I sure am missing my little boy Tug. He had to be euthanized due to an inoperable tumor. He was the most loving animal I have had the pleasure of caring for. I rescued him from HRI at the age of 5 and had him 6 wonderful years. Peace be with him!

Hi, I’m Toto and we’re guessing I’m about 7 years young based on my fine physique and sweet attitude. I am actively looking for a new family to love and snuggle with. It’s hard to stay still and cross my paws in anticipation when I’m excited but I can, and will be patient for the perfect family. I know you’re out there!

When my foster family took me in, I had a skin infection and infections in both ears.   I was shaved down Toto Gr scarf 02-2012and “Oh, I felt so much better after”.  I took antibiotics for a couple of weeks and I’m fine now.  Because of the skin allergies I eat special Holistic Organic Dog foods and I now weigh in at a svelte 15 lbs. and 10 oz.

My Foster brother and I run around in the house chasing each other, and I have taught my foster brother to jump up on the couch - my foster mom said she wishes I would potty train him, because he’s not as perfect at it like I am. I’m also told how smart I am because I learned quickly to sit and stay.

Almost forgot to tell you some of my other favorite things to do! Chase my Foster cats, it’s so much fun to see them run - they just run away and do not hiss at me, they’re really nice kitties. I also love it when my Foster dad lays down to watch Golf on TV and I jump up and snuggle close to him. I love getting lots of pets, hugs and I LOVE Treats.

I am a very sweet little dog, who wants to be good and wants someone to love me and I will love you forever in return.
