Tommy-ADOPTED!

Tommy is a 10-11 month-old Mountain Cur/Beagle mix neutered male and one very happy dog in spite of having had a rough puppyhood. He came into a KY shelter with his twin sister Tina several months ago. Tina made the trip to Canine Lifeline in March and was adopted very quickly. Tommy stayed behind in a foster home as he had what appeared to be an old injury to one of his back legs. An x-ray revealed that he had a badly broken bone in one of his back legs which had healed on its own. Thinking that amputation would be required, Tommy made the trip to Canine Lifeline in May so that he could get the medical attention he needed. Upon review of the x-rays and examination of Tommy, the vet concluded that Tommy’s leg had healed sufficiently well that amputation was not advised. Tommy uses that leg very well and if you didn’t know he had an old injury, it’s even hard to tell that the leg was broken previously. With that good news, Tommy is now ready to find himself a great new home. This sweet dog loves other dogs, people, and playing with toys. When you first meet him, he comes on like a house afire and is super excited and energetic. He settles down nicely though after a few minutes. Tommy has had excellent crate manners in his foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. He’s excited to go for a walk so using a harness on him makes leash walking him an enjoyable experience. Tommy’s eager to make up for lost time and start having lots of fun adventures with his new family. He weighs about 33 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
