  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

John Coleman is used to having passers-by stop him on the street in 'little puddles of sentiment' commenting on how cute his 'puppy is', to which he replies, 'Tiger is not a puppy, he is three years old.'

Almost approaching his fourth birthday, Tiger, is one of the rare German shepherd's with Dwarfism, a rare genetic disorder found in dogs when both parents carry the dwarf gene.

While he is cute as a button, my heart aches for his aggressiveness. It's good that he's got owners who are loving and care for him so much. People don't think about much when they decide to breed dogs beyond making some extra money.

That is really poor breeding, I hope they didn't breed the parents again.  Best to adopt shelter dog.  IMO

This little dwarf German shepherd is aggressive due to the dog's equivelent of short man syndrome.
