This is Tommy, a beagle mix. He was found & caught up at Pike Co. airport. He has obviously been previously abused, because he has a deep, almost panicky fear of people. He will not even come for the best treats (meat, cookies, etc.) He is very young, and still very "chewy". He likes rawhides, but will not take them from hand yet; they have to be tossed near him. He is doing fairly well with housetraining. Tommy will need a great deal of socialization with people, but he gets along with other dogs very well; his best friend is another foster, a 6 y.o. coonhound named Roscoe. He like to play with balls, squeaky toys, stuffed toys & plastic pop bottles (!). If you think you would be a good match for Tommy, and have time & patience to work with him, give us a call. UPDATE: tommy has made great progress in his 1-1/2 in rescue. he will now come up and take treats from his fosters hand and gets very excited when they come home. tommy absolutely LOVES playing with other dogs and we would love to find him a home with another playful doggie close to his size. he is always anxious when he sees a treat coming his way and will always watch your hands to see what you have for him! this boy would one day make a wonderful pet with some more love and patience. he has come so far, and all he needs a chance! if you would be interested in meeting tommy, please email mary at firstname.lastname@example.org or amanda at AROGERS0012@kctcs.edu Most of our dogs come from very high kill rural area shelters. Most have been neglected and/or abused, so please consider giving a loving new home to one of our wonderful pets...you will be repaid with years of love and devotion. TRANSPORT CAN LIKELY BE ARRANGED TO AN APPROVED HOME. Thanks for looking! I need a sponsor! If you can't adopt, please consider sponsoring a needy dog. For a small donation, you can help cover food and vet costs for these homeless animals!
Our dogs love to sleep on Kuranda Dog beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda dog bed
