Tommy’s Rescue Story

Tommy is finally beautiful and he knows it.

Tommy is finally beautiful and he knows it.

Tommy was found living under driftwood on a remote beach at the west end of the Olympic Penninsula. His hair was so matted that his back was hard as a shell, and his odor so terrible people would try to get away from him. He looked like he had been on his own for a long time.

Tommy is a Pekinese /Pomeranian mix but actually looked like a Star Wars Ewok.  Although he was a mess, his attitude was so great that we knew there was a special little dog under there somewhere.  The day we got him we whisked him off to the groomer.  Shelly Denton, the owner of Country Paws Resort, took him right away and worked on him throughout the day. He was so good, loved his bath and haircut. Just to have someone touch him was heaven for Tommy. He felt so good he played while being towel dried even though his skin was raw from the tight mats.

Next he went to his foster home where he was the best little guy. He played with the Lab and was fine with the cats.  He loved to be touched and cuddled. It must have been so hard for him out alone on that beech. After he got comfortable in his foster home he made a trip to the vet where he was neutered and had all his vaccines.

The following month Tommy was adopted and went to his forever home. His new owners love him.  Tommy has the sweetest little heart even though he looked like an Ewok!  He brought so much joy to WAG and we know his new owners will continue to enjoy Tommy for the rest of his life.

His skin was raw from the tight mats covering his body.
