Physical appearance: Toby is a 10-year-old male Doberman with natural ears and a docked tail. He’s a tall boy and weighs in at 90lbs.
Personality: Toby is the definition of gentle giant. He is sweet, calm and velcro. Toby is most content being by your side or at your feet chewing his bone. He is very sweet and patient with the min pin puppy in his foster home, even though she’s way more energetic and playful than he is. She gives him a bit of a pep in his step! He has been sweet to and loved everyone he met, though sometimes he can take a minute to warm up. We have not had Toby around kids, so will not adopt to a home with small kids, but older children will be fine. If you’re looking for a sweet, cuddly love bug that doesn’t need much exercise and won’t tear up your home, Toby is your guy!
Why he’s in rescue: When his owner went to jail, Toby was left behind all alone. Animal control took ownership of him and asked for us to take him in and find him a new home.
Manners and training: Toby is crate trained, potty trained, and very well-mannered in the home. He likes his crate and will go lay down inside for a nap or to just chill out. He has not been destructive, and he does not seem to know any commands like sit, lay down, or stay but you can absolutely teach an old dog new tricks!
Vetting: All our dogs are brought up to date on rabies, Bordetella, and combo, negative for intestinal parasites and heartworms, neutered and microchipped before adoption. Since Toby is an older dog, he does have some arthritis in his hips. His ideal home would be on without too many stairs.
