Toby, originally known as Copper, came back into rescue after his original adoption in 2019. He was a little too much for his adoptive family, so they asked us to help find him a new home where he could be happy and live life to his fullest!

At around 45 lbs, Toby is an active, enthusiastic pup. He still bounces and hops around like a puppy, though he’s now around 4-5 yrs old. He’s great with dogs and kids and people, and wants nothing more to do than run and play and chase and run some more. He looks like he may have some malamute or husky in him, and he definitely TALKS like he does, vocalizing pleasure, frustration, or just because he wants to. He is friendly, fun, bouncy, snuggly, and is pretty confident in new situations and just an overall nice dog. He loves food and is super smart, and is house-trained and leash-trained. He can go outside and run but can also settle inside with his people.

What are his quirks? He can be stubborn. He is crate trained but sometimes does not want to go in his crate, and will show his displeasure with a raised lip. He can dig outside if he is bored and not given enough mental and physical stimulation. He is sensitive to grooming, so he probably had a bad experience in the past but is much more comfortable with brushing and nail clipping if you take it slow.

He does great with people and kids and would love an active family who will make sure he’s got lots of things to do with his people or another pup!
