Adoption Alert ~ Tommy #2793 - Adoption Pending

Hi everyone…my name is Tommy and I’m 11 years old.  Yes, I’m a Golden Rescue senior statesman and as they say, age has its privileges.  For example, Golden Rescue has placed me with this special and amazing foster family who have been so kind to me.  When I first arrived, I was pretty sad and my tail was always between my legs.  You see, I don’t like change so initially this was all very scary for me.  After a few days, my tail came out and the more love I get, the more it wags.   I love my foster mom and I can tell she loves me, so my tail is pretty much wagging all the time.  And I really love the cute nickname she has for me ~ Tommy Twinkletoes!  I’m pretty good and healthy for an older fella but I do have arthritis so stairs and cars are hard for me.  Mind you, I’m getting this thing called Metacam and it really helps but it’s imperative that I go to a home without stairs.  Because I’ve been around for a while, I know my commands and I’m also good on the leash.  The only thing is, I can be stubborn.  If I’ve walked long enough I’ll just sit down and it’s hard to budge me.  Mind you, lately my foster mom has been enticing me with treats…such a smart lady (or maybe it’s me who’s smart ~ haha).  I love everyone I meet ~ people, dogs, and cats…as long as they are gentle.  I don’t like aggressive dogs, but hey, who does?  I love being touched and you can touch me anywhere.  I’m gentle with my treats and I’m certainly a lover not a fighter.  So yes, I may be in my sunset years; however, I’m looking to wile away the rest of my time in peace and quiet with a loving forever family.  I’d like to thank all the wonderful people at Golden Rescue for being my friend and for caring about me!  I will be forever grateful.
