Adopt this Pet: Thomas

This guy wants to meet under the mistletoe.

Looking for a stocky, dark and handsome guy who isn’t afraid of commitment? If so, you’re sure to fall for Thomas, an 8-year-old Labrador mix temporarily living at the Hilton Head Humane Association. With George Clooney-like graying hair, Ryan Gosling-like white teeth and the wise brown eyes of Morgan Freeman, this jolly gent is easy to look at. Plus, he’s got a best friend type of personality.

Katie Leasure, an adoption facilitator at HHHA, had this glowing review: “He is a sweet, lovable guy,” she said. “He has no problem getting along with everyone and he loves his treats! He always greets you with a smile.”

Not only do animals give you unconditional love, but they have been shown to be psychologically, emotionally and physically beneficial to their companions. Give yourself that gift this holiday season. The adoption fee for qualified owners is $100.

Breed: Lab mix
Age: 8 human years
Weight: About five Weiner dogs
Likes: Spinning before lying down, panting, belly scratches
Dislikes: The word ‘colonel.’ “Why in the frick is it spelled like that?” – Thomas
