Toto - Swindon


Meet Toto. He is 4 years old and has been through the hellish Breasta shelter but thankfully not lost his trust in people. 

Toto thought he’d found his forever home but sadly he has been returned to the kennels. He has learnt how open doors and escaped from the house. The family don’t feel locking the door is an option so he has come back to us. 

While Toto was in the home it became apparent that he very much bonded with one person and showed some guarding behaviours towards others when around them. Managed and introduced properly (away from his property on a walk) he can settle but new owners will need to take this into account. He would benefit from a multiple person, adult only household where his care is provided by everyone to minimise him picking out a favourite person. He can get over excited quickly which can lead to him mouthing too, this can be managed by giving him a toy to play with. 

He travels well in the car and and mixed happily with his owners, son’s dog. He could possibly share his home but can be reactive on walks, this may have been an extension of him guarding his person. 

Toto is a loving chap towards his family but needs boundaries put in place. He would benefit from a quiet home with someone willing to work us brain and get him putting some of his extra energy to good use. If you think you might be the one for him please get in contact.
