A dog who displayed signs of fear when he was picked up by an animal control officer is being given no chance to be adopted. The dog, dubbed “Toby,” was scared when the dog catcher slipped a noose around his neck and hoisted him into an animal control vehicle – the fear he showed has resulted in a virtual death sentence.
On Friday afternoon, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Nueces County, TX: Dogs in need of Rescue, wrote of the urgency of Toby’s situation:
Toby is a handsome young lab mix. He was scared of the dog catcher so he got labeled “fearful” and he is being killed ON his review date meaning Toby had the legal THREE days! To find a family! We can still help Toby! He needs a firm adopter or rescue tag by 10 p.m. TONIGHT or he DIES at 8.m. Tomorrow!
Heavy networking needs to be done RIGHT NOW in order for Toby to have a chance to live.
Toby: A286791, male, 2 years, 58 pounds
