TOMATE – Lab Mix / 6 Months / 8.8kg / M-Neutered
Look at Tomate and try not to fall in love. Seriously, we dare you. His foster family already has – they say: “We love how he seems to always be studying everything around him, the white stripe on his face, his cute piggy tail and his gentle demeanour.”
Tomate’s list of wonderful qualities and skills goes on! He is sweet and affectionate, curious and making good progress on his house training. He is interested in the cat, but in a cute way – he has even started to give him kisses! So far, he’s interested in his rope toy, ball, and chews.
The biggest thing Tomate needs to work on is his confidence. He’s a bit skittish on walks, especially when cars go by or he hears an unfamiliar sound. He doesn’t love sudden unpredictable movements, so he will probably need a kid-free home (older, respectful kids may be okay).
Tomate’s wish list for his future home consists of a dog pal to learn from and help boost his confidence. He will also need a fenced yard. His future peeps will be committed to his continued growth and training. He has a heart full of love to give to the right family.
