About Toby

German Shepherd Dog (GSD / Alsatian)
2 to 5 Years


Toby is a gorgeous 3 year old German Shepherd, He is a strong boy but a big softy at heart. Toby loves toys and is learning to exchange and play with his carers. He also loves a ride in the car, convincing him to get out is fun! His new owners will need to be prepared that he is a strong boy on lead and will benefit from lead training in the home.

Type of home needed

Toby is looking for a fairly active home who are used to bigger breeds, He sometimes forgets his size and likes to try and give cuddles. Toby has some basic training but his new owners must be willing to continue his training in the home, he is a big bouncy lad at times. Once settle Toby could be left for a few hours in the home, hes happy to chill out when its peaceful and munch on his chews.

More about me

Toby could potentially live with the right dog, he can be intense on greetings but playful once he knows them. Children in the home will need to be 16 years or and used to large dogs. Toby is just a sweetheart who has so much love and potential to share in the right home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Toby, who is based at Newbury. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you will receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
