Tommy lived with people who had too many dogs and to little food. By the time he was rescued he was skin and bones and losing his hair. However, within a few weeks with good food and antibiotics he bounced back and is a happy loving little guy who loves to play with toys and other young dogs he’s fostered with. His favorite bed is a Costco box which is a luxury since he never had a bed before and slept on the dirt floor of the yard at his first home. He’s a bit shy but is loving and seeks human approval. What a sweet guy.
New foster says Tommy is a great, adorable, smart puppy. He’s perfectly housetrained, does pretty well on a leash, and is a very quick learner. He appears scared of other dogs, which causes him to fearfully bark at them, but is responding well to training out of this. He is very social, and loves to be around his people. He does whine a little when he’s not able to be around his people, like through a shut door. He is very, very smart, and picks up new tricks quickly. He loves to learn, and enjoys games, “find it” and the like. He responds well to being handled, and doesn’t mind his paws or face being touched, although he does mouth a little (he is still a puppy) — but is again, responding very well to training efforts to unlearn this. He is a medium-high energy dog, but with regular exercise and fetch, which he loves, he should be a-okay. He loves toys– squeaky, chew, bones, fluffy things, and especially balls. He is a very good boy, extremely food motivated, and would be an awesome pet for anyone. With a little loving guidance, he will make the perfect companion.
Tommy is doing super well in his foster home! It took him only about 2 days to warm up. Once he comes out of his shell, he is the cutest, most happy and sweet guy! He needs an experienced and patient dog owner who will be a leader for him. His aggression towards other dogs is completely out of fear, and can be helped significantly with proper training. Go Tommy!
