What can I say about the amazing Tom, our 13 year old Bichon Frise. He is the loveliest boy. Please don’t let his age put you off, this boy has lots of energy and would love to find a home where he could explore the garden and go on walks. He has a tail wag for everyone and loves to meet new people and dogs when out and about. He is very confident and his favourite thing is to go for walks and explore his surroundings. He really does deserve the best home. He has taken everything in his stride and has done incredibly well considering his age. Tom would really like to be with someone who is home most of the time and he will happily sit and snooze as long as he has had his exercise.
Tom has a few lumps and bumps which have been checked by the vet who has confirmed that one is a fat cell, he has a cyst on his groin which the vet has just advised to keep an eye on and also one on his foot.
Tom loves nothing more than being stroked. He will nudge you with his nose for more and any other people/strangers he has come across he always wants to say hello.
Tom has been in contact with ages 3, 10 and 14 and he was just as happy with children as he is with adults. He shows absolutely no fear and just wants to be petted.
Tom loves dogs! When out for a walk he insists on going to say hello to any passing dogs. He could live with another dog quite easily. He has spent time with a family dog and after the initial excitement settled down and was happy to relax.
I think Tom would be best to not live with cats. We have come across a few on our walks and he initially stares at them but then tries to chase /play with them.
There have been no accidents in the house at all. Tom will cry or bark when he needs to go out and if the door is left open he will happily go out to the garden to do his business. Tom will need a home that will allow him to sleep on the bed. He likes to be near you, but will sleep all night. He wakes up early for the toilet but will happily go back to bed once let out. Tom isn’t interested in any toys and hasn’t been destructive at all. He lets you know when he wants to be fed which at the moment is first thing in the morning, a small handfull of food in the afternoon and then again tea time. I think Tom is used to being fed for most of the day so I have been working with him to cut this down, but he will bark when he is hungry and won’t stop until you give in. I have only left Tom for a short time and he seemed ok. He barked initially but was quiet when I returned. He really would like owners who can be home most of the time.
Tom can pull when on walks but this has improved. He likes to go his way and loves nothing more than to sniff the grass. He has so much energy and will happily go for a walk any time of day. He has been in the car many times and is absolutely fine. Tom was very brave in the vets and there were no issues.
