Toby's Info...

Toby's Story...
Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
Sex: Male
Age: 1.5 years
Size: Medium/small - compact
Coat-color: Red
Group: Terrier – Companion
Energy level: Moderate

Sweet-natured, easy-going, undemanding, mild-mannered, and aiming to please, this affectionate little charmer, while being quietly unassuming, will completely steal your heart. A sensitive, gentle soul who is always well-mannered, Toby gives telltale signs of his genuine love for people with warm expression and enthusiastic tail-wag (we call it wiggle-butt). Readily sharing his affection and kisses upon invitation, he is a people-oriented canine who lives for companionship and close contact, and he loves to snuggle. Intelligent, active, curious, and playful, he needs daily mental stimulation and physical activity to stay happy and healthy. His exercise needs are pretty modest though and can be met with interactive outdoor romps, regular leashed walks, and adventurous outings alongside family members who he will, of course, be wholeheartedly devoted to. Toby is currently working on his leash skills and good manners training with Monroe SPCA. He’s extremely obedient and quick to please; easy to handle and very attuned to handler.

Toby is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, low-active to moderately-active lifestyle. As with all of our adoptable pets, we recommend a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be assessed at the shelter at this time.

Toby currently resides at the Monroe County Animal Shelter. The shelter is located at 911 South Raisinville Road, Monroe, MI 48161. You can meet him during regular shelter hours; Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 am until 3:00 pm, and Saturday, 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. For more information please visit our facebook page at Monroe County Animal Shelter-MI or call us at 734-240-3125.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Toby, a Monroe American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Monroe, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Monroe.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Monroe already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Monroe breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Monroe paves the way for another one to be saved.
