My story

🔸Dough Boy is currently at the shelter, and available for rescue groups only due to behavior and history🔸

Dough Boy is a 2 year old boy who came to us as an owner surrender in June 2020; after a very unfortunate situation at his home. His ideal home is a low traffic household with adults only due to stranger reactivity. While he never lived with another dog, he has shown he likes other dogs! Dough Boy is shy at first time experiences; like meeting new people. However, once he knows you - he LOVES you!! He has found friends at the shelter - where his big personality shines through. He is extra cuddly and extra slobbery and extra interested in finding a rescue to take him. It is hard not to fall for this big boy! He loves to run around the yard like a puppy, he loves his food, and LOVES his people. At this time, Dough Boy is only available to rescue groups, so if you are a rescue and would like more information: please email: rescue@tohmail.org
