We are looking for a new family for Toby, a six-year-old collie cross. Toby was initially adopted over 4 years ago and recently returned to us because he has become fearful in certain situations and this causes him to snap. This is not something that happened for no reason. Toby was attacked by another dog, which resulted in him becoming anxious and fearful. This is something that now he is in foster again, is dramatically improving. You would need to continue to help Toby once he has been adopted, training classes would be ideal to keep up Toby's confidence in the outside world so he once again learns the world is safe and he doesn't need to protect himself and be on guard.
Toby is great with kids and has lived with them in his previous home. We would like him to go to a family with older dog savvy kids, who understand that Toby needs time and patience to settle. He is fantastic with other dogs, but will chase cats.
Toby really deserves to have his forever home. Everything that caused him to come back was not his fault and can be easily managed.
