TOM

Add to my favourites

Remove from my favourites

Tom is a large male American Akita who came to West Hatch having been found living in unsuitable conditions. Tom arrived with a skin condition on his back and very poor teeth which have now been successfully treated. Like many Akitas, Tom is wary of strangers but he does bond closely with the staff who look after him and then reveals a sensitive and affectionate side to his character. He just loves to lean his weight against you for a cuddle and show you his favourite squeaky toy! With sensible introductions to new people Tom is friendly and accepting but still looks for reassurance from those he knows and trusts. Tom is looking for a home with people who have experience of similar large guard breed type dogs and who have an understanding of their exercise, grooming and feeding requirements. He would need a secure garden to lie in and his family would need to be around most of the time as he is likely to become anxious if left alone.

To find out more about Tom, please call the RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre on 0300 123 0747 during opening hours.
