Toby is ready to jump into his new life. He is a 40 lb. handsome brown herding dog mix. Since coming to the shelter he has been working with a trainer and loves the work (like most dogs of his type). He is playful and loving but he needs direction and a strong, positive leader. We think he is about a year old so still very much a puppy and will need a person that is committed to continuing his training. The perfect home would be with people that understand positive training and would incorporate Toby into all aspects of their lives. This is not a dog you can park in the backyard. He needs to be engaged. He is best suited to an adult home due to his exuberance and puppy behaviors. He loves other dogs but his play style is a bit rough and will need work. He understands and responds to at least 10 commands and is always up for learning more. We believe he would make a fabulous running partner. This dog could also excel at any of the dog sports - agility, Frisbee, obedience, or freestyle dance. Toby is one smart dog that needs a smart owner.
