After spending two years in kennels, Shih Tzu Tommy is hoping the New Year will see him in a quiet home with an experienced owner who can provide him with the love and companionship he deserves.
Tommy has been in RSPCA care for a total of two years and two months. He spent a year with Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home in 2016 before being rehomed. Sadly he arrived back at the centre in September 2018 and has now been paw-tiently waiting for the right home for over a year.
Ebony Poole said, “Poor little Tommy finds its very difficult to trust new people so he needs someone with a lot of time and patience to work with him on this. When he came to us he’d had no socialisation with other dogs so he needs a new home where he’ll be the only pet.
“He’s a quirky little chap and can sometimes have ‘small dog syndrome’ but he’s a wonderful dog with a huge personality and bags of character.”
Tommy needs to go to an adult-only household. He’s fully house trained and is happy being left home alone for short periods of time.
“Once Tommy gets to know you he has so much love to give and is desperate to please you,” Ebony added. “He’s becoming more and more confident every day. He’ll make a wonderful companion for the right person.
“We really hope 2020 is Tommy’s year – he really deserves it.”
