Although an adorably sweet dog, he is not suitable for a first-time dog owner. He wants nothing more than to be your lap dog. He is very sweet & social with people, walks well on the leash & even likes to play fetch. We are only accepting applications for Toby if you live in a single family home with a fenced in yard. He may not go to a home with kids under 10. After discussing Tobys dog on dog behavior with a specialist & adoptions staff we have a few suggestions for managing Toby. Living in a densly poplulated dog friendly area is not an option. He MUST go to a single family home with a fenced in yard. He can never be allowed contact with another dog without significate behaivor training with a specialist. He can be walked easily past other dogs in the neighborhood, but should not be allowed to get within 5 feet of them, he does not show signals of aggression until it is too late. An owner should be comfortable with making this commitment to properly manage Toby.
