Well hi there. I am Tiger. I am a extra-large mixed breed and am about a year and a half old. Staff here have grown really fond of me and tell me that I am a special boy. When I asked them why, they told me that although I am big boy, I am very fearful of new people. I react by crawling into the lap of my favorite two legged companions like a dog the size of the chihuahua would, looking to them for guidance. I have been working with staff here to gain my confidence around new people. We have found that a big confidence booster for me is dogs. I love dogs of any size, shape, color, gender.. doesn't matter to me.. if it's a dog I LOVE IT! They help to reassure me that the world around me isn't as big and scary as I think. With that said, I need to live with another canine in my future home. My future adopters would need to have patience to work with me while I transition. I have a heart of gold. With some gentle loving, I will be your best friend. If you're interested in being my friend, please call PARL or email Stephanie the dog coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org .
