Toto ~ in New York
Looking for a Home
Toto is a young silky who was turned in to the Humane Society because his family got a new puppy and they felt he was playing too rough with the puppy.
Toto's smart and affectionate; he will jump into your lap and give kisses. He involves his whole body when he's giving love - which is all of the time. He's only about 13 months old, and as young silkys are, Toto is a high energy dog and very active. He responds well to limits on his behavior and he is a "quick study". However, we recommend that he go to obedience class (a good idea for all dogs!).
Toto weighs 15 pounds. He is only slightly overweight - he is just a large silky. He is tall and has a big structure. When his coat grows out a little, he will be quite attractive. He's a nice looking dog. He gets along very well with the two other silkys at his foster home. Toto does not seem to like younger children, so he won't be placed in a home that has young children.
He is familiar with the crate and is house trained. When Margie, his foster mom, picked him up at the shelter, she told him to get in the crate and he went right in. Toto is neutered, up to date on his shots, and on heartworm prevention.
Margie says, "I think he'll make a good pet for someone. He needs training and discipline and love. He will respond well to all of them."
We have a very strong preference to avoid shipping, so we will first consider homes where shipping would not be necessary. Toto is in New York at this time. His new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him, and there will be an adoption fee or donation of $200.
If you are interested in adopting Toto, please fill out our on-line application, which is at https://silkyrescue.tripod.com/appform.htm. If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email SilkyRescue@yahoo.com.
