Toby is officially up for adoption! Custody of Toby was awarded to the Houston Humane Society by a judge, and he has had several weeks of rehab at our HHS Animal Wellness Clinic to help put on the weight he lost when he was abandoned in a locked apartment.
This healthy, happy boy is estimated at about 5 – 6 months and is a retriever mix. He will be medium – large when fully grown, and loves going for walks to stretch his legs. He's active, playful, loves squeaky toys, and likes treats. He’s a sweet boy that deserves the very best home.
Abandonment reports, along with cruelty and neglect, can be made online or by calling 713-341-3396.
