[rehomed!] ADOPT: Tobey the black/tan Papillon

A smiling, happy fella, Tobey is a lovely young black/tan Papillon (cross?) who was found wandering near an MRT for days. Many people passed by thinking he was lost and left him alone but after a few days with no sign of the owner returning, a compassionate lady took him in. Poor fella was so hungry and thirsty and relieved help came, he immediately sat down solemnly and gave her a "Paw" to thank her.

We call him Tobey or Mr. Tobey as he has such perfect manners, offering his paw to everyone he meets as in "How do you do, Kind Sir". Tobey is an unsterilised papillon, estimated to be between 3 to 5 years old, and with his lovely butterfly ears and smile, he makes such a welcome sight that a first instinct would be to pick him up and hug him tight He is docile, gentle and a meek little boy, still rather shy as fresh from his rescue but has settled in very well with the fosterer's dogs. He is thin and his fur condition is not as sleek nor shiny as it should be, probably from neglect and poor nutrition but nothing that love and time won't heal.

We are looking for a home, preferably with experience looking after dogs (small breed) for Tobey, with a condition that the Adopter will bring him to a vet for his vaccination, checks and sterilisation. Alternatively we can arrange to do all the necessary but adopter will cover the expenses (receipts provided).

Please email to and provide us with as much information as you can so that we can get to know you better and a contact for us to get back to you. The more the background information you provide, the less we need to ask.

Make today a Tobey day - Mr. Tobey to be exact.
