Toby is a very loyal and loving guy. He is shy sometimes and shrinks to the floor, but he is getting more confident when meeting new people. Toby is super sweet and loves to cuddle when he is comfortable with his human. He prefers a home with no small pets or small children. Toby is a four year old lab mix.
Toby has heartworms and will be starting treatment soon. He would greatly benefit from having a quiet home to recuperate in rather than trying to rest in a noisy and stressful shelter environment.
If you would like to provide a foster home, or foster-to-adopt home, during Toby’s heartworm treatment, Helping Strays will provide everything you need; the medical care, crate, food, etc. Foster-to-adopt would be a great way to get to know. Finalizing the adoption would be done once treatment is complete. Toby’s adoption fee is $200; he is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccines.
