Bright boy Tommy set to make someone’s world a happier and brighter place
Tommy has nothing but love and affection to show the world despite the fact that the world has not always been kind to him.
Tommy was very severely beaten by a crowd of locals in the Turkish village of Uzumlu for no other reason than just being there.
A Turkish woman witnessed the attack and came close to being assaulted herself as she stepped in to try and protect the poor Tommy.
She managed to get him away from his attackers and took him home before contacting a local animal volunteer she knew to ask for help.
Tommy had to be taken to the vet to have wounds to his head, neck and back treated.
And it was after this that Animal Friends of Turkey were contacted to ask for our help in finding a permanent home for this boy.
Sometimes you just know when a special dog comes along and Tommy is just that – and what a special, special boy he is.
He has a lovely soul and is extremely well behaved. He is not just house trained, he doesn’t even like to toilet in his own garden.
He is very easy going and has such a big heart. He is one of those special soulmates that is easy to fall in love with.
He is very bright and easy to train. He is good on the lead and also great off lead with good recall to a whistle.
Tommy is just turned two years old and currently weighs in around 26-28kg. We think he may well have some Labrador in his mix.
He is great with dogs as well as cats and he gets very attached to the humans who care for him.
It is stunning that he is so loving and trusting despite the cruelty he has seen in his life.
Someone is going to be truly blessed to have this boy as a part of their lives.
