Don't overlook this great dog!  Toby is 8 years old and you would never guess it!  His great size, at 40 lbs, is due to being part pug and part lab.  He is super smart and sweet and loves to cuddle and play.  In January of this year, he was surrendered by an older gentleman, in Texas, with another dog, because he was no longer able to care for himself or his dogs.  Unfortunately, Toby's canine friend was euthanized at the animal shelter where they were surrendered.  Toby made it to a foster home in Texas for 6 months, where they loved him dearly.  With up to 9 foster dogs there, and 4 of their own, they weren't able to keep him because he wanted to be the alpha dog but one of their own dogs already had that role.  He doesn't love puppies or high energy dogs in his face, but otherwise, he gets along great with other dogs, and really needs to be in a home with a companion.  He currently is an only dog in his foster home and he definitely would prefer to have more human and canine companionship.  He plays long and hard at doggy day care (see his record from Tailwaggers in the photos) with all of the buddies he's made there and is very sociable.  He would be very happy in a home with a couple or a family (with older children) with another dog (or dogs) (as long as he could be alpha male).  Do you have a dog that needs a friend?  Toby is your guy!  He really an awesome dog and good boy! show less
