Toby is very playful. He loves to play with and chew his squeaky toys, and also run through the sprinklers. Although he is lovable, he does have a strong personality. Because he will do anything for a cookie and is very smart, he can be trained.
Toby initially had a foster sister boxer that he played with well, but he has been the only dog for a while and he has a pushy personality so he might be better as the only dog, although with proper introduction, he could be friends with the right dog. He sticks close to his foster Mom at home and wants to ride in the car at every opportunity. He loves Home Depot and Pet Smart and behaves well. He has had obedience training and it shows in his behavior, but he requires a strong leader and continuous training to keep him busy and expend his energy. Although Toby has not been around cats, and he does show interest in them, he might be able to be trained to live with a cat but we are not certain at this point. Toby has been around older children but he plays roughly so should not go to a family with children less than 12 years of age.
Toby came to NCBR with frequent and severe seizures. After trying many medications and varying doses, we finally have Toby’s seizures controlled. And now that his seizures are under control, Toby has more energy and willingness to do every thing he can, whether it’s running with his foster fur brother, playing catch by himself with his squeaky ball, or learning new fun and different commands.
Toby has gotten along with every foster we have had and has been a great role model, showing them the ropes.He is still learning to not play so rough. Toby is loving in his own way without smothering you, and when he’s not feeling well he will come to you for comfort and support. He is a great boy and traveling partner.
Toby was excited to get outside after our very wet winter!
