Tolliver is a shy but very sweet 1-2 year-old Terrier mix male who is one of six dogs who came to us from a home where there were too many dogs. An elderly man who lived in a rural area was constantly having dogs abandoned on his property and things soon got out of control. We think that Tolliver, Tango, Gretta, and Garbo are all littermates who were likely born there. Fortunately, the man reached out to the shelter for help as he was overwhelmed with caring for them all. Tolliver is a very sweet and loving dog but is very shy and timid in new situations. Having lived with many other dogs his whole life, we do want to place him in a home with another dog as he feels most comfortable with other dogs. He has done very well with crate training in his foster home and with another dog in his home to model, he should pick up the housetraining rules quickly. Tolliver is just learning what walking on a leash is all about as that was a completely new experience when he came to us. He will need a kind and patient family who will give him time to adjust to his new home. In return, you will have a very loyal and devoted companion for years to come. Tolliver weighs about 25 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Tolliver. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
