Toby is a 2 year old Labrador cross collie and is currently on foster in Cardiff.

The Toby Fact File
Dog status: Very good
Cat status: Will chase, not to be rehomed with cats or livestock
Child status: Good
House training: Perfect
Home alone: Happy for a few hours but would not suit a full time worker
Basic training: Has lovely manners in the house and is working on the basic commands with his foster family

Toby is a mix of two of the most popular breeds in the UK and he has taken on all the good points of both breeds. We believe he is a Labrador cross collie (we do not know for sure as he was picked up as a stray). Like a lab he is loving and loyal and soft as butter with people. He loves company and is good with children and adults alike. Toby has taken the collie's love of play and intelligent, quick mind. He is an active dog who loves a good blast off the lead.

Image

Toby has the collie drive to herd and chase and this shows around small animals so we will not rehome him with cats. Care would also have to be taken around livestock, particularly sheep. His herding drive can be channelled through play, giving him an outlet for the drive and teaching self control behaviours. He would be absolutely ideal for a sport such as agility or flyball.

Toby is very good with other dogs he meets out and about on his walks. If they are running off the lead he can go into herding patterns and chase. His recall is being bombproofed by his foster family to ensure he can be called away if things are getting too exciting in the park!

He is an active dog and loves a good run, he will need a new home where he can get plenty of varied walks to see the sights of the world. He loves to be out and about and loves swimming. Ideally he would be looking for a new owner with a secure garden (he has a good jump!) where he can have a bounce about with his ball.

Image

Toby is good with children and can be rehomed with children aged 6 years plus. However, they would have to be used to large dogs as he can be boisterous when out of the house and he does jump up sometimes which is something his foster family are working on.

Toby has been happy to be left but he does need access to things of his own that he can chew such as an activity toy with food in or strong chew toys. He likes to use his mouth when he is bored (must be the Labrador in him). He does love company and would not be suitable for a full time worker but could suit someone who works part time.

Toby is strong on the lead when he goes out for a walk and his foster home are working on loose lead walking techniques with him which would need to continue in a new home. He also needs work on his recall as he has just had a name change and is excitable outdoors. Care would have to be taken in a new home letting him off lead until he settles and has bonded with his new owners.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Toby is still looking for a new home. His foster home have been working hard with him and his jumping up has vastly reduced now that he is settled and has learnt more appropriate ways to greet.

He loves swimming even in this cold weather and has been enjoying his walks in the snow.
