Tom appears as a Great Dane with white and brown fur (LPS #577). He has heterochromia iridum, meaning one of his eyes is a different colour than the other - one is blue, and one is brown.
Tom is a humorous, good-natured dog. He tends to get involved in relationships quickly, such as when he met Savannah or Violette, but doesn't jump into one until the other is finished. Tom appears very honest, telling the truth when he needs to. He does not seem to be a top student, as shown when Mr. Burke was not pleased to have Tom in his English class.
Season 1 He has a cameo in Hugs and Disses where he is drinking milk. He also had a Cameo in Calories and Competitions.His first real appearance is in episode 8, Angel or Devil? Tom moves to Savannah's English class and becomes Savannah's partner. Tom and Savannah go out and kiss on the lunch table, with a failed attempt Brooke and Sage try the same. Brooke and Tom are making out and cheating with each other and Tom was cheating before Savannah went out with him. Tom gave Savannah a necklace and she is seen wearing it often. At Brooke's party Tom makes an "unknown" deal with Brooke, and if he doesn't do what she says, she will post a video of them kissing on her bed, the plan turns out to be that she and Tom started to make out and Brooke was hoping Savvy would see. She ended up seeing them and went to cry behind the disco ball with her mascara running and she threw away the necklace.
Toms role in episode 15 was minor, he is seen coming from the stairs as Sage looks for Brooke, and is mentioned by Savannah, he is seen gasping at Savannah and Sage.
Tom also reveals that he really used to like Brooke until he found out that Brooke was cheating on him and he tried to explain what happened after he heard Savannah cry. Brooke interrupted him a couple times making him yell.
Tom also appears in "Alls Fair in Love and War". Brooke reveals to have cheated on Sage with him(this is confimed in It All Comes Crashing Down). Funny enough while Brooke tells Rachel and Alicia about this, he is standing behind them.
It is revealed Tom is in France. He is seen sitting alone at a school he transferred to. A girl named Violette walks up to him, asking if he knows any French. He replies no and then Violette says she knows some English. They start to talk and Tom ends up telling her what happened at his old school.
