Tommy is a real family dog, just loves his kids. He can also be protective of "his" kids so he needs to learn boundaries and tolerance for others who come into the home. We think Tommy would really benefit from some socializing in dog training groups and meet-ups.
Tommy was brought into the Merced County shelter as a stray a few months ago. You may not know this, but dogs don't usually last that long in shelters when they don't get adopted. But extra super special wonderful dogs like Tommy get reprieve after reprieve because of the pleading of shelter staff who love them. Such is the case with Tommy and so they reached out to find a foster for him. They were right, he is a wonderful boy!
Tommy is neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. He is crate and house trained.
