Toby had a rough start to life and now it is time for him to live life as a pampered pom. He is 7 years old and just loves to be cuddled or held on the couch. Toby enjoys having his back scratched, especially where his scar is from when he was almost eaten alive by maggots. He plays with water from the hose and enjoys swimming, in fact he could be in the doggie Olympics for swimming. Toby is often found sunbathing on his back or sleeping in his pen which he goes in easily with a small treat. He has the most adorable prance, and his tongue sticks out most of the time making him irresistible. He doesn't seem to know how to play, but he is slowly starting to get the hang of toys.
He loves to be held AFTER he gets to know you, however picking him up is ONLY on his terms. If he rolls over on his back and snarls, he DOESN'T WANT TO BE PICKED UP. Toby was abused by a child so he CAN NOT be around any children including grandchildren. It may be best if he is the only dog because he relentlessly tries to be the leader of the pack! He does well with a 7 month old female Pom and a 3 yr old male Miniature American Eskimo but he butts heads with the other 3 yr old male Pom in the home. We know the perfect home for Toby is out there and he deserves a life of pampering.
Toby is neutered and current on vaccines (rabies, distemper, and bordatella). He has been heartworm and fecal tested, microchipped, and is on monthy heartworm and flea preventative. His adoption fee is $250. If you are 65+ the fee is reduced to $150. If you are interested in adopting Toby, visit our website at PawsitivelyPom.rescuegroups.org to complete and adoption application.
