Thomas was born August 10th, 2023 so is about 3-1/2 months old as of December 3rd, 2023. His owner lives in La Porte City, Iowa. He is now getting the mother dog spayed so this doesnt happen again. Thomas is a Waverly Pet Rescue puppy now and lives in a foster home.

Thomas is a sweet pup. He weighs over 20 pounds already. His mom is a chocolate lab. Not sure who his father was. He looks like a black lab but could change as he grows. Not sure how big he will get. A guess will be about 40 or 50 or 60 pounds, maybe bigger? 

Thomas is in a foster home with other dogs, cats, and children so he will be good with all of them! Thomas will be able to go into any home, be good on walks, and at dog parks. Full exposure as a puppy will make Thomas a great canine citizen. Thomas is doing good! He is working on potty training and has gone a full 5 hours at night without having to go out. I have my mom helping me by going over during the day to let them out to prevent accidents in the crate. And honestly, he has only had a few accidents in the house and are getting the hang of going in and out to go potty. Will need continued training when he gets adopted and is in his forever home.

Thomas is a sweet boy. He loves to play and run around. Has a lot of puppy energy. Thomas is a big guy. He can be a little shy at first but once he warms up he loves to play and be petted. Needs a home that has time and love to continue working with him, training him, and spending time with him.

Thomas has 1st distemper / parvo vaccine, dewormed, flea preventative, and started on Heart Guard. When he is old enough, he will need a rabies vaccine. We have his neuter set up for 12/6/23 at our vet in Waverly. If you are local and adopt him before that, you will be required to get him to that appointment. If you are not local, you can get him neutered at your own vet and then have your vet email us the proof of his neuter.

12/3/23 UPDATE: Thomas enjoys cuddling at the end of the night on the couch. He is doing good with potty training, just working on letting me know when he has to go while playing. 

12/6/23 Thomas is neutered now! And has his rabies shot!
