Other information (optional):
Toby is doing very well in foster care, where he is starting to learn that the big outside world is not too bad afterall. Toby has not previously been good with young children and so will need a new home where there is none and with no visiting grandchildren. He will need structure and routine and good quality exercise, in quiet areas to begin with to get him further socialised.
He is very intelligent and picks things up very quickly with positive training with treats as rewards. He will need a quiet dog experienced home where he will have good quality leadership and direction and where he will continue to be taken to positive dog socialisation classes.
Toby is presently living with two dogs in his foster home, one male Staffie X and one female Staffie. He is fine to live with other dogs as long as they are people and dog friendly outside the home.
