German Shepherd XTobyDogThis is Toby; he is a German Shepherd cross who was brought to the Bath Cats & Dogs Home in June 2004, by an RSPCA Inspector, very emaciated and in extremely poor condition.

Toby is a one and a half-year-old black and tan castrated male dog. He is a very friendly affectionate lad with a wonderful temperament. He loves going for walks, is very good off lead and returns immediately when called even if he is bounding around the field. He is a very playful, gentle and sociable creature. He is very clean in his kennel, well behaved and settles quickly when required. He is a laid-back chap that is very loving and tactile and will shake a paw. He has been under the vets supervision since arriving here, having twice weekly baths to improve his skin condition. He is good with other dogs – perhaps needs a few manners! possibly good with cats - would definitely be worth a try and probably okay with children under 10.

Can you offer Toby a new loving home where he can get all the love and attention that he deserves?

Toby was featured on the breakfast programme on BBC1 on 14th July 2004
Staffordshire Bull Terrier XUptonDogThis is Upton: he is a Staffordshire Bull terrier x that was brought back to the Bath Cats & Dogs Home in April 2004 after only a week as his owner couln't cope. Previosly he was also brought back in January 2004, as he was over protective of his food when the children where around. However, he has shown no signs of food aggression whilst back at the Home and will sit and wait for his food and his animal carer has been able to take it away from him at any point.

Upton is a two-year-old, tan castrated male dog. He is a very sweet natured lad that can be nervous of men at first, but once he knows you will make a lovely friendly companion. He is a loyal lad that is still very young and loves to play and be cuddled. He is an affectionate chap that doesn’t like being left so is looking for someone that is at home most of the time but as he travels well would be happy to accompany his new people everywhere and anywhere. He loves going for walks however is not yet brilliant at walking to heal but as he is a young lad some training would be of benefit to him but is good off the lead as his recall is good. He is good with other canine companions but not with the feline variety and would need to be rehomed where children are in their teens as he is too dominant for younger ones.

Can you offer Upton a new home? Can you give our sweet natured lad another start in life?
