Toby's Story...
Toby is a Shar Pei/Boxer/Coon Hound-mix, male, 2 years of age.

Have you ever seen such a handsomely distinguished dog?! Toby is not only a one-of-a-kind looker, but he also has a personality to match. Part playful, funny-guy, ready to entertain you with his comedic ways and playful antics; and part sensitive, serious-minded canine, attentively and deeply devoted to his people and eager to please, he is an all-around extremely loving, zesty and full-of-life, little charmer.

Always sincere, but sometimes a little frisky with a puppy-like rambunctiousness, Toby thrives with structure and routine – established rules and boundaries to which all family members consistently adhere too. A dog who if he senses he is stronger-minded than his owner, may not take him or her seriously. Toby simply needs a responsible, caring owner who sets him up for success from the get-go by providing him with the confident leadership and faithful companionship he needs and deserves for the rest of his life.

Affectionate, intelligent, attentive, and responsive to direction, Toby craves human companionship and close contact, and he revels in praise for accomplishment. Lively, playful, and ever-curious, he needs regular physical activity and mental stimulation to stay happy, healthy, and well-behaved. A dog who likes learning new things and being challenged, Toby will benefit from training and socialization opportunities, and he’ll enjoys and excel in obedience. This will also be an excellent way to bond with him as well as to reinforce good canine manners.

Toby is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.

Come meet Toby at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

For more information you can email carrie_nation@monroemi.org or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.

Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.

Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.

In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Toby, a Monroe Shar Pei/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shar Pei/Boxer for sale in Monroe, or seeking a Shar Pei/Boxer 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 Shar Pei/Boxer breeders who help with Shar Pei/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Monroe paves the way for another one to be saved.
