Gomez, the rat terrier, was a stray for quite a while before F.I.D.O. volunteers saw him in their neighborhood and began to pursue him to get him off of the streets. After talking to neighbors, the F.I.D.O. volunteers humanely trapped Gomez and fostered him in their home. Over the next two months, Gomez’s health improved and he learned how to relax and enjoy the company of people again. However, Gomez found true happiness in a home of his very own. The Johnson family wanted to add a second dog, and they knew that Shannon, their Wheaton terrier, needed an older male companion. Gomez was more than happy to fill that slot and has been adjusting well to his new home. He even sat still for the annual Thanksgiving family portrait.
