Toby came into our care from a breeder with two other girl Dachshunds.

Very overwhelmed that first day

His first few days

He has obviously been socialised with people and other dogs but has never been taken out.

He has settled into his foster carers very quickly and is proving to be a very sweet boy.

He asks to go outside to go to the toilet and is happily sleeping in his crate at night.

He loves the cuddles, he met the grandchildren at the weekend and the rest of the family and was a bit barky to begin with but soon settled down and was friendly with everyone sitting on people’s lap, etc.

He really is still a baby bless him playing with his toys

Chasing the ball

His foster carer has tried to take him out for a walk but he refused as it is such early days we will build him up slowly to get used to the harness and going for walks.

But so far he is proving to be a very lovely boy just needs a bit of time and patience with people who have had experience of ex-breeding dogs or similar before and understand about introducing them into the big wide world out there.

Getting used to treats

We will continue what we are doing and update his profile again – he will need an experienced home because the above would be best suited to adult only home as he has so much to get used to and needs people with the time.

I think preference will be for him to go with other dogs at this point.

He has now been neutered, started his vaccinations, flea/wormed.
