LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The city of Henderson's animal shelter was looking for a home for an 18-year-old dog after his owner passed away.
According to the city of Henderson, the dog named Grandpa Tiger is believed to be 18 years old.
Tiger is a 19-pound, neutered male, Lhasapoo (Lhasa Apso - Miniature Poodle mix), the shelter said.
In a listing about Tiger, the shelter says he is a calm, but playful, elderly boy who enjoys being taken for walks. "He seems a bit shy and reserved in his kennel, but as soon as you get him on a leash he is super excited to go for a walk."
According to the shelter, Tiger was brought to them on Nov. 5 after his owner passed away and there was no contact available for any next of kin. A spokeswoman for the city of Henderson confirmed that Tiger was adopted at about 9:30 a.m. on Friday.
The shelter says Tiger is most likely hard of hearing, so not hearing you approach him startles him. He isn't a fan of being picked up and would rather just be left on the ground.
"Tiger will make a wonderful companion for someone who likes a little bit of exercise and a lot of couch time," the shelter says.
