Hello I am Tom. I am believed to be a 3 year old American Staffordshire Terrier  mix. I was rescued by some great ADORE Houston volunteers, and I love them everyday for it. I didn’t always have the best life, but I am looking for my forever home.

When your life is nothing more than living chained up to a run down building you start to forget what love is. I lived a life of ever changing conditions. Sometimes I was cold, other days I was so hot I would try to cool off in what little water I had. Some days I would get wet from the water that fell from the sky, and sometimes I would try to hide from the loud noises the sky would make. Then one day as I was rolling around in the dirt I noticed new people. They looked nice. They came close to my area, and started talking to me. I began to wag my tail so fast I thought I was going to take off like a helicopter.

They came over to me and started petting me through the fence, and I was even able to give a kiss to one of them. I have never been able to do that, and I really really enjoyed it. Then, my person came out of the house and started to shout. I got scared like I usually did when he came around. I ran and hid under one of the cars, but then I saw him talking to my new friends. I don’t know what happened, but he told me that I could go with my new friends. I was so excited, I’ve never been this happy before.

I went on my first car ride that I can remember, and I got to go to this other place where I got a bath. I think it was my first one, because my new friends said I was stinky. That’s okay though, because when they were done I remember smelling all fresh and I didn’t itch anymore.

I am a happy boy that loves meeting new friends like the ones that saved me. I love attention, and could sit next to you all day so I can get loved on. I am good with all the people I meet, and I am good with kids as well. I like kids, because they go outside and play with me a lot. I like toys, and I like going on walks or running through a yard as fast as I can, too. I get along great with all my doggie friends, and would be great in a home with other dogs. I don’t even mind cats! I’ve traded in my life of stress and fear for days full of love, toys, and treats. All that is missing in my life is you.

I am up to date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Adoption or Foster applications can be found at!
