Tommy is available for adoption
Sponsored by Karie A., in honor of her sweet Willy Roy! Who is a rescue that overcame all odds and really is the best dog!
A little love and patience goes a long way…
This is Tommy. Up until now, Tommy has had one use, breeding. At age 9, his owner decided they no longer has use for him and he’s been released to rescue for us to help. With a little love and patience, Tommy will come to learn that we’re not all like his past owner, but until then, baby steps.
The world is new to him, so he has a lot of learning to do. We don’t believe you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, so he learning all about house training, stair climbing, and adjusting to his foster mom’s loving touch.
He truly loves to be with other dogs, so we would like a home where Tommy can feel secure and part of the pack. This will also help him to follow by example. Tommy likes to lay near to his foster mom, but closer to his foster brothers and sister. He’s friendly but a little nervous of her reaching for him, so an adopter would need to understand his history and be willing to move slowly with him.
He’s friendly, happy even, despite the huge changes in his life.
His teeth were never cared for, he has only 3 remaining after his dental, so he will need soft (or softened) foods. He has never climbed stairs before, so he will need a chance to build up his climbing muscles. That being said, he loves the new found freedom of going wherever he wants to, so he loves to walk and wander around the house and explore. He’s quiet, doesn’t bark often, so he would be a good fit for a condo or apartment.
Tommy will make a wonderful companion for someone who wants a low maintenance dog. He’s simply happy to be just one of the dogs, happy to spend his days curled up with his fur siblings. He wants to take life at a slow pace and enjoy all the new things life has offered him.
