TOMMY, Pet of the Month

November 01, 2010 By: admin Category: Pet of the Month

Hi there! My name is Tommy. I’m a 6-year-old boxer mix, neutered, and up to date on all of my vaccines!

Another shelter brought me to Animal Friends in September, and boy am I glad they did! I love all of the volunteers here and am very affectionate. I especially love when they take me on car rides to the park! The perfect day for me would include a car ride to the park where I could romp and play with lots of other dogs and chase the occasional chipmunk.

I’m pretty strong though, so Animal Friends would like to see me go home with a family that has older children, ages nine and above. I also love toys, especially rope ones. I could occupy myself all day just gnawing on a rope toy. I’ll need to go home with a family that can provide me with lots of exercise and stimulation. I hope you will stop in to meet with me and an adoption counselor if I sound like the dog for you!

I am a black and white domestic long haired cat with what a lot of pet people refer to as a “Groucho look.” I don’t know who this Groucho guy is, but apparently a lot of people think I look like him.

For a while there I thought I had found a permanent home. I lived with two adults and two children, and we all got along famously. However, as fate would have it, the younger child developed allergies to me, so here I am.

Although I enjoy the occasional catnip experience, for the most part I am a very shy girl. My best friend is Commet and I would really like to be adopted with him. My next family will have to be very patient with me because I take a fair amount of time with the “getting to know you” process. I have to say I’ll be worth the wait. After all, who wouldn’t like to have a Star in their home?
