Say hello to TOBY! Is a 10 month old, playful, fun and well behaved boy. He was surrendered to a shelter by his owner who couldn't keep them, though broken hearted to part with him. It is apparent he was well loved as he is affectionate and loving in return. TOBY (45 lbs) has semi-short coat with fun freckles on his forelegs and a docked tail.  

TOBY is crate trained and quiet overnight for sleeping. He is respectful of resident feline PuckleCat and loves to wrestle & play with his foster mates. He has not had an accident in the foster home. He knows his name and come at a cheerful run when called. He may alarm bark if strangers show up, but is easily called off. He love toys, especially deer antlers. TOBY is especially affectionate, willing to climb into foster moms lap where and whenever!. He is a true Velcro dog (sticks to you like Velcro!) He has not been food possessive or toy aggressive and take treats gently from your fingers. Being a young energetic lad, he will require daily exercise and activity. An owner that partakes in frequent walks, runs, biking, hiking etc will work best for TOBY. He then settles nicely in the evening. All in all, TOBY is a very pleasant dog and a joy to have around.

TOBY is a bit of a thinker, taking time to assess situations, and when he realizes when the other dogs are onto some good fun he quickly joins in. He walks nicely on leash and like car rides. TOBY is y are now ready for his new forever home, eager to meet his furever family.

TOBY is micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.
