Toby is a male Shih Tzu mix that is about 3 years old and weighs about 15 pounds. He loves playing with balls and stuffed toys, walks well on a leash and plays well with other dogs. But he does not share food with others, so he needs to be fed in his crate, and he would prefer a calm home with experienced adult pet owners.
