Tobias 2017 aka Toby

My name is Toby aka Tiny Toby! I am a 4.5 month old puppy with a tail. I came to BRBR via a owner surrender to a shelter in NC.

I am currently living with my foster family in Raleigh, NC.  They are really nice people. My foster family really loves me.  They constantly remark how cute I am and it’s hard to be mad at me.  I share my house with two skin teen agers and two 7 yr old boxers Potter and Lucy. I love them both and they play with me  They have mentored me and showed me the way but I still have my mischievous puppy behavior. I think it is safe to say they tolerate me.

I am so happy all the time and full of energy.  I am small stature for a boxer that is how I got the nickname “Tiny Toby”.  When I compete for attention,  I jump sometimes.    My people don’t allow me on the furniture, but I still try,  I am only allowed on the bed and my people let me sleep with them.   My people always try to walk or run me to make sure I am tired.  I do well in my crate although it is not my favorite place. I am in my crate when my people leave for work..  I am dog door trained,  100% potty trained, and am EXCELLENT on a leash. Did I mention I totally ignore yard birds ( chickens) and cats.  What is not to love about me?
