Meet Tobey!

5 Year-Old ~ Pomeranian

This absolutely adorable little dog is every bit as sweet as he is cute! 

As a Puppy Mill survivor, Tobey was happy to leave his breeding days behind him for a more comfortable, happy life where his needs are at last being met. To start with, Tobey arrived with a mouth full of horribly infected teeth that all needed to be removed. Additionally, he was suffering from a painful condition called Entropian which caused his eyelashes to grow inward creating constant irritation and watering. This was also repaired surgically at the time of his neuter and dental, and he has thankfully recovered beautifully. 

Tobey is currently living with another dog in his Foster Home without any issues. In fact we think he would appreciate having another dog in his forever home as well, though he is still trying to comprehend how to initiate and engage in play, due to his previous lack of socialization. Tobey is quick to learn by following the cues of other dogs, so it would also help him to acclimate more quickly to his forever home to have a canine buddy to help learn the ropes!

Tobey is also learning to walk on leash for the first time and getting better each day, and his housetraining is almost 100%, though he will need a forever family who will continue to be patient but consistent with this as he adjusts to his new environment.

While Tobey has not lived with cats or critters, his Foster Family tell us that he is a very gentle and passive boy, who pays no attention to squirrels or chipmunks outside, so they do feel he would be able to live peacefully with cats or pocket pets. 

Tobey is not crate trained, and any attempt to crate him has caused him great anxiety and distress. So a home where he would not be required to be crated or kept in a pen would be best for Tobey. Ideally he will find an adoptive home where he will not be left on his own for extended periods of time, as he does show some signs of separation anxiety which will likely improve as he settles in and gains more confidence.

Tobey is currently eating two meals a day at set meal times, but he does enjoy soft treats in between. He likes kibble, but it will need to be moistened for him so it is easy for him to chew without teeth. He shows zero signs of resource guarding of food, treats or toys. He is a very quiet dog, and we believe that Tobey may have been devoclalized in his previous life in the puppy mill.

Overall, Tobey is incredibly sweet, curious, and gentle. He has never shown any signs of aggression, and just loves to be loved! Please keep in mind that as a Pomeranian, Tobey will require regular grooming to keep his coat healthy and free of mats.
