NOTE: Tommy is currently with his foster in Toronto.
Tommy was found roaming the streets in an apartment complex, and was sent to a city pound. He was eventually scheduled for euthanasia when no one claimed him, but was luckily saved just in time. He lived with a foster family in Korea before flying to Canada to find his forever home.
We believe Tommy might have been someone’s pet, but was abandoned because he was aging. He has a sweet and friendly personality, and loves to snuggle with his humans. He is good with other dogs and enjoys going for walks. Tommy is a happy boy as long as he gets to spend time with his people.
Tommy is in good health overall. He has nuclear sclerosis in his right eye – a bluish, transparent or cloudy haze that develops in the lens of the eye for middle aged to senior dogs. This is considered a normal part of aging, and is NOT the same as cataracts. The condition currently does not affect his vision. He does not require any treatment or medication.
Recent x-rays have showed no issues with his hips or joints. However, he has a slight limp in his back leg from degenerative joint disease. He currently does not display signs of pain, but his condition should be monitored. As a result, his adopter should be cautious of overfeeding or weight gain to avoid further stress on his joints. He should also remain active, but participate in only low impact exercises.
Tommy is a very loving boy looking for a home to spend his golden years. He would make a wonderful companion to a senior, or someone looking for a companion who does not have high exercise needs. He would love a home where his people have time to spend time with him and include him in their activities.
The adoption fee for Tommy is $260CAD.
DHPPL, Canine Influenza, Kennel Cough, Rabies, Corona, Heartworm test, Giardia test, Flea & tick & heartworm prevention are all done.
