My name is TJ and I am between 4-5 years old. My history is not clear. I have gone through several homes and was not fed the proper way for most of them. I am about 30 pounds overweight and for a dog that is A LOT. I have now landed in rescue and the rescue is working to get my weight off and get me fit and trim again.
I am such a nice boy. Some of the volunteers call me a gentleman! I am a people magnet. At the store showing everyone wanted to meet me! I love people and so I was glad to greet the public and it not only gave the public a great opportunity to meet super nice me but to educate people on keeping a dog’s weight in check. As for me I want to make my next stop my forever one where I will be loved and cherished all of my days for the gem that I am. Underneath all of this excess weight is a guy who is just a lover.
I am strong! When I decide to go check out something while I am on leash you may be going with me whether you want to or not. I have a high prey drive and want to chase rabbits, guinea pigs and I fixate on cats so they are not a good idea either. The good news? I love dogs close to my own size and love to play and interact. I just want to be friends! Little dogs are unknown but even after I lose my weight I am a big boy and could hurt smaller dogs without meaning to so bigger dogs would be best. NO CATS.
I ride well in the car and I listen to my foster mom really well. I just want to learn and to please.
