Abby was Adopted! Introducing Toby

Abby received an application for adoption last week, and went to her new home on Saturday!  She's now living with a very nice couple who has a lot of dog experience.  She has a fenced in yard and I think she'll be very happy in her new home, in spite of the fact that she has to share her new home with cats!

On Saturday I met Toby, who came to adoptions from an area shelter.  He had been there awhile and was getting a bit difficult to handle since he'd been living in a kennel for so long.  He also wasn't getting much attention from potential adopters at the shelter, so another volunteer agreed to take him as a foster dog.  But since Abby was adopted, and the volunteer who planned to take Toby didn't have any other high energy dogs, I offered to take him so he would have Target and Forrester to play with at my house.  He's fit right in, and is doing great so far.

Toby is about ten months old, and he is a very high energy, playful dog!  He doesn't have many manners yet, but we're starting to work on that.  He loves other dogs and so far he just seems afraid of Merlin, my cat.  He shouldn't be too hard to adopt out, especially once he learns some manners, since he seems to love everything and everyone.

Congratulations, Abby!

Toby is adorable and with some manners, you should find a loving family in no time.

How does Ziggy handle the comings and goings?

Toby is just beautiful! Looks like he'd make a wonderful agility dog. I hope he finds a wonderful home very soon!

Congrats Abby!!

I agree with you about Toby. Once he learns the ropes, you will have people lined up. He is so young and with some manners he will be hard to resist at adoption events.

Awwww, what a cutie. I love him already!! You must have such a blast at your house taking in all these different dogs and getting them ready for new homes. You've touched so many lives that might not have made it if it wasn't for you. You are awesome. Thank you for what you do. You inspire me to do more.

And how wonderful for Abby. :)
