Hi, my name is Tom I think I am around 8 months old. I weigh in around 55 lbs and I am a very handsome chocolate male Lab. I was rescued from Tennessee with my brother, Sawyer. Get it… Tom & Sawyer! I am such a softy and love to snuggle. If you are sitting down, don’t be surprised if I try to sit on your lap and lick your face or start snoring as I fall asleep in your lap. I love to be outdoors. I especially love water. I am potty trained and a quick learner.I currently live in house with two girl’s ages 10 and 12 and another dog and a cat! Yes, I like cats, well kind of. I don’t chase them, just sometimes sneak up behind them and sniff them. I love playing with my foster fur-brother. He and I chase each other in the back yard. I get super excited and do summersaults. My foster parents just laugh, I just lay on my back and roll around in the grass. I love all the attention I get from the 10 year old and 12 year old. I just lay by their side and follow them around the house. I love to be by people. I melt, like butter, when someone is petting me. I slide all the way down their leg and lay on their feet. This is my trick to keep you there, so you pet me! I am pretty sneaky!! My foster mom takes me for a walk or run every day. I love that! I love going outside and I am getting use to a schedule. I am still getting use to a leash. I am not a huge fan of it and try to bite it off. My foster mom and dad think was I being trained for hunting. I am great at retrieving a ball and great off leash. I will walk near you and if you go out of sight, I come looking for you. I will find you!! If my foster dad is with on the weekends, we get to go swimming in a pond. Did I mention how much I LOVE water! I sleep on a dog bed in a crate and am being crate trained. I haven’t had any accidents in the house. I know the command sit and I am working on stay and come. I am working on taking food nicely from your hand. My foster parents wants to make sure I do okay with little kids. I do well playing with other dogs and all the neighbors that would come over. There are times the neighbors put their dogs in the back yard with me. We have our own dog park with little humans running around. It is a lot of fun. People stop my foster family and tell them how handsome I am. I have to agree. I also get told how well I behave; I had a good foster fur-brother teacher. I want to find my furever family. I think I would do best in a home where there is activity. I am still very much a puppy and will need some additional training and for you to be extra patient. I am affectionate and like to snuggle, so please give me lots hugs, kisses and praise for doing a good job.
tom and susan mackrola are very interested in tom. we would love to meet tom, have been approved, and would also love to adopt the 2 brothers together. we had 2 labs who were best friends - would love to give either or both these boys a home.
The Andersen family is very interested in Tom. We are approved and previous adopters from MLRR (1.5 years ago). We lost our 15 year rescue lab in May and would love to add another lab to our family for Duncan (formerly "Prince) as he enjoys having a second dog in the house. Thank you!
The Yudell family is interested in adopting Tom and Sawyer. We were approved for adoption in May 2014. Unfortunately we had to put our adoption plans on hold when we found out our rescue dog Bruno was diagnosed with cancer. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We would love to be Tom and Sawyers forever home.
