Tigger in Tennessee needs a home

Tigger, aptly named after the character in Winnie the Pooh, is a bouncy, happy, and young brindle basenji puppy who is estimated to be approximately seven-months-old.

We hope to place her with a family within driving distance of Chattanooga, TN.

We picked up Tigger in Jacksboro, Tennessee three weeks ago. She had been dropped off at a boarding kennel after she was found running loose. The kennel kept her for two months and then called BRAT.

Tigger has a very sweet nature. She is good with other dogs and very loving towards her people. Although she is wary of strangers, Tigger warms up quickly and loves to lay on the couch with her people.

She has been going to doggie day care several times a week to maintain her dog socialization skills. Tigger is crate trained and almost completely house trained. We don't know how she is with cats, however she seems to have a high prey drive.

Tigger wants (needs) a home with another socialized active and playful dog playmate (preferably Basenji). Tigger can also be nippy with people she doesn't know, so will be placed only in a home with older dog-savvy children. She is physically located in the Chattanooga Tennessee area and the family that is interested in her will need to be able to meet her.

We have grown to love this very sweet girl and had hoped to keep her. However, our resident basenji, Arrow, told us that at almost eleven years of age, he wanted to remain an only dog.

  1. Just came across this old blog. After five weeks, Arrow decided that Tigger was tolerable. After five months, he decided he liked her. Now they are good buddies and do the Basenji 500 every day!
