Tommy Pomerians x Chihuahua DofB 06.07.18 Feltham Foster

Current Status: Available


Tommy's Story: Tommy was taken in at 5 months old, and since been living with a Jack Russell. He proved to be a little nervy for his family. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Tommy is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Tommy is in foster with 3 other dogs in Feltham awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.

Tommy's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information: 15. 07.19: We’ve been asked to help with a little dog with fear issues. His name is Tommy and he’s a Pomeranian x Chihuahua aged just a year old. He’s fully vaxed, neutered and chipped. Owned him since he was 5 months old, got him from a free ads site - he had been kept in a bird cage and not socialised. He’s nipped the autistic son (young adult) on the hand. Can be scared of strangers, scared on walks, likes other dogs. Likes company at night.

Might you be able to help him please? Kind regards Amanda S&S

Tommy was very scared when he arrived on Friday so I took him up to Charley's bedroom so he could have some quite time to unwind after his journey.
He sat behind Charley watching what was going on for an hour before he was brave enough to let charley stroke him and slowly put a harness on.

I then took him for a little walk but he was so nervous, tail between his legs and he was stuck to my side the whole time. So 20 mins later I took him out again with Jay and after 5 mins he started walking by Jays side with his tail up. He even wandered around having a little sniff.

Well after that he was happy to spend the evening curled up on the sofa next to me and Jay until it was time for bed, where I made him a covered crate next to my bed and he slept soundly all night.
As soon as I woke in the morning he hopped up onto the bed for cuddles and has been my little shadow since love4.gif.
He still needs to learn his manners around dogs but my little ones are telling him when he has overstep the mark and he listens well and backs off. And last night Rudy rewarded him with a little play time thumbs.gif

Poor little tommy was so nervous when he first arrived but he is slowly gaining his confidence.
He will now just jump up onto our laps for cuddles and will give us little kisses thumbs.gif

He loves Charley and gets so excited when she comes home. It's so funny to watch as his whole body
wriggles and he jumps around like a little lamb.
He will spend all evening cuddled upto her on her bed and will only come down for toilet breaks and a treat.

He has really bonded with my little one's but can be a bit bossy with poor Jamie.
His dog skills are good but he can bark when out on walks but once calm he will say hello nicely and he even
played with a little king Charles we met.

He is reactive to people and can bark so we are working on getting him to sit quietly while they pass. He is
slowly getting there with the help of cocktail sausages!

Tommy is a super sweet little boy who hasn't been socialize so needs time to settle and trust. Once he trusts
you he is the most loving little fella. love4.gif

Thought it was about time I done an update on little Tommy.
His nerves are slowly fading and he is a much more chilled boy around the home. He spends most of the day playing with Rudy & Biscuit or chewing on a nylabone, But also loves to lay on the back of the sofa and have a nice snooze.
He loves his food and used to jump up at me until I put it down but now I just have to hold my hand up and he will sit nicely and wait for it to be put down for him. thumbs.gif
Charley has also taught him high 5 and speak!
He still likes to tell people off when out walking but it has lessened and he now only does this if they walk close by.
He will try and chase joggers, cyclist and even car headlights so you need to be aware when walking him.
Tommy loves dogs and meets all sizes well as long as he isn't rushed and he really would love to live with a playful doggie friend.

Once Tommy trusts you he is such a funny, loving little boy and gives wonderful cuddles and kisses. He just needs that special family to come along who are willing to take things slow and let him settle. love4.gif
