Meet Tommy

Tommy is a very happy and sweet boy. Ever since he got into his temporary foster home, his tail has not stopped wagging! We do not know much about this boy's past other than he was brought in as a stray, but we can tell he used to have a home as he is a very good boy!

Tommy is a friendly pup and loves the company of people and other dogs. He is potty trained, walks well on a leash, and is working on crate training. He willingly goes into his crate to rest during the day and settles down at night, but he prefers to be in your bed (or under!) if he had a choice! He gets the most excited about going outside and his current foster family takes him on 3-4 walks a day. Tommy loves to follow around his roommate (another doodle mix) and is always down to play. He is learning to respect boundaries from his roommate and is doing a great job so far. If his roommate allows it, Tommy will snuggle next to him during rest time.

Although Tommy came from the streets, he has shown no signs of resource guarding or aggression to other humans or dogs. His foster figured out that he sometimes doesn't like to be picked up/moved and will let you know by his demeanor change.

Tommy is a very special boy who has a lot of love to give and is ready to receive love in a forever home. Within the first 2 days of having him, he has been very affectionate to both humans and dogs. Tommy cuddles are simply the best and melts our hearts.

Tommy does have a few ailments that will need to be managed. He has a heart condition which is currently being managed through medication. We try to keep his heart rate down by resting after a long walk or play, but so far, he's been living a normal dog life at his foster! In addition, he doesn't have the best teeth - but the great news is that he doesn't have bad breath!! He has about 6ish teeth which means he gets treated to all the yummy soft foods. Tommy is also suffering from bad allergies, so we are working on the best treatment plan. His current foster family has removed chicken from his diet to see if it helps his tear stains.

Tommy is just the happiest little guy, and nothing brings him down. In the short amount of time his foster has had him, he has brought them so much joy. He will make a loving addition to his new family, and his foster family cannot wait to get to know him more over the next couple of weeks.

Tommy's current foster family will be out of town for 3 weeks, so we need to find him a new foster or adoption by then (July 9)! Due to his ailments, he will do best in a home and not the shelter. If he cannot find a more permanent foster/adoption during this time, his current foster will love to bring him back into their homes after vacation as they enjoy having him so much
