Tiger is such a happy boy. If you're his friend, he'll be so excited to hang out with you that he'll play bow and do jumps in the air. But he's also such a calm, gentle boy that he won't jump on you at all. He'll just love to get your petting and brushing. And when you've brushed him, he'll roll around in the grass.

This sweet young boy is a little shy when first meeting people, but soon relaxes and lets them pet him. Now in foster care, he enjoys car rides and walks. He's an excellent leash walker, never pulling or reacting to dogs and people he sees. At home, he sees his foster's dogs across gates and fences and is comfortable with them. And he has shown no interest in their cat.

He's equally happy to go for walks and rides and also to chill out quietly at home. He enjoys spending time outdoors, sniffing the air, and then comes inside for naps and to hang out with his fosters, politely taking treats from them. He's house-trained and is excellent in his crate, sleeping overnight and doing well there when his fosters are away.

This easy going boy will be happy in most homes and will love parents who can teach him basic skills. He loves treats and so will be easy to train. He should have fun with a dog buddy and do well with a kitty housemate. He is heartworm poitive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet him. He'll be so happy to see you!

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
