About Toby

Meet Toby, an approximately 3-year-old, black and tan, male Doberman with a docked tail and natural ears. Toby is the sweetest, most people-friendly Doberman we’ve had the pleasure of fostering.

He’s calm in the house, and happiest sitting next to you and getting pets or laying near you while he sucks on his dog blanket. He is a very people-oriented dog. He did well-meeting visitors in our house, including an 11-year-old girl.

He sleeps quietly through the night in a crate in our bedroom. When we leave the house, Toby is free to roam our finished basement. He leaves shoes alone, has been non-destructive around furniture, and does very well on a set potty schedule.

Toby doesn’t seem to need a high level of exercise but is always happy to go on walks. He walks well on a leash until he sees squirrels and then he pulls to get closer to them. Because he has a prey drive he may not do well in homes with small pets. He doesn’t show interest in other dogs while we are out on walks so areas with lots of dogs shouldn’t be a problem.

Toby travels well in the car. He curls up on the back seat in our dog hammock, clipped to the seatbelt. He also did very well at his vet visit.

Toby is approximately 65 pounds and needs to gain about 10 pounds. We think he will do best as an only dog but he may be ok with another calm dog. Toby has perfected the Doberman lean, as he leans against his foster humans looking for pets. Toby is very loving and is going to make a great companion.
