My Story

This petite guy has had quite the rough life, after recovering from a leg amputation he is looking for a special family to spoil him endlessly! Tobias can take a little time to warm up to new people, but it is well worth the wait. Once he gets to know you, he'll give you all the love you could imagine and will be laying in your lap for some belly rubs  He also enjoys playtime with his favorite stuffed monkey and cow! He would like a quiet home with limited stairs to make getting around as easy as possible, although he does pretty well on all 3. Tobias' perfect family will make him the center of attention and shower him with affection!
