Thom’s Story

History:  Thom came from a local animal control facility..

About:  Thom is learning everything about urban life as he is being fostered in the River North neighborhood.  His foster mom takes him just about everywhere she can, restaurants, bars, nail salons, and even on the train!  Sometimes he walks, sometimes he rides in a backpack. Either way he is just happy to get to go along with! While Thom wasn’t initially sure of all these activities, he just needed a few minutes to get comfortable with each of them and then he is very comfortable and content. Even riding in the car seems to have been a bit new for him, but now that he is used to it he loves going for rides.  Thom loves to sit out on the 20th floor balcony of his foster home. Thom hasn’t had one accident in his foster home and he also has shown himself trust worthy enough to begin being allowed out of his crate while no one is home. Thom’s foster parents are helping him learn great manners as he is allowed on the couch and the bed, but he knows it is an “invite only” situation. Thom loves every person and every dog he has met both big and small.  His foster mom feels that he will fit into just about any home, as long as they want to include him in whatever they do. Like to hang out and watch TV at home? Thom is game. Like to go out and explore? Thom is game for that too! He has a nice medium to low energy level where he enjoys playing with other dogs and going on walks, but he loves to come home and sprawl out on his back with all four paws in the air for a good nap.
