BIO: Hi there, my name is Toby. I was surrendered to SCBR because my elderly Mom passed away therefore leaving me in need of a new forever home. There were no family members available or willing to take me in, but thankfully one family member was kind enough to care for me until he could safely ensure that I would go to a rescue that could find me a wonderful home. I was the apple of my Mom’s eye, her guardian, protector and loving companion. As you can tell by my weight, I was never slighted in the Milk Bone department. Even though I am a stocky boy, I could afford to lose a couple of pounds, which I’m sure I will once I’m given the opportunity to run, play and get proper exercise. I am in desperate need of a new loving family and forever home that is willing and able to show me even half the love and attention that I am willing to show them. I am house trained, crate trained and kennel trained. I do look a little ragged in the top picture and will be shaved down by SCBR shortly. Consider me a diamond in the rough. I am very loving and attentive and am looking for a kind and loving lap to lay my head in. I walk very well on a leash and ride well in a car. I get along great with other dogs, older children and adults. Because of my size it is not recommended that I go to a family with small children. I am up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm checked, and micro-chipped (w/lifetime registration). So if you are looking for that special someone to share your hopes and dreams with, I am your man. I am currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI. You must have a completely fenced and secured yard in order to adopt her. Not cat friendly.
**Well, here is a picture of me with my “new do”. I look and feel so much better without all the mats and dried feces caked all over my body. I bet the groomer took five pounds off of me when she worked her magic with her clippers. I was as good as could be with the groomer and so grateful to get rid of the excess hair and mats that I was carrying around.
**UPDATE Adoption Pending Belleville, IL**
