Tommy - A Petfinder Happy Tail

From Renee of Doylestown, PA
About a year and a half ago my mom and I went to a Meet and Greet through Almost Home Dog Rescue. We currently had two dogs at home but my mom had found one she wanted to "rescue" on Petfinder.com and it said his shelter would be hosting a meet and greet, so off we went one rainy Saturday.
When we arrived at the location of the meet and greet we looked all around for "Buddy" the shepard mix my mom wanted to rescue, but Buddy was not there that day... Tommy was though.
Tommy, the 1 year old Catahoula/Whippet Mix, whom was dropped of in a box at a shelter in the south one night. Tommy, the shy, timid, scrawny looking pup with a bum leg.
I immediately connected with him, noticing how he limped and had a disability, my heart sunk... I knew then that I had to have this dog. My mom on the other hand, was not convinced that this was "the one" we should adopt. After speaking with his Foster parent, we learned that Tommy was very well trained, loved treats and was overall pretty well behaved.
So we scheduled a time for a house visit, and introduction to the two dogs we had living at home, and if all went well, he was ours!
Well fast forward a bit, and I am lucky enough to call myself the proud owner and rescuer of Tommy, who has blossomed into a wonder dog. He's everything you could ask for in a dog. I know that people say this all the time but I am truly blessed to have him in my life. He's taught me so much about myself, and our bond is unbreakable.
