Meet Tommy: a stylish and handsome greyhound mix with cute whippet (flying-nun) ears and a beautiful mocha-chocolate colored coat. Tommy has a very unique nature at the shelter. He is very sensitive, affectionate like a creampuff, and the most loyal companion. Sometimes he thinks he's a lapdog! He loves his people and is 100% guaranteed to bring a smile to your heart on a daily basis! He can be known to be a little rowdy because of his anxiety in the shelter. His ideal home would be a fairly low-traffic and quiet place.

Energy-wise, Tommy would be considered to be medium energy. He loves his walks around the APA! campus. Playing fetch with a tennis ball is always enjoyable for him!

Tommy is currently being trained in our TOP-DOG program, so he has lots of good skills to be an awesome dog! You can see more about our training programs here: https://vimeo.com/89434193

Tommy would love to show you how sweet and silly he is. Come meet this boy!
