About the animal:

Tom is a handsome boy with a winning smile from Lake County Animal Care and Control. He was underweight, anxious and had a number of resolvable health issues when we adopted him which have all been taken care of. After a couple of months of good food, rest and health care he’s a healthy weight, his coat is shiny and he’s calm and happy. We need to surrender him because our other two dogs are very jealous and have attacked him a few times with increasing ferocity. Tom is crate trained and well behaved on a leash. He likes people and is friendly and sweet with everyone he meets. He’s a great companion and bonds easily. I don’t know how he is with cats or other animals. He’s submissive with my other dogs. When he meets other dogs he barks at them (he’s only met other dogs on leash when I’m around) but he’s wagging the whole time and seems to want to play. He’s a real doll and I so wish we could keep him. (please feel free to edit this)
