Likes:
Suntanning, cuddling on the couch, diving under the covers to snuggle with Mom, nibbling on people's feet! playing/running outside with Agneau & Sam

Pet-Peeves:
Probably just when one of the other dogs walks by a rawhide/treat that he may be "guarding"

chews, rope toys, balls ... he LOVES to remove the stuffing out of stuffed animals/pillows and destroy slippers/shoes, so those things are now NOT accessible to him!!

anywhere! all around the back yard

Arrival Story:
We became aware of Toby who was up for adoption through a local agency, Animal Rescue Families. He was surrendered by his owner. One month earlier we had lost our beloved Bedlington Terrier, Gracie, to DIC. Our male Bedlington, Agneau, was very sad and very lonely. He was pestering the little 12-year-old Mini Dachshund, Chloe, to play with him and she didn't want anything to do with it! We knew we'd have to find a younger playmate for Agneau. On Saturday 4/16 we went to PETCO to see Toby and if he would like Agneau & Chloe. They all got along well. Chloe wasn't too thrilled about him but she's always like that at first. Agneau was so interested in everything else going on around him! On Sunday 4/17 we went to see him again and proceeded to adopt him. After our fencing was inspected by a volunteer, he was ours to love forever. Agneau quickly showed him the ropes around the back yard and they like chasing after the ball together. They've become pretty good buddies! We look forward to spending many, many years with our funny boy!
