Hi, my name is TOBY and I would love to meet you. I am a Neutered Male Pit Bull Terrier mix. The shelter staff think I am about 8 years old. I have been at the shelter since Sep 21, 2016.

Just look at my cute face -- how can you resist me???!? I`m a pup who was down on his luck until some nice people took me to the shelter and now things are looking up! I guess you could call me a diamond in the ruff, I`ve got a few medical issues that are being managed but nothing that isn`t commonly seen in senior pets like me. My past is shrouded in mystery, so it is unknown whether or not I have any experience with other pets in a home -- but the staff and volunteers have noticed that I don`t really like obnoxious and bouncy dogs all up in my business! As for children, they need to be old enough to be respectful of my age and condition. I`m not looking for much, a soft bed to lay on, some short walks to keep me limber and two squares a day to keep my tummy full! (The occasional treat or two would not be turned down either!) Come to the shelter to visit with me today, I`ll show you that this old dog still has a few tricks up his sleeve!

UPDATE: Toby, here, letting you know that I managed to score a spot in an awesome foster home - and they LOVE me! I am very quiet and well-mannered in the home and like to snuggle on a couch or comfy dog bed. I have 2 foster siblings and we like to play together! But when we get a little too rowdy, all my foster mom has to do is tell us all to settle down and we do. My foster home is pretty cool and it`s a step in the right direction, now I`m ready to find my forever home. Please contact my foster mom directly at for more information about how to meet with me!

Dogs, cats and rabbits are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, and dogs and cats are microchipped, and receive initial vaccinations. More information about adoption can be found at
