Hello my new friends, my name is Toby! I hear Toby is slang for someone lovable, caring and stylish - well, I am both lovable and loving, and you can't get more dapper than I am in my smart tuxedo coat! I am a 5 year old Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier mix and, true to my inner Lab, I love to play ball (especially with the squeaky kind, I am an excellent catcher!), and I love to swim, and I know lots of tricks like sit, paw, down and drop it! I can be a little shy when I first meet new people, but spend a little quality time with me (and give me lots of my favorite neck scratches) and I'll blossom into a big sweetheart before your very eyes! Polite, friendly and good-natured, I would make a lovely companion for a moderately active family. I did not get along with the dog in my foster home and will not be able to live with a dog in my new home. However I used to live with a human child and enjoyed that! I do have allergies that I'm being treated for, the staff here is feeding me a yummy new kind of food and I'm feeling much better! If you're looking for an all-around good boy to be your faithful fun companion, please come meet me soon!
