More Details

About Toby

He is a sweet boy who is very calm indoors and energetic and happy outdoors. He loves other dogs though sometimes you have to let him meet slowly or he will get over excited. He walks well on a leash knows sit down and up (standing on his hind legs) and corresponding hand signals. He loves people and butt scratches but is very lazy and doesn't play many games like fetch. He will chase you around a park or field though and LOVES treats. He is sensitive about his tail though. He wont bite or anything he will just pull away until you let go or will pout at you.

About Colette

Colette is a very nervous dog. She normal does not bite (unless backed into a corner) if you let her come to you and take it calm and slow with her she will get used to you very quickly and happily. She loves to play.. just not with people if you put her outside and watch from the window she will play with sticks and tennis balls all on her own but if you are in sight she will not. However she loves to play chase if you run around the yard she will chase you and vise versa. Once she knows you she is a very kind and loving dog who walks well on a leash and can follow basic commands (sit, down, wait).
