Meet Toronto (Tonto)

Hi, I'm the mighty Toronto or Tonto for short, well I am short but I've got a tall personality. I might be 3kgs but it's 3kgs of solid love and affection for my fellow humans and caninies.
I was found wandering the streets out west and brought in to a Pound for some shelter and a vaccination. I am now on the hunt again for a furever home. I was thankful that DCH Animal Adoptions rescued me even though I know it's an interim holiday.
I love my tummy being scratched and can do a few tricks on demand. Whilst your're driving, I do tend to want you to make contact somehow with me but I will settle if you hold my paw. I am low shed and stay still in the laundry tub whilst being washed.
I'm super friendly and am looking for a home with someone who needs company either for them or for their canine too.
I'm due to be desexed at the end of next week so I'll need time for the wound to heal but in the meantime if you'd like to meet me, I'd be delighted.
Please e-mail my carer with a description of your background and how you will care for me and we will shuffle through all the applications and select the best match.
Thanks for reading my profile and I hope to meet you soon.
Bye for now, love Toronto xx Meet and greet 18/02/2020 successful
