Toby can be a sensitive boy at times.  He is looking for a new home that will take their time in allowing him to settle in.  He was in a home for over 4 years, but when circumstances changed, Toby found it all a little too much to cope with, so he was returned to us.

We are looking for an adult only home for Toby, with minimal visitors.  It would be advisable to have Toby behind a stair gate as and when visitors enter the home.  That way he is not forced to interact if he is not comfortable doing so. 

Toby has mixed well with other dogs whilst he has been back at SDR both big and small, however his intake report from his previous owner states that Toby can be unpredictable with other dogs.  New owners will need to be prepared for Toby to be reactive towards other dogs and he may benefit from attending training classes for this.

Toby will need a good sized garden that he can play and run around in with a 6 foot fence.  If owners are wnating to allow Toby off the lead, they wil need to work hard on a solid recall.  Alternatively hiring a fully enclosed area once a week to give him a good run off lead would possibly a better option. 

Toby walks well on the lead and will require up to 2 hours of lead walks a day.  He is good when taking treats from you and enjoys being taught new commands.  He likes to have his brain worked, so lots of interactive games will be a huge benefit to Toby.

In a home with expericed Terrier owners who will give Toby time to settle and adjust, he will make a lovely companion. 

Can you offer this lovely boy a loving and permanent new home?
