ROCKLAND COUNTY -- "Tiger" is the Hi Tor Animal Center's Pet of the Week, and is looking for a good home to be adopted.
He is an 8-year-old male Terrier/Chihuahua mix who was surrendered to the shelter because his owner got sick and could no longer take care of him. He is sweet and gentle but was in need of a little TLC- his nails were overgrown, he's a bit overweight and he's almost completely blind. He had limited time walking on a leash or being outside.
At the shelter Tiger has experienced walking out on the grass for the first time and relishes it, stopping every few feet to roll around in it.Tiger does well with all dogs, cats and kids. The fact that he's almost completely blind does not stop this little man from living life to the fullest. He loves nothing more then just laying by your side while you pet him.
Tiger would do well in a less active home and would do well with another dog in the house. Tiger is thriving in his foster home with another dog but needs a permanent home to call his own. Please take a closer look at this little fellow to see exactly why everyone loves him.
