For a New Family to Know
He was described as a friendly and affectionate dog. He played fetch along with his sister. They follow the previous owner around the house. His favorite toys were balls and he was kept mostly indoors. He knew “sit, come, stay and down” on command. He pulled lightly on the leash.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Potential challenges: Fearful
Potential challenges comments:
Tiger is a bit timid in the care center, moving slowly and cautiously. He would do best with a slow approach, preferably with treats, and being spoken to in a soft, gentle voice. Tiger should never be forced to submit to handling or petting when he is uncomfortable.
