Arrival Story:
Toki was adopted by my husband from Sanctuary Animal Rescue in Alabaster, Alabama. They have a ton of great dogs for adoption and VERY reasonable adoption fees, so please check them out if you live in the area and are looking for a new best friend:

Our vet and a few trainers believe that Toki may have a bit of "doggy ADHD." She is WAY more hyperactive than other dogs her age, including dogs of high energy breeds like her (she is schnauzer/border collie!), and additionally is distractable, anxious, restless, has trouble focusing, etc. As a result, she typically needs a combination of sound, touch, and hand signals during training; her hearing is fine, but she can't focus on just your voice well enough! Toki is extremely intelligent and agile (a little TOO agile; she jumped our six foot fence several times, forcing us to add two feet of extention to it - and she's barely a foot tall!). We are hoping to one day channel her energy into agility. If any area dog owners want to help us tire her our with a playdate, or know of a good place to learn agility, please let us know!
