This gorgeous fella didn’t have the best luck in life- could you be the person that changes that? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Toby, a 6-year-old Husky and Sheltie mix from Vineland, New Jersey. This lovely dog is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, and well mannered. He would prefer to be the only pet in the household- Toby wants to be the center of your world!

Toby’s Tale

Toby’s life’s story is not a happy one. Through no fault of his own, Toby has been bouncing around from home to home. In his 6 years of life, this pooch had 5 homes. He was first rescued from a neglectful owner and adopted by a family where he spent a few happy years. After his new owner passed, a friend of the family sold him, only for Toby to end up living out of a car with a homeless owner. Luckily, the person realized that this was no way for a dog to live and he was surrendered to a rescue so they could give him a new chance at life. Despite all of this, Toby is a calm, well-behaved pooch. The bumpy road he was on until now hasn’t left a mark on his spirit!

The staff at the shelter reports that Toby has been the sweetest, most cooperative pooch ever. He’s eager to please and is sure to blossom when he finally gets a furever family. Owing to his Husky and Sheltie genes, he is a very smart pooch and would benefit from having an owner that has experience with intelligent, energetic breeds. Ideally, his new family would live in a house with a securely fenced yard or be able to take Toby to frequent walks and outings where he could spend energy.

Toby would do best in a home where he would be the only pet and the baby of the family. After all he’s been through, he needs peace and stability in his life.

If you think you can give this lovely dog the life he deserves, contact The Cumberland County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for more information.
