Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog-dog rescue

Birthday:
December 10th 2006

Arrival Story:
I rescued Toby from our animal control. He is so skinny! His hair is very thin and I believe it fell out because of what happened to him. Someone called animal control to come out because a family in the neighborhood had moved out and left their dog. They did not realize they had left their dog until a man cutting grass heard a small cry in the yard behind a wooden fence. He was in the fenced in yard with no food or water for who knows how long. He was in very bad shape when he was picked up. It had been in the low 100's and we had no rain for 25 days straight. My vet said he had the hair loss because of the lack of nutrition. How he lived without water is just a miracle. Maybe he licked dew off the grass in the early mornings maybe he had a bucket of water that lasted him a while. All I know is that he was discovered just in time to save his life. He stayed at the shelter for 22 days before he was in good enough shape to be put up for adoption! Poor little guy. I can imagine him watching the sun come up and go down and sitting at the door crying for help from a family who had driven away without regard for him. A family he no doubt loved.

Bio:
Toby's 16 pounds but should be about 18 or 20 lbs. His bones are showing in his back and his ribs show too. His hair is very thin. I can see his skin when I look at his little body. His back end and his back legs are almost naked. He has a strip of hair missing on his back. Maybe it was fleas that caused the loss. Maybe lack of food and water, maybe the unbearable heat, maybe the terrible stress and fear. probably a combination of all. He eats like he will never get another meal and drinks a lot too. I know it will take a long time for him to feel safe. We will do everything we can to make him feel secure and to let him know he will not have to go hungry ever again. Unfortunately he has heartworms. Just another indication of how very little he was cared for. We will find him a SPECIAL home.

Forums Motto:
Don't leave me.

My name is Toby


Toby has his wings today.

This morning Toby was helped to cross the bridge. His loving parents took wonderful care of him and did all that could be done. Sweet little Toby had something the vets could not fix. Letting him go was very hard for them but watching him slowly die was the hardest. They loved him so much!

He had years of much love and just the kind of home I would want all my rescued dogs to go. He and his brother Monty loved each other and he later had a sister who is Boston Terrier also. His rescued sister loved him and I know Toby will be very missed by his brother and sister. As for his mom and dad, they are heartbroken and I wish I knew how to help them feel batter but I don't. I know well the pain they feel today and will carry with them for a long time to come.

Fly high sweet Toby. The angels will guide you on to the other side of the bridge and the humans who loved you so much will hold your memory forever in our hearts.

 

I am SO happy!

I finished my heart worm treatment and when I was all done I went to my new forever home. I love my mom and dad and I have to very awesome brother. He is so much fun. Sometimes we get a little tiffy with each other but we really do love each other. Monty is my bestest friend and I am so happy to have such a wonderful home. All those days and nights of being hungry, thirsty and alone are gone forever. I have so much love now and I know I will be loved for as long as I live. Thanks foster mom & dad. I hope all my foster friends there at their house get homes as awesome as mine is.

It's almost time for me to leave foster care. I have only this week left to finish my heart worm treatment. I'm feeling good. I am almost finished my Rx and then I am off to my furever home with my new brother, Monty. I will have a big back yard with only me and Monty in it. My foster mom said I'll love it there and this family will never leave me outside alone like my first family did. Oh That is going to be fun. I have to share with so many others here. Now, I appreciate my foster mon & dad but I just want my own home. They have been real good to me. My mom took me from the pound and she and dad took good care of me. I love them but they told me from day one that they were only "helping" me and this is not my special place, my "real home". My real mom calls and emails all the time. She and my real dad love me already. I just hope me and Monty are ok together. Monty has a wonderful life and maybe he won't want to share all of it with me or any other dog. I could sure understand if he doesn't want me there. I guess we will just have to see how it goes. Mom and dad say I can come back here if it doesn't work out. I'll be safe no matter what. Ahhhh just a few more days.
