    ..... No worries... I don't mean Cricket.

    Meet Tiger. He is a 3 year old amazing dog listed as a pit mix. He had a foster home lined up for him, but that fell through so he has been hanging out at my work temporarily until we can find him a home. I'm seriously building up an attachment to this dog and I wish I could take him home. Unfortunately the odds are stacked against me since another male in the house with Bamm is not a great idea and even still we can't have a third dog until we are in a new place.

    Tiger is a great guy. He is absolutely beautiful and these cellphone pics don't do him any deserved justice. I constantly swoon when I see him. He is great around other dogs as far ad I've seen. Some dogs at work have snarked right in his face and he hasn't reacted the least. He is knowingly good with cats, kids, horses, bunnies, pigs and chickens.

    He is not fully house trained since whoever owned him before kept him outside, but he is a fast learner and I think he would catch on in no time. He also has issues being crated when there are other dogs loose around him, mainly because he wants to be near the other dogs. He did break out of a wire crate at his foster house which is why that foster situation fell through. We have been crating him in an airline crate with no issues.

    He can be rowdy and playful, but most of the time he seems mellowed and inquisitive. That could change depending on whatever environment he is placed in. He definitely loves people.

    He is not currently neutered, but he will be neutered prior to going to his new home.

    Please let me know if any of you are interested in this guy. If there's anything you want him tested around I can go ahead and do so. Transport can be arranged to a degree for the right home and I'm sure if a Chazzer ends up with him transport won't be an issue.

    I love this guy and I think he would be perfect for a chazzer home... I would take him in a heartbeat if I could. He has a way of pulling your heart strings.

    And now for pics

    Any luck finding this guy a home? He is lovely

    I've found that videos seem to really help (helps people kind of get a "feel" of a dog through a screen more than pictures can).. maybe you could get a short video with your camera or phone? of him doing simple tricks, just being cute, getting loved on?

    ^^agree with Fran

    I know the cat rescue near me does videos and since they started they have gotten a lot more inquires on the animals they have. Showing him playing, running around or enjoying a good petting would really allow people to see his personality and fall in love quicker than pics alone.

    We haven't found him a home yet. My friend Nicole put up a Craigslist ad for him to see if she can get some people interested. She will be picky about who he goes to. If anyone on here is seriously interested in him I really would rather him end up in a chazzer home.

    Here's his ad which tells you a little more about him. Let me know if he pulls your heartstrings. The sooner we can find him a home, the sooner another dog can be pulled from the kill shelter. I'm already planning to see if I can help out financially with the next rescue. I help take care of Tiger though so I know quite a bit about his personality firsthand which is why I can totally see him as a Chaz dog.

    I'm sorry I should have updated this thread. He actually found a home a few weeks ago. There is actually another dog that my friend is fostering that may be looking for a home soon. She is still being evaluated and is really shy, but when she is ready to be adopted I'll post her on the forum as well.
