Story
Tobias is two years old. He is very sweet and loving (lots of energy.) He was my uncles dog. However, my uncle would not properly take care of him. Therefore, I’ve been taking care of him. Unfortunately, I don’t have much time with work and school. It saddens me but he deserves a better home. Im looking for a loving home for him that will take good care of him. There is no adoption fee all I ask is for Tobias to be treated with lots of love. UPDATE: I got a letter from the mobile homes that pets are not allowed anymore. If you are interested or know someone please let me know! Thank you.

Story
He loves chasing balls, going on runs and chewing on bones. He’s a little afraid of water but when leashed and reassured he’s good with his hose baths. His name is Leonidas but responds to Leo. Can’t have him at my apartment anymore, also he’s an outside dog. I trained him to walk with and without a leash but don’t know how he’ll respond to a new owner. Just want to find him a good home.
