Toby is a 6 year old Alberta boy that has been surrendered to rescue so that he could receive the care he needed. His Mom was a single Mom with 4 children and she just could not manage his vet bills. He has severe skin issues that, without proper care sadly progressed to a serious condition (see photos March 2015).Toby has a great temperament and is very sweet, and even with his skin issues, he is likes to play with his new Westie house mate! Toby travelled all the way from his home in southern Alberta up to Edmonton with a lovely lady from Windy City Canine Rescue. On Toby’s travel day to Edmonton, Alberta experienced one of their spring storms. It was a long day as they were faced with bad roads and highway closures and weren’t sure if they could continue. They almost turned back! Toby must have had a Guardian Angel looking over him because he did make it safe and sound! He is currently in foster care with Westie Rescue of Canada and will receive all the vet care that he needs to get his issues under control. Once his skin issues are on the mend, Toby will be available for adoption.
An update on Toby (September 2015)
Toby is doing extremely well. Kudos to Dr. Abby in Edmonton for his great care and to Toby's great foster Mum for her care and attention in bringing this little guy around. A lot of dedication was required, especially in the beginning. This included bathing 3 times per week, frequent visits to the vet, and of course the right medication. Bathing is now down to once a week and his meds are greatly reduced, some even eliminated. He still is not 100% but has made huge strides in his recovery. Check out Toby's pictures. Watch for more updates.
