HTZ Hounds: Adoptable Dog of the Week – TomTom

received_551829719103094

Hey HTZ Nation, hope all is well and you’re continuing to work towards flattening the curve. Also, if the warm weather could arrive with some regularity, that’d be nice. There are dog’s ready for summer, like TomTom, our HTZ Hounds Adoptable Dog of the Week. 

            TomTom is a 1-year-old hound mix currently in foster care with Niagara Dog Rescue. He is medium sized and enjoys giving kisses, and getting belly rubs. Like most hounds, he has a high prey drive, which means he needs house with NO cats or small animals to chase. He is however great with kids, and after proper introduction gets along with other dogs as well. 

            TomTom will need a strong and assertive owner who will continue to work with him. He is still pretty young, so he will need to keep working on his leash manners. When on his leash, he can be reactive to other dogs, cyclists and some men. He is making progress on this, and is looking for the right owner to keep up with his training. 

 

            TomTom does take some time to warm up to strangers, but once he does, you’ll be the centre of his universe. TomTom would love to have a home with a backyard to play in. He is pretty active and if he is anything like my own hound mix, will love to play fetch for hours if you let him! Honestly, he is incredibly cute and has an infectious smile. His fosters rave about him, but they know he is overdue for a family to call his own. Is TomTom sounding like your kind of pooch? Read more about  him here and fill out an application here.

            In addition, thank you to all those who have purchased plants (via plantables.ca; “NDR2020” at checkout to support) or arranged to have empties picked up by Niagara Dog Rescue, your contributions go towards dogs in need. When this pandemic ends and the borders open back up, their will be plenty of dogs in need of your support and your homes. Your contributions help animals now and down the road. 

 

            Once again, THANK YOU to all the Veterinarians, Vet Technicians, Fosters, Animal Shelter workers and Volunteers, and anyone else working amid Covid-19 to keep animals happy, healthy and safe. Take Care!
