I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Toby # 1221's Story...
Hi, y'all! I'm Toby. I came North on a truck from Tennessee, where they released me because they only wanted hound dogs that they could use for hunting. Well, it's their loss!! I'm super special, and one of you families that reads this is going to be thrilled to have me come live with them! Do you have room for a puppy, about 15 months old?
The best guess as to what I might be a mix of is dachshund and some kind of terrier. Maybe your vet will have an opinion. I am about 18 pounds, maybe a little on the heavy side. I'm a super good eater, so that could be.
I am sooooo much fun, and love to play with other dogs. In my foster home, there are two greyhounds and two dachshunds. I get along with all but one greyhound. She is very passive and timid, and I like to growl and bark at her, which makes her run away. Other than that, I am great with dogs, kids, and adults. My foster parents get kisses and kisses and kisses, and........... well, you get the idea!! I also bark at new sounds, so that everyone can be alerted to burglars and salesmen!
As a puppy, I have two issues. First, I am not housebroken, although I DO go potty every time I go outside. I promise to try really hard to do better. Second, I do what all puppies do. I chew on things. So far, the casualties have been restricted to a pair of bedroom slippers, a couple of pairs of socks, and blankets in my cage. I am left alone very seldom, because of this. I am caged when my foster mom and dad leave, but I truly hate that. As mom said, I have destroyed a couple of blankets from the cage. Maybe I would do better in a gated-in area while you are gone, with plenty of toys to keep my attention. Some behavioral classes might be a big help too. I'll do whatever you want to make myself fit in!!
Look at my pic and tell me you wouldn't love to look up every morning and see that one ear up/one ear down thing going on!! I love to sleep in the big bed, under the covers but curled up next to you. I'll sleep till you start to stir, then I'm and ready for another day. Have your people call my people, and we can make arrangements to meet!!
