Toby (AKA Toblerone): ~10-yr-old male chocolate Lab mix 65 pounds neutered


Oh give me a home, where the central valley stray dogs don’t roam.

Where the Labs and other doggies can play.

Where owners will keep… a comfy bed so Toby can sleep.

And the county shelter is far, far away.

Home, home for the Toby.

Where the bones and the dog toys are free.

Where love and care abound, and great owners can be found.

And Toby’s future is filled with glee.

What Toby’s Foster says: Toby is very affectionate -- head in your lap, tail wiggling. He walks well on leash and is house-trained, likes to be brushed, and settles easily in the home. Needs recall and other obedience training, which we are starting on. A very good boy!

What Toby’s Rescue Rep says: Yeah, a little more fur than your normal Lab – might be some shepherd in Toby. Yeah, a missing a little bit of tail – but watch it whirl with happiness just the same. Yeah, he has grey eyebrows – makes him look pretty distinguished. This guy is so absolutely delighted to be out of that central valley shelter where he spent the last few weeks – he totally snoozed in my car for the 2-hour drive to the Bay area. Wonderful dog for a quiet family or retired folks. Likely good with cats.

Medical Information: Neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. Toby is headed to our vet for a check-up soon.

Toby is located in: Berkeley.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
