Toby is a small one year old Pit Bull Terrier mix that we pulled from the Newark shelter. He weighs in at only 28 lbs but has a very big heart.

Toby1He is special since he was born with the ligaments missing in the bottom portion of his right front leg, causing the lower portion of the leg to sway forward and act as a foot. But don’t feel sorry for this little guy. He was born this way and he gets around very easily by hopping like a bunny when he runs, using his right leg mostly to assist his left…and he can run! He walks just like all other dogs with a slight limp. The leg also has an enlarged paw cushion/pad just above his paw, which protects his elbow from being scraped against the ground and it works perfectly. He has absolutely zero pain from his condition which is non-progressive and is otherwise perfectly healthy.

Toby is great with people and other dogs. He is also neutered and up to date with all his shots.

Toby has a lot to offer. He is a very happy, friendly and loving boy! All he needs now is a place he can call home and someone to share his life with.
