Tommy is available for adoption at the West LA Animal Shetler."Tommy" - What a Boy!


He's a big boy, but what a sweetheart he is!  Tommy has been at the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter since August 3, 2013.  He is a 6 year old, neutered male, blue and white American Staffordshire Terrier.  He weighs 72 pounds.

Tommy was described by his previous owner as friendly with everyone.  That is also how the volunteers at the shelter who have spend time with him describe Tommy.  He has a nice temperament was one comment.  Tommy is very playful and loved to get out of his run and into the yard to play.  He is not particularly interested in toys; he just wants to get out and enjoy a few moments of freedom.

Tommy is very calm and nonreactive walking through the kennel while the other dogs are barking at him.  He has been in the yard with Amelia, another large dog, and got along great with her. 

Tommy is a big boy.  He pulls a little on-leash when out but he is eager to learn and to please his person.  Tommy lived with a family for many years.  Now he finds himself at the shelter through do fault of his own.  He is eagerly waiting for a forever home where he will be loved and valued for the great dog that he is.  Don't let the shelter be his last home.  When contacting the shelter for more information about Tommy, be sure to use his ID# A1148579 as a reference.  Photo/video credit:  Debbie Fan, Twitter @blackjackbarks
