Additional info: Why haven't I been adopted yet?? Tommy!

Tommy is approx 3 yrs old , neutered and 25lbs! He was left at the shelter by his family and we really don’t know his history. He is afraid of new situations and is skittish around being touched at first. He has come a long way since being rescued. He’s housetrained. He LOVES toys and playing with other dogs! He’s learning to like the crate and will sleep in it with the door open! He's fine left alone at home while his foster mom goes out. He gets along with his foster dog brother and likes to play with him, so it would be nice for him to have a playmate. He is anxious in new situations and with outside situation. He also makes a great guard dog! He gets a bit excited and anxious when new people come into the home and when he sees other dogs and people while leashed, but he is working on that! He knows sit, down and come! He loves cheese, no really, especially string cheese! YUM! He needs an experienced dog owner who can be a strong leader for Tommy. He can be aggressive in certain situations, for example being touched by someone when he hasn't had time to trust them. So NO kids. Once he trusts you, he’s a love bug who is very loyal and sweet.
