TOBY#3 AD 12-10-12


ADOPTED 12-10-12 – Looking for a dog that is content and appreciative of the affection you give him? One who will pay loving attention to you and want to be with you? That’s Toby. Toby is, sadly, part of the group of 15 dogs that were rescued from a hoarding situation. He came in starved and underweight. And now he’s doing so much better. He’s putting on some weight and is almost 70 pounds. He is 5-6 years old and neutered and has a beautiful blonde coat. He’s all Lab and has a docile and sweet personality that matches his adorable face. You couldn’t ask for a better personality in a dog. Toby is laid back and friendly. He isn’t much interested in other dogs so a house with or without other dogs would be fine for him. If he’s the only dog, that would be so much the better. He will bask in the attention. He will mostly just leave other dogs alone. Cats are another story. He’d be better off in a household without cats as he may think they are big stuffed toys and want to chase them.

He’s content to just lay down with you on the couch while you watch tv and to fall asleep with his head on your lap. He is crate trained, but will probably end up sleeping in your bed. He is fun to take in the car or on leash walks. The more places you take him, the more he’ll love it. He does pull a bit, but that’s just because he’s excited to find out where you’re going. He does not need a lot of exercise, so if you are more laid back, he will fit in just fine with more of a couch potato lifestyle. He would do best in a home that isn’t loud or filled with lots of young children. Too much noise may get him nervous and he will start to bark. If there are older children and adults in the home he will do just fine. A single person or a retired couple would be ideal for Toby. He is almost completely housebroken with an occasional accident, but he’s working on it. He loves to eat, so if you love to provide treats you’ll be a perfect match.

If you want a dog that will be loyal to you for life, apply for Toby. You’ll be so happy that you did.

RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
