Facts about Tobie

  • Breed: Border Collie/Chow Chow Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9559578

Tobie unexpectedly found himself at a local shelter when his original people moved and could not take him with them.  He is about 4 years old and around 50 lbs.  He is a sweet, gentle boy with people and loves all animals that are bigger than 20 lbs.

Tobie is not a big barker and would be a very easy dog for someone looking for their first dog or for just an easygoing companion.  He is housebroken and is a gentleman who is never destructive.  His manners are excellent. 

He will walk on a leash, but requires an Easy Walk harness to reduce pulling and he is getting better.  Tobie s reluctant to get into a car but, with persuasion, will go and is a good passenger once in the vehicle. 

Tobie is somewhat skittish and would likely do best in a home with older children.  He also is not a fan of cats or dogs smaller than 20 lbs, but he'd love a medium to large sized playmate.  He could just as easily be an only dog as well.

Tobie's adoption fee is $175 and includes vaccinations, veterinary well visit, neuter and microchip.

About Hope Marie's Fund

About Our Rescue Group...

Hope Marie's Fund is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue for dogs, cats and other small animals. We primarily focus our rescue efforts on animals with medical or behavioral needs that are preventing them from getting the care/attention they need in our local shelters. It's through our assistance that they are able to get healthy both mentally and physically and find permanent, loving homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold a monthly adoption event on the last Saturday of each month from 12-3 at 4247 N State Road 135, Franklin, IN 46131.

Our Adoption Process...

At HMF our adoption process requires potential adopters to first submit an application expressing their interest in a specific pet. Once the application is approved a meet n greet will be scheduled for the potential adopter to meet the particular pet they are interested in adopting. If the meet n greet goes well then a home visit will be schedule and that is when we will bring your new pet home to you. Our adoption fees are $300 for puppies under 6 months of age (includes spay/neuter at appropriate age); $175 for adult dogs; $100 for mature/medical/special needs dogs; $100 for kittens under 5 months of age (includes spay/neuter at appropriate age); $50 for adult cats; and $35 for mature/medical/special needs cats. Our small animal (i.e., guinea pigs, hamsters, etc.) adoption fee is $25.
