New year new home: Tigger from SNAP-2IT

See also

Every day there are thousands of homeless pets in shelters in metro Atlanta who all have the same wish - a forever home. They are dreaming of waking up in a home where they are loved and cherished and are a member of the family. As we start the new year and throughout the month of January, I will be featuring pets from local shelters and rescue groups who want nothing more than their very own human and a warm place to sleep at night.

Today’s featured pet is Tigger from SNAP-2IT. Tigger is approximately two years old. Here is more about Tigger from the SNAP-2IT website:

My name is Tigger because I look like a Tigger and I act like a Tigger, even though I’m a puppy. I bounce and run and play — but I can’t really talk. Who needs words when you have a striking brindled coat, expressive dark eyes, white socks on two feet, and a tail that curls like there’s no tomorrow?

I weigh 54 pounds, and may be a greyhound or boxer or Great Dane mix, but I don’t know because I don’t remember my parents. I have very long legs and am really ‘cut’, as you can see in my pictures. The ladies really take to me.

I am fully vetted, including being neutered (ugh!) and I am happy to say – heartworm negative (Yeh!). I know how to sit when asked to and know to wait to go outside when its time — if you know what I mean.
My favorite time (besides eating) is curling up next to this human who saved me. I love all kinds of dogs and people and am told that I get attached quickly and am ALL puppy. Throw the ball and watch me run. I would love to meet you so you can see just how cool I really am. It is probably best that I have a yard with a six foot fence, because I can bounce pretty high.

Send an email to or call SNAP at 404.957.6914 to set up a play date with Tigger so he can make you fall in love with him. You can also apply to adopt Tigger on the website.
