Toby (formerly known as Houston)
Toby and his six litter mates were transferred to The APA on 2/11/17 from a small, rural area in southeast Missouri, just a few miles from the Arkansas border. They received a medical exam upon arrival and were dewormed and vaccinated. Since they were too young and small for surgery, they were sent to a foster home for a little while to give them time to grow big and strong.
As luck would have it, the Brown Family crossed paths with Toby while he was in his foster home and immediately fell in love! Toby remained in his foster home until March 14, 2017 when he was finally big enough to be neutered. On March 15, 2017, the Brown Family was anxiously waiting at our front doors when we opened to adopt Toby and take him home.
Just a little over a year later, the Brown family says that deciding to make Toby a part of their family was one of the best decisions they have made. He settled into their home right away and was completely housetrained within one month. Not only has he brought a tremendous amount of joy to their family, but they have made him a pretty happy pup, as well.
