We are in Rochester, NY, we adopt to people who live in the Rochester area. We do not ship our dogs and require home visits. Must live in area to adopt, will not respond to out of area/country requests. This dog requires a physically fenced yard that must be in place at time of home visit.

Have you ever seen anything cuter than this 6 month old lab-basset mix named Tom?! We haven’t either! I mean, just look at that face!! Tom’s foster says he is an amazing dog!!

Tom came to us from South Carolina and is looking for a family to call his own. This little guy is as smart as he is cute. He already comes when you call him, knows sit, and will sit and wait for his food. Speaking of food, like most labs, he is incredibly food motivated. This will make it easier to teach him even more! Tom is housebroken and crate trained, though he is also trustworthy when left out. At night he will sleep quietly and soundly in a dog bed next to your bed.

Tom is a great mix of playful and mellow. He loves toys and will keep you laughing when he tosses them in the air for himself. He likes to chase after balls in the yard and is working on learning to bring them back. He enjoys going for walks and is making progress with his leash skills, though he does still need some more work there. He loves to play with other dogs, and is respectful when they give cues that they are done. When he’s not playing, he will happily curl up on the couch with his head in your lap for some snuggles. He is very affectionate and loves to be near people soaking up all the pets!

Tom has gotten along with every dog he’s met. He is good with kids but does lightly mouth when he’s excited. He’s making excellent progress and a quick firm “no” seems to do the trick. He hasn’t met a cat yet, but we expect he would be very curious.

If you are looking for a sweet, wiggly, funny, easygoing dog to add to your family, Tom is definitely worth meeting!! Please submit an application to:
An application must be filled out to meet any of our dogs, to apply go to so foster can contact you. We do not have a shelter, dogs are in foster homes.
