Toshi is a young male shepherd mix, approximately 1 yr old, 36 lbs who recently entered our foster care program. His foster family recently sent this update on this great guy!”Toshi is an energetic guy. He is very excitable and loving, which I was not expecting. He loves to run and play with toys. He has the biggest loving brown eyes that melt your heart. He is learning commands such as sit and down. He loves lying on his back and getting belly rubs, although any type of affection works! He howls when you come home as if to say welcome home come get me! I have zero medical concerns for him. He is learning to get his teeth brushed and ears cleaned. He is supplemented with liquid glucosimine for joint and overall strength. He will chase balls etc…but we’re still learning to return it. He is very good on walks and has good leash manners. Very attentive with squirrels etc… Very good on car rides too. My yard backs onto the school yard. He at first was barking at all the excitement but after a week is accustomed to the kids. Altough he has never been in close contact with anyone under the age of 12. He is amazing with my dogs.”
