Old ‘Tiger’ Just Wants to Relax. Meet Billings’ Wet Nose Wednesday Dog
Does Fall make you feel like slowing down a little bit? Maybe easing back on the throttle as another year starts winding down? Us too. We think our featured Wet Nose Wednesday dog Tiger wants to spend a nice relaxing fall with you. We're pretty sure he likes pumpkin spice dog treats, casual strolls on a leafy path at Riverfront Park, and a cozy blanket on the couch at the end of the day.
Tiger is a nine-year-old mixed breed.
Tiger was surrendered to the shelter. Sad, right? Reportedly, he didn't get along with other dogs at his home. However, Derek Wulf, Humane Education Coordinator at Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter said Tiger gets along quite well with the other dogs at the shelter, adding that he enjoys playing and hasn't shown signs of aggression.
Older dogs need the love too.
At 9, Tiger still has plenty of life ahead of him. He's rebounding from an allergy (Wulf said when the dog first came to the shelter he was missing a patch of fur on his back), but otherwise he seems healthy for his age. We have an older dog at my house and I can't image letting him go to a shelter after spending over a decade with our family.
Name Your Price continues through the end of the month.
To help prevent overcrowding at the shelter, they're running a promotion where you can "Name Your Own Price" when adopting a dog or cat. Whatever you can afford. If you've been looking to adopt but the price was a barrier, now is a great opportunity to find your new furry friend. Wulf said the shelter is doing well on dogs at the moment, but that can change at any time. They currently have LOTS of cats. Browse all the animals currently up for adoption at Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter HERE.
The good news! Last week's featured dog Loki was quickly adopted. The bad news! Our dog from September 20th is still there. Check out Oscar HERE and see if he could be the right dog match for you. Can't adopt a pet right now, but want to help? The shelter is currently low on paper towels. Drop-off donations would be much appreciated.
