Mama   Tig  has been in our foster home for a couple of months now, and she is very happy to get attention from anyone in the house. She is the official greeter of the teenagers when they wander out of their rooms. "I love this dog!" my son says, "She's always happy to see me." 
Mama   Tig  has two main expressions; Please, please pet me! and Oh, wow, they're petting me! This is heaven!!
She takes correction well, and has learned to leave the trash alone and stay away from the possum holes under the fence. 
My daughter is taking online classes, and  Mama   Tig  is there in the WebEx screen, making sure she gets plenty of attention, but unobtrusive enough that she doesn't get shooed out of the room. 
Mama   Tig  is having more bursts of energy than she did when we first started fostering her. She will sprint across the backyard in sheer joy, then come running back to me, smiling and excited. She's been well trained to sit and wait for attention, and even when she's excited, a quick hand motion will remind her of her manners. She is still calm and mellow most of the time, and doesn't run or get rowdy inside the house.



We think Mama would be best as only dog since we have not been able to find a suitable match  

Foster Home Update:  We really love Mama Tig. She became attached to us so quickly, and she just seems to be ready to love and be loved. She walks up to you and sits politely at your feet and turns her face up to you. You cannot resist petting her. She’s just a lovely cuddlebug. She is an escape artist! Her new parents are going to have to be very careful at the front door when entering or exiting!

Foster Home Update7/18/20:
 
Mama Tig is fully housetrained. I take her out regularly, but

if she ever needs to go out, she will let us know by whining

at the door. She loves toys, especially squeaky rubber toys.

She’s extremely gentle with everything she does, and she

will kiss your face if you let her. She also knows what she’s

doing wrong when you tell her no, such as going into a room

she’s not allowed, and she comes when called.
We’ve had Mama Tig in our house for a bit now, and we’ve

been able to see more of her personality. She’s very loving,

mellow, gentle. She melts like a puddle, slipping down to the

floor, when you pet her in an especially good spot, and she

teenage daughter’s hugs. In the house, she’s calm, docile,

and accommodating, right there if you want to snuggle and

watch tv, but just as content alone in her dog bed.

Occasionally, she gets in a playful mood and carries around

one of her squeaky toys, tossing it and squeaking it with her

mouth. She’ll chase it a couple of times if you squeak it and

throw it, but she’s not completely sold on the idea of giving

her toy back and would just as soon keep it and squeak it

herself!

 
She’s a good leash walker, and loves heading out the front

door, but she’s not the dog for someone who wants to take

long walks. She’s ready to head home after a block or two.

She pulls a little bit when we pass another dog or a squirrel,

and she chases squirrels up the trees in the backyard. 
Mama Tig is loving and gentle, calm and easy, with just

enough personality to make you laugh or marvel at her, but

not so much that you’ve got messes to clean! Her main

personality is mellow, but she does get excited—about toys,

walks, and charmingly, she gets excited at every reunion

with someone, even if it’s just that she’s been in the other

room for a couple of hours. Seeing her smiling face and

wagging tail greet you when you get back after hours or a 30

second walk to the mailbox is delightful. She will add so

much love to her forever family. Come and meet her, maybe

it will be you

Mama Tig is currently heartworm positive, but please do not let that shy you away from this wonderful dog!

Pet Rescue By Judy practices the slow kill method for treating heartworm, and we have had great success with it. The slow kill method means we give the infected dog a medication for 30 days (if you adopt within his first 30 days we will provide you with the medication) and then after that all she needs is her monthly heartworm preventative medication.
