THE KING OF HEARTS
King Tommy is an Indian Pariah dog who went on to become a superstar. Against all odds, a young free ranging dog who had boiling water thrown over him and was left chained, sick and starved, is now a stellar therapy dog specializing in adults with special needs. He is also a champion show dog, obedience winner and the global ambassador for Indian dogs.
We have been featured in numerous articles in India and other countries to raise awareness of the plight of Pariah dogs.
After living in India, the King and I landed in California; he had never walked on a lead, and neither had I. We went to dog school and two months later he won his first obedience competition, passed the American CGC test (equivalent to UK gold) and the American TDI test.
He has lived in Goa, California, Italy, France, Spain, Sweden, the UK and Switzerland.
He is 11 years old now and enjoying his life running his own B&B "Chateau Tommy".
