Tigger

This handsome man is Tigger. He is about a 1.5 years old and is about 55 to 60 lbs (he was wiggly so was hard to get a final weight). He is very friendly with everything and everyone he meets, he just doesn’t know his size, so he will knock small kids over. He is nervous around men, and does have a pretty beefy sounding bark, but once introduced he is just as playful as a pup. He is house trained and crate trained. He will go into his crate on command, but he is an escape artist and knows how to open them so we do recommend a high impact or industrial steel crate. On walks, he does still pull a little and gets a one track mind when he us focused on something,  it is hard to redirect him so it is still a work in progress. (He’s a pup really that has had no formal training or anyone to care about him, so any progress is progress in our book – plus he’s treat motivated so we’ll get there!) His foster parents have not seen any sign of aggression at all, whether with food, toys, people, or other animals. They also have a cat and he has gone up to it, sniffed her, and then walked away. He does get very excited when someone comes home, he will jump up and does get “mouthy” but our trainer has given some great new tips to help with this. He is highly food motivated. He has learned sit, come (with no distractions), down, and bed. He loves to play, he will chase a toy, but has not learned the return concept yet. He has recently learned the joy of tug a war. He also like chew toys, but must have power chewer toys, he loves antlers – esp elk antlers. He loves to sit on the couch and just snuggle up to whoever is there. He doesn’t like to be left alone, so he would do best with another dog. If you think Tigger is right for you, send in your application today!!
