UPDATED 11 APRIL 2022
Tigger is a 4 year old galgo who came to SHUG with a leishmania infection. He has successfully been treated, but just like with Lyme disease, Leish can flare up later in life during times of stress. We recommend dogs with Leish get tested every year as part of their annual checkup.
In addition to his infection, Tigger also came to us with a badly broken tail and the tip had to amputated. Despite that, Tigger is now a happy, healthy, handsome boy who gets along with people and other dogs. He hasn't had the chance to meet any cats in person yet, but he's seen them through the fence and wasn't too interested. Tigger will respect a babygate in the house and has never attempted the 6ft chain link fence outside. We think he would be okay with a lower fence but would require close supervision at first.
Tigger's adoption fee is $650 and at this time we are regularly flying dogs into NY and Chicago. We also have the possibility of flying dogs into LA and Dallas, but that is less frequent.
NOTE: If Tigger is still listed as available, then he is still available. We are a 100% volunteer organization and most of us have regular "day jobs". Please do not email or call to ask if he's still available.
