ADOPTED: Meet Tigger, a 4 year old Red Merle Australian Shepherd Male who is a small Standard weighing in at 30 pounds. He is up to date on all his shots, neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped. Tigger is a medium energy guy.
Tigger is good left alone, he will play by himself or with his foster-brother all day. He also seems to careless about the cats at the farm. He rides great in a car and has played and interacted with small children, 2 years old and up with almost no issue, but monitored. Tigger is very Velcro and has been one of the foster’s best behaved and loving guys to date.
While Tigger sounds like the perfect dog, there is a reason he was turned into our rescue. He will let his foster comb, bath and mess with any part of his body. But when he is at the vets, well he is not that loving, 30 pound friendly Aussie. Per the vet, “Tigger went from a 30 pound lover to an 80 pound monster that required sedation” for his neutering. This is the only aggression we saw. He does seem to want to be pack leader of his 4 legged pals sometimes. Tigger is a very confident and strong personality in an little Aussie body.
If you feel Tigger might be a match for your family and would like to be considered for him adopting you, please complete the application today! Tigger is currently in the Southern Illinois area near St. Louis.
