Toby was found straying long with Angel, his best friend in the whole world. Toby's owners were traced but decided they couldn't give him the love and care he deserves and he has been signed over the Home along with Angel, who we have been told is his daughter.
Toby is a giant teddy bear of a dog! We don't know his breed mix for sure, but we're thinking maybe Briard? What do you think?
When incoming dogs are anxious and unsettled, we always take the view that we are not 'in a rush for a bus' and we allow them as much time as they need to settle into their new environment.
Toby is curious, and will take treats from our hands, but it might be a few days before he feels it's safe to come out of his kennel, and that's fine by us.
He has been sharing his kennel with Angel during the day, and he clearly gets a lot of comfort from his bestie, so the staff would definitely consider rehoming them as a pair.
If you'd like to meet Toby pop up to Newport City Dogs Home! TEL 01633 290 902 between 11am - 1pm and 2pm - 4pm, on weekdays, 11am - 1pm and 2pm - 3.30pm on Saturday. Please note: the home is CLOSED on Sundays.
Rehoming fees are from £120 depending on the age/breed of the dog, and include 1st vaccination, flea & worm treatment and neutering.
My goodness what a unique dog! Although it's heartbreaking to see such sadness, it only adds to the joy I know I'll feel when I see pictures of Toby once he starts to realize he's in a safe, caring place. Well done, all involved in caring for him
Toby has come a long way in a short time under the tender care of the staff and volunteers at Newport City Dogs Home.
He hit the walkers list this weekend, and stepped out for a walk in the park with Angel, his bestie, to the delight of our volunteers.
Angel and Toby still have a journey ahead of them until they are ready to be rehomed, and we are very grateful to our very good friends at Dogs Trust Bridgend who have offered to continue with Angel and Toby's care over the coming weeks and we have no doubts in our minds that he will continue to make progress in the care of the Dogs Trust.
Angel and Toby may have left the building, but until they are rehomed they won't leave our thoughts, and we are looking forward to following their progress.
