Tommy was a stray that was picked up at the Clackamas County Dog Services. The day I met him, I knew he was the dog for me. He was quiet, reserved and well mannered when I visited him at the shelter. The day I picked him up at the shelter to bring him home was QUITE another story. Once he got out of the shelter, he turned into a maniac the moment we went out the front door. The Vet told me that since he had just been fixed, that his testosterone would be very high for a few days and boy was he right. I’m quite sure Tommy didn’t sleep for two days, but after the effects of his surgery wore off he was for the most part, an ideal companion. He was the best dog I’ve ever had even though he wasn’t always a “good boy” and I miss him terribly but the time we had together was worth the pain I feel after loosing him to leukemia this November. I’ll never forget my Tommy Boy and I’ll miss him forever.

Tommy was a very sweet (and very rambunctious at times!) boy, so sorry to learn of his passing.
