Toby

Meet Toby!

Toby is a 9 year old Terrier mix, coming into rescue as an owner surrender. He weighs approximately 26lbs and is full of just so much love.

Toby is an absolute character. He's incredibly food motivated and will happily do some tricks for you if you've got something delicious to offer in return. Toby is incredibly affectionate and just loves to be with his people.

He does very well in the car and is absolutely amazing on walks—probably because he just loves them so much. He doesn't pull and completely ignores other dogs. Toby is working on his house training and crate training and his adopters will need to continue with this.

Overall, Toby is a very sweet dog with people but it's important to note that he was never properly socialized in his young life; he spent his whole 9 years of life as an "only child". Toby has also shown some food aggression, which his adopters should continue to work on with him. He's ok with other dogs, sometimes a little bit dominant, but it of course depends on the dynamic. Toby also seems to do well with friendly cats.

Toby also unfortunately suffers from a condition called sebaceous adenitis—an immune-mediated disorder that targets the sebaceous glands. It sounds complicated but it's really not! The condition is managed by topical treatments and he receives a weekly medicated bath to soothe the skin and prevent bacterial infection from developing. As a supplement, he also receives a small dose of prednisone alongside Omega-3 fatty acid to help his skin barrier—all of which his adopter must be willing to continue administering.
