Doby's debut was a bit delayed due to an infection he got from his neuter. He's all fine now and is staying on with his foster parents until he gets adopted.
Here's his profile from his foster:
Please meet Doby! He has come along way in the past two months. Doby was brought into TAS as a stray. He went through the regular TAS vetting where he was sent to the vet to be neutered. Doby developed a horrible infection from the surgery and was in sooo much pain he could hardly sit. He had to wear a cone and was very uncomfortable in his cage. He had trouble eating with his cone on so he ended up losing a lot of weight. He was so sad in the shelter.
TAS felt he would do much better in a foster home where he could be monitored throughout his healing process and get that loving tender care. Within a month - Doby was a completely different dog. His foster mom has fallen in love with him. He is finally coneless and his infection is completely gone. He has the sparkle back in his eye and most importantly has gained all the weight he had lost back! He is an extremely happy, sweet dog with a gentle disposition that loves the company of people (owners and guests alike). He loves to play and gets along with dogs, cats and children alike.
Doby is a doberman breed mix, therefore he is smaller than a regular doberman. He has one small white patch on his chest. Doby is between one and a half and two years old and still has a lot of his puppy energy. He loves walks and off leash dog parks. He would be ideally suited to an individual or a family that has the time daily to give him the exercise he needs, a large outdoor property or the resources to invest in a dog walker in the city.
In the home, Doby is well behaved. He is not territorial, no chewing on furniture or barking at noises. He knows all basic commands, listens well and is extremely trainable for an individual that can be consistent with him.
Doby’s name was given to him in his foster home, after the loyal yet clumsy Harry Potter character.
Doby will make a great loyal and loving companion. Please consider giving Doby his forever home. He will remain with his foster mommy until being adopted. If you are interested in viewing Doby please contact TAS volunteer Ashley Hyslop at: ashley_hyslop at hotmail dot com, or 647 458 0220. All screening will be done by a TAS employee. He is currently being fostered in a downtown Toronto neighbourhood.
Doby is being fostered offsite from Toronto Animal Services South but will be available for meet and greets at the shelter if you request to see him.
