Meet Tobie!

Tobie is a neutered black rough Brussels Griffon, about 4 years old. He is up to date on his shots. He is heartworm negative and takes heartworm preventative.

This eleven pound sweet guy is very outgoing and friendly. He is looking for a home where he will get lots of love and attention. He needs work on his housetraining and leash training but is very eager to please. If you are willing to help him learn the rules, he will try his hardest to master both.

Tobie does climb chain link fencing so a wood or block wall fence is a must. Tobie is located in Prunesdale (Monterey County), CA.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Sharon.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Tobie has been Adopted!

July 27, 2008 Update!

Many moons ago you asked that I send you a few pictures of Tobie for the rescue site. We got him groomed today, so I thought I would take a bunch of him and send a few. Two of them are of him and his toys. In the last week or so he has started pulling all of his toys out of the basket and laying on them. In one of the pictures you can barely see any of the toys because they were all underneath him! Another is of Tobie investigating my camera. This was after I took a picture of him "chowing down" on his kibble. And finally there is a picture of Tobie in his toy basket. He likes to climb in it and sit on top of all of his toys.

We are amazed how far he has developed over the last several months. He started obedience class a few weeks ago and is doing pretty well. That said, he is very stubborn when he wants to be. The first week of class he decided he was finished with class, laid down and refused to get up until I said "Tobie, let's go home!" (at which point he jumped up and would have sprinted to the car if he weren't on his leash).

Best wishes,

Back for more rescue stories!
