Meet Tiger, a handsome 5 year old orange belton who is a bundle of love. He is a complete lover boy that wants to be in your lap or by your side at all times. He wants to be sure that you know how much he loves you and will persistently ask you to bestow all the attention you can on him. 

Overall Tiger is calm, mellow boy. He is past the energetic puppy years and leads a quiet life in the house. He does like to give a few good warning barks if he spots someone coming up to the door or the mailman is making a delivery.  When entering the home, all visitors to the house are met with tail wags and sloppy kisses, after all he IS the lover boy.  When outside, Tiger likes to show off his air scenting skills, enough that it leaves his foster family wondering what he smells that is so fascinating. He does love the periodic squirrel and bird chase across the yard, but otherwise prefers the slower pace of smelling and watching the world. Walks are a big treat for him and he is ready to go when you pull the leash out. He has been a doing a good job at learning to walk alongside his foster family with his foster siblings. 

Tiger is familiar with his basic obedience commands and has good recall from outside.  He has good manners at feeding time and is used to sharing food with his sister.  Because there are several dogs in his foster home, Tiger is learning to sit patiently for his meal and eat only out of his own bowl. Tiger is also doing a great job learning other rules of his foster home, such as asking before climbing onto the couch (or your lap) and sleeping on his own dog bed at night.  He’s adjusting well, but he would definitely prefer to share the family bed if allowed in his forever home. If he finds a spot on the bed he likes (because we all give in at some point), he will play dead when you try to move him out of the way and will find some magical way to double his weight and physically attach himself to the bed. Sometimes a firm voice and a strong nudge is needed to encourage movement in the direction of his own dog bed.

Tiger has adjusted to living in a bigger pack, after spending years with just his sister Lilly.  He was used to pushing her around a bit, but has now learned that he cannot be the center of attention and that every dog gets has to share the love equally in the household. Tiger would be best suited to either an only dog home or to a home with an easy-going dog.  Tiger is also prone to chasing and stalking the cat in his foster home.  Even though Tiger is not out to hurt the cat, he would be best in a cat-free home.

Tiger is a perfect combination of lover boy and gentleman.
