Black Lab Puppy “Tomas” Wants to Know What Your Thoughts on Adoption Are. . .

Hi, my name is Tomas. I am a loving puppy with a white patch on my belly and a tail almost as long as my body. My favorite thing to do is chase my two foster brothers in the backyard. I also like to receive belly rubs from my foster mom and take morning walks with my foster dad.

I am still a puppy, so please remember I nibble and need to be reminded not to nibble too hard. I also try to sneak up on the furniture, but Mommy says, “Tomas, please get down,” and I am easily redirected. I am crate trained and know to go into the crate at nighttime and when Daddy goes to the store. Otherwise, my foster dad is home all day, and we watch TV together and go outside in the backyard.

My day consists of waking up at 6 a.m., eating breakfast, watching Mom get ready for work, going for a walk, coming back and chasing my brothers in the backyard, taking a nap, waking up, getting a snack, and chasing my brothers in the backyard again. We wait patiently for Mommy to come home, and that’s when we get the belly rubs and our dinner. I eat Iams puppy food twice a day and receive two bone snacks a day when I sit nicely.

I know two commands, sit and stay, and I always use the doggy door. I am not much into toys right now, but I love to chew bones. I have tried to chew Mommy’s slippers once or twice, but she politely takes them away from me. Her shoes don’t smell too good, so I never take those. I am trainable to learn not to do that, as most puppies are.

I am not sure if I will be good with children under the age of 6 because I have only been around one of mommy’s friend’s children, and I am still nibbling. I am cautious when you first meet me, so please be patient. I also get nervous at the vet’s office (what dog isn’t?), but I know you can work with me to be more comfortable.

If you adopt me, I promise to love you and make you laugh and smile every day. My foster mom is asking that, upon adoption, you agree to take me to obedience classes. She is recommending that if you do adopt me, please try the GOOD Pup program. This program is available online at your convenience, and the first week is free! If you’re wishing for some in-person training, my foster mom is able to give you a list of highly recommended trainers as well.
