Toby, also known as Toes, or Toby Toes, is an 11 month old, Malinois mix puppy aka Mexican Street Dog. His stars paved the way for his new life in the USA. He was saved from a tied down 4 ft leash his whole young life, by a tourist traveling through Sayulita, Mexico. His plane took him to San Diego airport where he was driven up to Northern California. He does well in cars and just goes to sleep.

Toby is a street smart pup, very healthy and oh - he has discovered the freedom of playing, toys and real yummy delicious food. He loves people and dogs and likes to hold his own leash in his mouth when walking. We keep him super busy with chewies and stuffed kongs. He's highly energetic but does like the naps with his four resident GSD siblings. As you can see, he has an athletic build, smallish in stature and very agile and fast on his feet/toes.

We envision his adopter to be savvy with his puppy playfulness, and be up to speed with teaching him how to be the best dog. He likes to use his nose so scent work might be fun games for him, he needs a very active family/couple that can take long hikes to the mountains for exercise/day trips and to see the beauty of America. Imagine him in your RV or camper on weekends? Long walks during the week? 

Toby is not fazed by loud noises having lived in a noisy City; motorbikes don't bother him. Waves do scare him a little but with all new family members, slow introductions are the best as he is a young innocent pup, and has so much to learn about this beautiful life he has already started experiencing. He's not a fan of water and for now, he doesn't know that cats and livestock are pets, although he is very curious about the miniature goats on the property. He would love to live with a canine sibling that is equally playful.  

Toes is residing in a foster home in Newcastle, CA.
