Toby the Shetland

About Toby

Introducing Toby the Sheltie. He is a beautiful boy of about 4.5 years old. Here's some information about him: he is perfectly clean in the house and doesn't destroy anything while you are gone, no crating is needed for him. At his age you have the best of both worlds, no puppy training but still lots of fun to play ball with or go for walks. Toby is very typical for the breed, which mean he likes to bark, he likes to herd anything that moves too fast and he loves to eat. Because of this, we are looking for a home with no young children as he will chase them when they run.

Toby is large for a sheltie, but he is also overweight. The right family must be committed to feeding him a healthy diet and work on losing weight, probably 5 pounds or so. No condos or apartments for him. A nice fenced in backyard would be ideal. He has lived with a cat and is good with dogs as long as they are calm. He can get overstimulated quite quickly so a relaxed household would be best. He adores people and loves to be petted and played with. Toby is quite good with come,sit, stay, and down. He's a real sweetheart. He rides quietly in the car as well. He has a slight limp when he gets up after lying down for a long time. It could be an old injury but being overweight does not help.

Please research this breed carefully before you apply,,,shelties are not for everybody.

This organization is run entirely by volunteers and we try our best to save as many homeless dogs as possible. Since there are only a few volunteers, please understand that we are unable to answer phone calls about the animals. The first step is to fill out an adoption application which you can find at: www.rosieanimaladoption.org . You will be contacted only if you are a suitable match. Rosie Animal Adoption does not have a shelter where you can come and meet the dogs. All showings are by appointment after your application has been approved, or at adoption clinics. If you have any questions, please .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). All family members must be present at time of adoption. Please note, we do not adopt strays to families with children under 12.

Adoptions

If you adopt from Rosie, your dog will be vet checked, vaccinated for DHPP and Rabies (if the dog is over 4 months), given a treatment for fleas and parasites as well as spayed or neutered before adoption. Our adoption fee is $400 and $300 for dogs of 8 years old and older.

Surrenders

Here at Rosie Animal Adoption, we understand that the decision to give up a family pet is not always an easy one and that the dog's best interests are always of paramount importance. Whether you have a family pet or a stray to surrender, please be aware that there are many unscrupulous people who are always on the lookout for unaltered dogs to breed strictly for profit. Dogs kept for this purpose, be it by a “backyard breeder” or “puppy miller,” are usually kept in inhumane conditions that are worse than you can imagine. We get many calls from people who are “in a hurry” to re-home their dogs, claiming that they simply cannot wait. With the increasing number of homeless dogs in the province of Quebec , our resources are always stretched to the limit and we do not always have immediate openings. We would ask that you please be patient when contacting our volunteers to surrender a dog.

We will do our best to help you as quickly as we can, and may also be able to refer you to another group that we are affiliated with, but the most important message here is to proceed very cautiously if you are giving away or selling your dog to someone who may be portraying a private individual. The best thing you can do is to be sure to have your pet spayed or neutered and the worse thing you can do is offer an unaltered pet “free to a good home.” We have seen what can happen.
