A volunteer writes: I met Tundra today what a handsome dog he is!!! He has such beautiful black fur and brown eyes. He was easy to take in and out of the kennel and was eager to go for a walk. Tundra seemed to like the other dogs he saw on his walk and enjoyed being pet and fussed over. Tundra is a bit on the skinny side and should definitely gain some weight. Tundra would do best with someone who has big dog experience. If you love Rottie’s/big dogs come to SIACC and meet Tundra!!
A shelter staff member writes: Tundra came to us as a happy pup and very friendly with staff and volunteers. He has kennel cough and needs immediate placement!

GOOD PROGNOSIS WITH APPROPRIATE TREATMENT
3/24/2015 Tundra came to us as a stray. The Assistant’s observations: Tundra seemed uncomfortable while placing a collar around his neck. He back away several times before being collared. During the assessment initially Tundra appeared calm, but not friendly. While conducting the “tag” (play) assessment item, Turn turned his body towards the Assessor on all three attempts to tag. While attempting the (paw) “squeeze item, Tundra laid down on the floor showing appeasement behavior. Although tundra allowed the Assessor to conduct the sensitivity assessment item, upon attempting the “tag” assessment item, Tundra was no longer comfortable being handled. For this reason the Assessor did not attempt a “flank squeeze”. When pushed away by the “assess-a-hand”, Tundra did lift his head from the food bowl (2nd attempt). Tundra did relinquish a toy (2nd attempt), and showed no interest for a rawhide. Tundra would not approach the helper dog. Although no aggressive behavior was noted, Tundra is not comfortable with handling for more than a few minutes. It is the recommendation of the Behavior Department Tundra may be adopted by an experienced owner with no children.
