Toby's Story

Head tilt perfected!  One of the benefits of Toby’s senior status- years of experience at getting the doggy head tilt just right!  Check out his pictures, you’ll agree he has nailed it!  Toby is a handsome senior whose deep brown eyes and slight greying of his face, make him one distinguished gentleman!  This sweet guy loves people and would love to spend his days curled up right by your side!  He happily enjoys all the back scratches and belly rubs that his human friends are willing to give!  Toby spent some time in a foster home and his foster mom reports that he is super sweet and cuddly.  He still has some pep in his step and likes to get out for a stroll through neighborhood!  He would do best on streets with low dog traffic, as Toby isn’t a fan of other dogs.

 Toby is ready to enjoy his golden years in a quiet home without young children.  Since Toby loves his humans so much, he wants to be the center of attention so that he can soak up all the love his future family has to give!  A home where he is the only pet is on his wish list!  And with all the affection he has to give you will be well rewarded!  Toby’s foster mom reported that he didn’t have any accidents during his stay and appears to be housebroken!  Toby so loves the company of his human friends, he would be thrilled if his new family was home with him throughout the day.  Think you have the perfect home for Toby to put up his paws and enjoy the good life?  Stop by and meet this sweet boy today!  He’ll definitely show off his head tilt for you!

  • Squeak!  Squeak!  I love Squeaky chew toys!
  • Did someone say 'treat'?  I'll take them all!
  • I'm a great walking partner and can go for miles.
  • I'm a people person!


  • I would love to find a home with children 10+.
  • I prefer quiet environments that aren't crowded.
  • Keep me company!  I prefer homebodies who are often home.
