Welcome Toby! This handsome senior is an ex-puppy mill dog.  He was a stud dog for almost nine years.

Looking at him today, it's hard to think about his past where he lived outside in an unheated shed, sleeping on concrete. Toby was rescued from that life about 2 years ago. Ragom placed Toby into a loving home where he learned to love, learned that there is a good life to be had. He lived in a home where he was showered with love and compassion. He learned to trust. Toby's owner loved him unconditionally. She is surrendering Toby back to Ragom because she feels that even though he has made tremendous progress that he would be better off in a home with a fenced yard and someone who would be home most of the day with him. She brought Toby to our home today because she wanted to see where he would be fostered.

I can totally understand those feelings.  Toby is a gem!  He made himself right at home.  Our 3 Goldens treat him as one of the family already.  Toby has minor separation anxiety and will rip paper when left alone.  I'm hoping that having 3 companions to keep him company will remedy that problem while he is here.

Toby is 10 1/2 years old, UTD and microchipped. He has no bite history or aggression. He is healthy and weighs 75#. He does have minor storm anxiety and will pace and drool.  Toby is not kennel trained or baby gate trained. He loves to ride in the car. I can see how affectionate he is as he keeps nudging my hand as I am trying to key this update! I will let you know more as we get acquainted with our new house guest. If you are interested in meeting Toby, please contact your placement advisor.
