Dog of the Week: Tigger

Tigger (A13062139) is a 4-year-old, chestnut/caramel colored shepherd mix. He was surrendered by his owners because they were moving and could not take him with them. Tigger is housebroken, up to date on shots and neutered. He has the most adorable ears….one straight up in the air, and one that flops forward.

He is always smiling and eager to please. He has the most adorable bounce to his step and looks like he’s prancing when he walks. He knows ‘sit,’ and is treat motivated, which will be very helpful in additional training.

Tigger met several dogs here at the shelter, some pushy, some shy and some dominant. He seemed to do fine in all meets and looked to play with each of them. Please be sure to bring your resident dog to meet Tigger before considering adopting or fostering him. Tigger is ready to go home today so come to ACCT and give this beautiful boy a new lease on life!

These animals are located at Philadelphia’s animal control shelter, ACCT. They need immediate adoption or foster care.
