Tigris is an energetic 3-year-old Border Collie-Retriever Mix. This sprightly fellow is a joy to be around, and would love to find a home with an active environment.
True to his breed, Tigris loves to be outdoors for his daily exercise. He likes to go for nice long walks or run around freely in a big fenced in yard. Tigris is a loyal dog and after playing outside will curl up for some one on one snuggle time with his favorite companion, could it be you?
If you're interested in adopting Tigris, please call 773-687-4712, email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by our new PAWS Chicago Adoption and Humane Center located at 1997 N. Clybourn Avenue.
