Save the Tails adoptable dog of the day!
Adoptable Toby’s love for life is infectious! He’s a go anywhere, do anything kind of dog. Walkies? Yes! Play fetch? Yes! Go for a run? Yes yes! Smell the flowers? Yes!
Toby is pure happy fun in a big 70 lb. 2 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix package. His adorable stub of a tail never stops wagging. He’s great with all people and older kids. He’s too big and goofy to be around fragile little kids. Toby likes cats but the don’t like him back.
Save the Tails President Lisa Carter says, “Toby is truly an awesome dog! The family for him will be an active one! He'll settle in a year but for now, he needs to go for a serious run daily, hike on the weekends, good sized fenced yard, maybe a dog to play with but it's not necessary if you take him for play dates.” Toby has been working with a trainer and has all of the commands down pat. He’s happy to perform them for you and so proud when you tell him he’s a good boy! He’s happy to do anything that pleases you. Toby would be ideal with an active family to take him on limitless adventures.
Toby needs a fenced in yard. He is good on leash, crate trained, housebroken, UTD on vaccines/preventatives, dewormed and microchipped. He needs regular exercise and a real fenced in yard (no invisible fences for this boy). To meet Toby in person, email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment. You’ll be glad you did! #adoptabledog#dogoftheday#rhodesianridgeback#rhodesianridgebackmix#bigdoglover#busybee#lovebug#lovestoplay#loveslife#dogsofinstaworld#dogs#restonva#viennava#leesburgva#dogrescue#happydog#northernva
Remember how anxious, Xoltan, our #belgianshepherd was in his crate when he first came in? He was pacing, circling around, whining, howling, and panting very intensely. He was the epitome of stress.
We are helping Xoltan build up his independence through lots of duration work (place with a down and chin command), both in the room with us and without, and lots of down with chin in his crate. We want to help him learn a new association with the crate, one of a calm and relaxing place.
This video also features Harley, the #sharpeimix , and Jack the #rhodesianridgebackmix , who are still working on relaxing fully in their crates. #confidentcanines#calmdogs#balanceddogs#hunstvilleal#huntsvillealabama
