Meet Tigress

Meet Tigress! Her birthday is around 11/18/2019 and her DNA test came back as a Pit Bull/German Shorthaired Pointer mix. Tigress is a shy dog. She warms up with cuddles and pets. She is a quiet girl that needs a calm home. She was adopted and returned because the adopters health is failing. She is still timid and also not accustomed to going potty outside. We need a miracle adopter for this girl. If you have ever wanted to help an animal in need and have a great home for Tigress, apply today!

After Tigress was surrendered, we received this information in an email:

Tigress is actually a beautiful dog with a loving heart, but a very shy, and probably scared personality, for whatever reason. She has resided with a woman living alone, and in her late 70's, with health issues. She lived with her for 17 months. It took a while to bring out the loving components of this dog but the owner felt it was worth it. She is not house broken as the owner couldn't keep up any training. She also barks a lot and loudly. She could benefit living with someone living alone, probably on a quiet road, with no cars or people to bark at. She does seem to bond with one person, though she did tolerate quite well both men and women, and treats were very helpful in winning her approval. I was frequently at her residence and early on, I thought she had "nipped" at me. I have since learned she did this same thing to someone else and we figured out she was 'grabbing' at your sleeve or pants leg to try to get you to stay (we were getting up to leave at the time) and perhaps to get more treats. She sounds aggressive when you enter but it seems more 'protective' in nature as she never bites or attacks anyone, including paramedics when they come in to take the owner to the hospital.

She really really could benefit from some professional gentle training to help with her current habits and skittishness and a good length of time to be comfortable with a new owner. We do not know how well she tolerates children.

She is young and could be a wonderful companion for someone for many years if given the right owner, a chance to develop trust, and some training.
Her owner loved her and was heartbroken to surrender her back to the shelter.
