Adopt-a-Pet: Toby the terrier mix
When we first saw the photo of Toby (ID# A4060857), an adoptable male terrier mix at the Baldwin Park animal shelter, we felt our hearts skip a beat. That face! Those ears! How, we wondered, could his owner have given him up? We'll never know, but what we do know is that this sweet-faced fellow needs a new home.
About Toby: He weighs less than 10 pounds, so he's definitely on the small side -- but don't let his diminutive stature fool you. This little guy is curious and independent, according to the Baldwin Park shelter's head volunteer, Ric Browde. He's also "extremely sweet and gentle" with people, Browde says, and gets along with other dogs like a champ.
For more information: Meet Toby in person at the Baldwin Park shelter, 4275 N. Elton, Baldwin Park, or call (626) 962-3577 with his ID number to learn more about him. Check out a video of him in action after the jump!
UPDATE: Toby has been adopted; congratulations, Toby!
