Hi! I’m Toby. I’m a 3 year old sable, fit, strong boy. I weigh about 95 pounds. Yeah! Big-I know! I totally know how to do the GSD breed proud though. I have excellent house manners. I don’t jump on people and will greet friends with soft kisses. I’m very gentle even with children and older folks. My foster mom says I’m a very sweet boy.

I’m fine with other dogs so a dog brother or sister would be fun. I will back down from any arguments and will take my cues from the more experienced dogs.…No cats though; I don’t like them at all.

I love to hang out with my family and I wait patiently while they have dinner then settle down with them while they watch TV.

I am a really fast learner and will work hard to please you. That’s why some obedience classes would be super fun and I know I would do great! I’m gentle taking food so we can even use treats for training…if you don’t mind me making a little suggestion…..yum!

I love car rides and am always game to go see new places or just hang out while doing errands.

I also really like nature walks and do well on leash. My foster mom uses a sensory harness with me when we go for walks.

I don’t like being left alone but if you have to go to work or something, I understand and am trustworthy in the house. I even know how to use a door dog. 

I enjoy grooming- baths are totally fine and I LOVE to be brushed. I also enjoy putting my feet in my water bowl (haha) and walking in streams. Ahhh….the simple pleasures.

I’m pretty brave. Can’t think of anything that scares me.

I’d love to be your best friend and companion and will work hard to learn what’s expected of me in my new home. I can’t wait for someone to love me and take good care of me….and I’ll do the same for you if you pick me!

For now, I’m staying with my foster family in Novato.
