Tigger, age 3 to 4, is a recent transfer from Utah. Tigger was found near St. George, stuck in a coyote trap. He was nursed back to health at a shelter, and neutered and healed when he was adopted to a woman with children. He did well with her kids, and the woman loved him, but they had to return him to the shelter when her circumstances changed.
Tigger’s former guardian said that he would “eat the walls” if left alone, so he may need some help with separation anxiety. He has not displayed that behavior at the Meridian shelter, however. He might have issues with certain other dogs, either big or small. Tigger might be selective and likely will need help with slow introductions. Tigger is calm and friendly with everyone he meets, though can be shy at first. Tigger’s ears are very yeasty, but he tolerates cleaning and treatment like a champ. He rides in a car and walks on a leash well.
