Tommy Boy

Start 2023 with Tommy Boy. He's a good boy with special needs. Tommy is epileptic and his family wasn't able to help him, so Tommy is with us. He was immediately put on anti-seizure drugs which are two pills twice a day and has not had any seizures in two months. These drugs and routine vet visits will be lifelong needs. Tommy is 18 pounds, housebroken, and very easygoing for a Jack Russell. Right now he is in a foster home with other dogs and gets along with everyone. If you are interested in Tommy, please fill out an application at RescueRidge.com and his foster will contact you. He really is a Good Little Guy.
