Toby here and ready to move on! I am a transplant from Texas and lucky for me I arrived here ahead of Hurricane Harvey.
Not so lucky for me I had an old trauma to my left hip, most likely from an accident involving a car but no one can know for sure. The wonderful folks here took great care of me and got me the femoral head ostecetomy surgery I needed to ensure I could lead a much more comfortable and active life in the future. I have had my staples removed and am healing well. I still have to take things a little easy so they won’t let me run and play like I want to yet but they keep telling me I can slowly start to increase my exercise and some day soon I will be able to run and play like I want to.
I am a handsome and lovable fellow. I adore tennis balls, rope toys and am much more of a fan of keep away than fetch but I will trade my toys for a tasty treat. Did I mention I adore piles of comforters to lay on. I get along well with most other dogs, big and small although I can’t really play much (the vet says I need to take it easy for a little while longer). I did get a chance to swim a little at the pool at Camp Spindrift and swimming is great exercise for me and it will help to strengthen my muscles and help me heal faster.
I keep my kennel clean so house-training should be a piece of cake. I am an adult rescue looking for a more adult kind of home, one with older kids maybe 10 years and up who can respect my desire to not share a tennis ball sometimes. If you are looking for a loyal companion than I am your man.
Please come on down, spend some time with me and I am sure you will fall in love just like most of the staff and volunteers have already. To see all of the available cats and dogs at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please go to our website: capeannanimalaid.org
