TOBY IS ONE LOVING STAFFORD FROM A LOCAL STRAY KENNELS
This little peach of a Stafford is Toby. We collected him from a Yorkshire stray kennels on 1st March where he had waited a long time to find a home. Toby is very comical, very confident and a real gent. We love him. He loves his walks and most of all he adores human attention. Due to Toby finding kennels very stressful we found him a lovely foster home with a great lady named Mirelle. Toby has typical Stafford traits which are wanting cuddles and lots of human interaction and attention. He follows his mum Mirelle everywhere and has cuddles on the sofa and now sleeps on the bed. Oops! Mirelle gave in to Toby's needs and we feel this is a hard one to go back on. Mirelle bathes Toby due to his past of flakey skin. He adores having a soak in the tub and he has coconut oil massages for a poor conditioned coat. Toby can be stubborn at times but responses well to commands. He loves food, but is calm and patient and will wait until he has permission to eat. He is a smart cookie.
Foster mum Mirelle works part time and Toby settles well on his own. He has a dog walker who comes at lunchtimes and Toby enjoys his exercise with her and some obedience lessons. Toby's preferred home is as an only dog. On arrival he would bark at other dogs and is particularly worried by larger hounds. He will still bark at other dogs however he will now sit and take a treat while other dogs pass by. This handsome Stafford is very loving, playful and enjoys obedience interactive games in safe places. He sits, stays, gives paw, gets down on his tummy and responds to recall very easily. He is currently learning how to roll on command. Toby is now amazing at walking to heel on a loose lead and he seems to enjoy this and becomes very calm and patient.
THE HOME TOBY NEEDS
Toby is looking for a home with lots of attention, love and company. We feel he could be left for a few hours every day without problems and would be happy to snooze away a few hours on the sofa. Toby has waited a while to find a home and the sad fact is that middle aged dogs are often the last to find a special someone. Toby needs company and loves attention. Although he is confident and will sometimes bark for attention he has a fabulous nature and oodles of personality. He is a comedy Stafford. All this and more in a pocket sized handsome package in the shape of a special dude. Toby is great company and has lots of love to give. He would be perfect for an active family who enjoy walks or hikes and have older children. Toby needs a quieter home environment and calm so a home with young children would not be suitable. He is a very clever chap and understands lots of words. Please do not say 'Walk' or 'Cats' out loud or you will have to deal with a comedy Stafford's
