Why Hello there! My name is Toby! I am not your usual Rat Terrier, I am a wicked smart 4 year old 35 pound Decker Terrier. Never heard of a Decker Terrier? We are a pretty rare breed! Here is more information on our temperament http://www.deckerhuntingterrierregistry.com/newsletter/april2010/temperament.html
While I do need my exercise and enjoy going for walks, it is my mind that need regular exercising! I love figuring out new puzzle toys! I also enjoy doing nose work, like when my foster mom hides something yummy in a bunch of boxes and I have to find it! I LOVE food! I will do what ever you want, usually ;) if you have food. My prey drive is pretty high, Deckers are excellent hunters, so I would do best in a home without cats. I like all people, but once I get to know you I am extremely loyal. Are you looking for a wicked smart and fiercely loyal dog as your new best friend? Because I might just be your man! I am neutered, heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and have current blood work. My adoption fee is $200.

Rescue Group Info...
A Soft Place To Land, Inc. was founded in 2010 by two dog lovers and best friends. We are a small foster home-based rescue, so we do not have a shelter facility. As former breeders of English Springer Spaniels, we realized there were too many dogs out there without homes - why breed more dogs?! So we decided to rescue retired breeders so they would not be euthanized. Our hope is that eventually, through awareness of the plight of puppy mill dogs, more people will choose to adopt a pet instead of purchasing a pet through a pet store - making puppy mills a thing of the past!
We have a "donate" button on our web site. We also have a wish list on Amazon.com. We always need cleaning items, old bedding, old towels, dog beds, gas cards, and just about anything else you can think of!
We are having a meet and greets at the following locations
Step 1: Fill out an adoption application.
Step 2: Someone from A Soft Place To Land will contact you to set up a home visit and interview. After the home visit applicants and the rescue can take up to 24 hours to decide if the dog is the right fit.
Step 3: When approved, sign adoption contract and pay adoption fees.
Adoption fees vary from dog to dog, but are roughly as follows:
Dogs under 6 months of age - $300
Dog from 6 months to 1 years - $250
Dogs 1 year to 7 years - $150 - $225
Dogs over 7 years - $100 - $150
Dogs over 10 years $50
