Meet Toby

Hi I'm Toby. I was found wandering the streets out west and was found by a lovely Ranger who took me to the pound and Vaccinated me. Under Duty of Care, DCH Animal Adoptions were contacted to pick me up immediately as life in a pound is hard, especially for a 15 year old and the hot weather was just around the corner. Well after a search for my family, no one came forward to claim me so here I am waiting for a furever family to look after me till the end. I was completely matted and covered in fleas and my initial carer removed a tick phew! I am described by my current foster carer as a friendly older gent. I am great in the laundry tub having a bath and sit still when I am being groomed. I don't eat much and I learnt to use doggie doors the very same afternoon I arrived. I don't like cats, but I do like people. I am active and agile for my age. The best family for me would be an older family so we can grow old together. If you'd like to meet me, please e-mail my carer with your living situation so that all applications can be sorted into the best home for me and you. Bye for now, hope to meet you soon. Toby xx
