|Please read Toby's story below to find out more about this sweet little boy.
Sweet Toby came to Yorkie Friends Rescue on November 5, 2010. He had been a little stray in
Tennessee, and weighed only 2.5 pounds when found by a kind policeman who carried him to a shelter
dedicated to finding homes or rescues for all of their dogs and cats, even the old and/or sick ones. They
cared for him and got him up to 3 pounds by the time we took him. They gave him his shots, had him
neutered, and had to have what was left of his teeth removed. They nursed him back to health and found
us for him. After about a month in his foster home, he was up to 4.5 pounds.
When he came to YFR, he had a fully mature cataract in his right eye. We raised the $2000 for his cataract
surgery, thanks to generous donors and a $1000 donation from his foster parents. His surgery was on
December 22, 2010. His eye doctor estimated his age at about 11 years.
With perfect vision, Toby was in great health until a serious kidney issue arose in March of 2011. He had
to spend several days in the hospital, but was returned to good health, although he will always have
impaired kidneys, and need blood level rechecks every 3-4 months to be sure his condition remains
He also requires eye rechecks by his eye doctor every 3 months, as well as 2 kinds of eye drops that he
will need for life. Of course, he also must have regular flea and heartowrm medication.
We all thought that someone would want to adopt him right away, but only 2 or 3 applications came in for
him during the next several months, and none that were the right home for Toby, so after more than a year
in foster care, YFR made Toby a permanent foster with us. He will remain in his present foster home for
the remained of his life, and YFR will take care of him. At more than 12 years old and more than 18
months in his foster home, it would be cruel to expect him to adjust to yet another home.
In addition to donations to take care of the currently outstanding vet bills, we need sponsors for Toby to
make regular donations to take care of his eye and bloodwork rechecks, eye medications, and
flea/heartworm prevention that are regular expenses.
Toby is such a happy little boy. Please help him.
