Meet Toby!

This silly guy finally threw in his running shoes last week and we were fortunate enough to grab him. Toby is a 4 year old Shepherd mix who has been around the block and then some!! This poor guy has two different microchips and a license from three different people, the most recent dating back to 2012 and no one claimed him. We couldn’t bare to send Toby back to the shelter, where he began his journey 4 years ago, so he is now a Marley’s Mutt!! This little guy is a riot, he’s one of the happiest dogs I’ve ever met, which boggles me given the life he’s led thus far. He would be a great comp anion to anyone looking for some love and laughter in life. If you are interested in adopting Toby you can fill out an application below.
