Adoptable Senior Dog of the Week: Tommy G

What is it about Dachshunds, or as I like to call them Doxies, that make them so happy and upbeat? All of these wee dogs that I've met are like this week's adoptable senior dog, happy, ignores cats, and does that little Doxie trot during a walk around the block. 

This week we have a new fun interview between mischievous terrier Calvin, the leader of small club: big adventures for small dogs, and Tommy G.… a exclusive! Come read this cute question and answer session with this sweet senior dachshund, Tommy G [...]

Tommy G’s Muttville profile:

Calvin here! I'm the mischievous terrier from small club: big adventures for small dogs. My pessimism clashes with the happy-go-lucky personalities of the dogs for adoption I interview - I have to wonder, what is wrong with these upbeat dogs? I mean, they don't even have homes and still they are optimists! Today I'm introducing you to a happy doxie named Tommy G.

Rescued by Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, Tommy G is currently living in a Muttville foster home with other dogs and cats while searching for his forever family. He claims the “G” in his name stands for Good, but I’ll bet this wise guy has a Gangster past!

Calvin: Hello, Mr. G! Congratulations on being rescued by Muttville Senior Dog Rescue. With a name like Tommy G, I gotta wonder… did you used to be in the mafia?

Tommy G: Call me Tommy, Calvin! I can’t disclose the exact nature of my past, but let’s say I will always leave the gun and take the cannoli… if you know what I mean!

Calvin: Gotcha. So, how’s life as a retired wise guy?

Tommy G: So Good! I’m an easy doxie and I just want to mellow out, watch tv, love mi familia and eat lots of pasta.

Calvin: Do you like walks?

Tommy G: I sure do like leisurely strolls. Every once in a while I run a few steps, just for fun. Overall, I’m calm, cool and collected.

Calvin: Wow, I’m jealous of your relaxed confidence, Tommy. You even get along with cats??

Tommy G: Oh yeah, cats no problem. Who cares about cats?

Calvin: You are too cool, Tommy G. Funny and low maintenance! You’re gonna make an excellent companion for some lucky humans. Fill in the blanks for me, then you can get back to your cannoli...

  • What you like Best about Yourself: I can say so much with a look - my eyes are my best feature
  • What you would Change about Yourself if you Could: Adopt me already!
  • Favorite Food: Spaghetti and Meatballs
  • Best Place to Nap: Make me an offer I can’t refuse and I’ll be under the covers with you in a heartbeat
  • Most Likely To: Tell tall tales about how great the old days were

Calvin: Thanks for granting me this interview, Tommy G. I know your forever person is out there - maybe even reading this interview right now! How should they contact you?
