TIGR about Annie
Annie is a petite senior girl about 10 years old. She loves being in the same room as you but just doesn’t need to be on your lap or beside you to be content. She even prefers her doggie bed at the end of the mattress rather than being under the covers as does a typical Iggy.
Food motivated, kennels well but is very timid. That is another way of saying she is an extreme flight risk if frightened. Would probably do well in a quiet family setting with those who will be patient, loving and vigilant. She will return the love.
TIGR about Rigby
Rigby is a precious guy with so much love to offer. He is doing very well at becoming a more confident, less fearful guy. He will do well in a home with adult(s) that understand his needs and are willing to be patient and take the time with him.
He is eager to please, quick to learn and very mindful. Perhaps he would make a good agility dog; as he takes direction well, and this would be a great social and bonding experience for him. He also will do well in a home with at least one, confident and secure dog. He lacks the confidence and skills to make decisions and relies on others to show him the proper way to "experience" certain situations.
He is extremely happy, outgoing and loving. Enjoys rides in the car, going to the dog park
and long walks/jogs with his people.
TIGR about Sophia
Dezi is the most precious, loving, well-mannered being that I’ve had since I started fostering. Since the day we picked him up he has shown us nothing but love and affection even through all his pokes, scrapes, pinches and not to mention doses of medications. He is 100% crate trained and LOVES going in his “room” to cuddle up where he remains while I’m away from home. As far as I can tell (difficult with 7 doggies – accidents happen and if you don’t see then you don’t know who did it) he is also housebroken. I have never witnessed him doing anything in the house, other than joining in on a coffee table chewing incident (which was “gang related”..lol), that he should not. When I get home he is so happy he barks and jumps and is so full of glee to see me. He gets along GREAT with the other dogs and also is happy to play on his own. He definitely loves to cuddle! I can not say enough GREYT things about him. I tell him often that he is perfect and ask him to rub off on all my kids…lol…I am not sure how he is around cats and children.
