Love is in the air, because Toby's original owners showed up at the pound, holding hands and wanting their "little baby back." At first they were afraid that Toby might have been put down, since he was there so long. I think, 'Lucky' is what I would change his name to. Mom and dad are back together again and life is good for a Chihuahua/Terrier mix they named Toby. Thank you to all that shared this blog and helped to get Toby a new home.


Will you help save Toby the lovable lap dog?

This young two-year-old Chihuahua/Terrier mix is surprisingly smart, very lovable, and is looking for someones lap to occupy. It's a sad, sad story how Toby ended up in the pound, Toby is a product of a broken home. His owners got a divorce, they divided everything up and they didn't want Toby any more. Sad as it may sound , the silver lining in this story is that the next owners are getting a very sweet and adorable little five pound critter. The down side to this story is, Toby doesn't have much time left.

Toby was a little bit playful as soon as he got to know me better. This KEAN Critter is not so much into the run, jump and play thing, Toby wants to sit and cuddle, thus making him a great lap pet. He is a beautiful black and white patch dog that needs you now.
