About Tommy

Tommy is blind. Unless he is familiar with his surroundings, he needs needs time to slowly adjust. When outside, he barks loudly if he hears someone walking loudly or gets startled. Just say "its ok Tommy". He has a very sweet loving disposition and loves to be pet and have his belly rubbed. He has a disk issue in his neck though so I try not to let him jump on furniture, pull him, and pick him up carefully. I always have a stash of pain meds for him, just in case he shows signs of neck pain (he will cry when you touch him or pick him up). He will take pills when wrapped in American Cheese or when put in soft baby food.

About Wade

Wade is a very playful dog that listens well. When he displays guarding behavior, you must tell him "down Wade" in a stern voice. Never try to touch his face or head. He loves getting brushed and always start with his low back. Brushing is the way to win him over. He can also be given a toy.

Special Requirements

Wade is a fairly recent rescue and was neglected and possibly abused. He had terrible teeth and only 8 are remain. He had too have two dentals in the past year to deal with the swelling that was in his mouth as a result of never having proper dental treatment prior to coming to live with me. He also came with a double ear infection. He is very scared when anyone tries to touch his face or head. He also has guarding behavior around food and when he is in his spot on the couch or bed.
