Thomas was abandoned - left alone, scared, and tied to a fence. Strangers meant nothing to this sweet boy who had his life turned upside down suddenly. He was well taken care of, so why this happened we don't know, but we do know that at some point he was loved. It's our turn to show him that he will never be abandoned again, and that there are good people who he can trust and who will love him and give him the safety he needs. Thomas is resilient and has come out of his scared shell to show us that he is a total goofball and love.
Thomas thinks he is a lap dog, and we have to remind him at times that he is 50lbs. He is young, maybe less than a year. He has it all - brains, good looks, and a sweet personality. He is beautiful, and would make the ideal running partner! He is an active boy, but not hyper, and he loves enjoying the fresh air. This boy would do great with an active family, and once he gets to know you he is nothing but love and affection.
