mind
that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where
they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area
is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get
the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to
travel in the cabin with the passenger.
