PURINA Pound Pups To Dog Stars


Tom - Male Staffy / Boxer Cross (Levin)

Purina Pound Pups To Dog Stars on TV ONE and TVNZ Ondemand

ADULT Male staffy/boxer Cross


Tom was rescued by ARAN from the Ruapehu Pound, when he was unclaimed and due to be destroyed. He is thought to be a Staffy Boxer Cross.  

Tom is a handsome, friendly, good natured boy, about 3 years old. He is good with people, children and other dogs, big and small, but not so good with cats. Tom is longing for his very own person who can give him the love he so deserves, along with the training he needs. He wants to please and should be easy to train. 

Tom is a gentle, calm dog and because of his bad start to life, he does have separation anxiety and needs a home with company for most of the day and good fencing. If he could go to work with his person, he would be in heaven. He is a kind, good natured dog, playful and cuddly, who enjoys being someones mate and having company. He is crate-trained, house trained and sleeps inside. He wants to be a member of the family, not alone outside in a kennel. 

Tom has spent many months in foster care while waiting for the right home offer. So far, he is still waiting.
