Meet TOBY! *courtesy post-contact Marlene at 949-558-5320 for adoption info!

Toby is will be 6 years old in December.  He is healthy, active, lovable and loyal.  He is pretty attached and does not let me out of his sight.  He loves being held and is a total lap dog.  He weighs 10#s, up to date on shots, neutered and chipped.  He came to me as a rescue in pretty poor shape so not sure what he came from.  He does better in an adult environment, is OK with children although he is better in a setting where he does not get a lot of stimulation.  He is good with the groomer but gets highly excitable when seeing other animals.  He tends to be shy with strangers but is very sweet and calm as long as he is held.  He came to me right after the death of my husband so I have spoiled him into thinking it was he and I against the world.  Although he has not been exposed to men he responds well to them if they show interest.  He is smart, trainable and crate trained.  He sits, does down but his little butt is always jiggling.

About I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

I.C.A.R.E. is an all breed, no kill dog rescue. We rescue dogs at risk of being euthanized from shelters, abandoned, abused, and stray dogs. We also rescue many owner surrendered dogs; which are dogs that can no longer remain in their current homes due to financial or personal issues. I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue is dedicated to reducing the number of dogs that are euthanized in our shelters each and everyday. We focus on rescuing and rehabilitating them in loving foster homes until they are adopted into their permanent homes. We also focus on educating the public regarding specific breeds, rescue, and general information regarding the canine species. We are a 100% volunteer run and supported organization that cannot survive without the help of loving fosters, volunteers, and benefactors.
