Meet Tom

Tom is the ideal family pet, around 4 months old with a happy go lucky attitude, he sits on command is learning to drop and can wait for food. A smart little cookie he'll be easy to train to your routines. Now toilet trained and currently being crate trained for easy transport in the car I really can't fault this boy.

He is in foster care with another older dog and he plays well, is happy to go for walks and absolutely LOVES pats and cuddles. I have 3 children whom he adores. He seems to be good with cats too so if you already have a pet at home he should fit right in.

It is best if he's not left in the yard on his own all day, so a home with someone around during the day or part of the day would be great. If you do work fulltime then a home with another doggie friend will be ideal

He must be an inside/outside dog as he enjoys being part of everyday life with the family. Although obviously he is still to mature but I doubt he'll be a big dog, rather a medium to small medium size as (so far) he appears to have little short legs.

No definitive idea of any breeds in his boy as he was rescued from death row at the pound so we have no idea of his parents, he is just a lovely young x breed.
