“Hi there! My name is Toby. I’m guessed to be about 8 years old. Just look at my cute face — how can you resist me???!? I’m a pup who was down on his luck until some nice people took me to the shelter and now things are looking up! I guess you could call me a diamond in the ruff, I’ve got a few medical issues that are being managed but nothing that isn’t commonly seen in senior pets like me. My past is shrouded in mystery, so it is unknown whether or not I have any experience with other pets in a home — but the staff and volunteers have noticed that I don’t really like obnoxious and bouncy dogs all up in my business! As for children, they need to be old enough to be respectful of my age and condition. I’m not looking for much, a soft bed to lay on, some short walks to keep me limber and two squares a day to keep my tummy full! (The occasional treat or two would not be turned down either!) Come to the shelter to visit with me today, I’ll show you that this old dog still has a few tricks up his sleeve!”

Toby is posted for the Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County in Tacoma, WA.
