AGE: I'm Tommy, an athletic, active dog looking to be your next workout buddy. I am about 4 years old, sweet, affectionate, and I love people.

PERSONALITY: Because I'm strong, I will do best with consistent, positive training and structure. I take treats gently and know how to sit. During my stay at the shelter, I have been in several playgroups, where I get along best with social female dogs.

HIGHLIGHTS: If we get out and get some daily exercise, I will be quite content to unwind at the end of the day, sitting in your lap on the couch, since I'm a big cuddler!

AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S. Pacific Hwy., between Talent and Phoenix, open 7 days a week.

COST: Tommy’s adoption fee is $95, and includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Tommy is neutered.
