    Default Guess who has a new addition to the family!!

    Meet Toby He is a 6 year old rescue that we just adopted!! Well, we were fostering him, but soon realised that he had lots of health issues, some mental issues (he has quite a tragic background) and I just felt, no one would want to adopt him with all the medical investment required or they might not know how to handle his "special needs", but I know we can handle it and Brooky is SUCH a comfort to him, is teaching him so much and has even taught him how to play with his first toy. At the end of the day, I know he needs Brooky and finds such comfort in her, she is his rock...so he is staying!

    He got a bunch of teeth pulled yesterday which were rotted and infected and his K9's were completely worn down from years of cage chewing. He is deaf, but Brooky always goes and gets him when I ask and he has grade three luxating patella's and will need those operated on in the next 6 months. He is also deathly afraid of crates and baby gates, but seems okay if Brooky is near and we have covered the baby gate with a blanket and even though Brooky is crate trained and loves her crate, we removed those and that fixed his fright. He sleeps a lot and seems older than his years, but we are slowly bringing him around. We have already got him down 3 kg!! He is a health weight now with no heart murmur either

    Welcome home Toby!

    Blessings on little Toby and you for taking care of him. What a sweet face he has. It's nice to know he has a new best friend and a cushy life in front of him.

    What a beautiful picture of both of them. You sure are taking on a lot, but I'm sure with your love and support, he will thrive and be a wonderful and loving companion. Keep us posted on his progress.

    Wow...Toby's luck changed when he fell in to your life. It sounds like the poor little guy has had such a sad start thank heavens he's now yours.
    It will be interesting to hear how he will now blossom and become what every cavalier hould be.

    Well done to you and Brooky.
