Watch Tobo’s video and see how gentle and loving this huge American bulldog is. He sits just loving the petting that he’s receiving from a volunteers. His big tongue hangs down as he soaks in the love. He’s calm, obedient, affectionate and knows basic commands. He can also be goofy and playful at times. Those interacting with him found out that he loves to get his ears rubbed. The volunteers love both him and his kennel mate, Chelsey. Tobo and Chelsey have been at the shelter for over six weeks. That’s a long time at a shelter where, on average, ten dogs are killed every day.
Also unfortunate is the fact that they are both housed in the notorious west wing of this shelter where few people go to look for adoptable dogs. Often, there is no one at all viewing the dogs in this part of the shelter. The dogs go unnoticed and unadopted — even the best of them, like these two.
Chelsey is a pit bull mix, which make her adoption more difficult. Because of breed specific legislation in Miami-Dade County, she must be adopted by someone who lives out of the county. Yet she is just as sweet and lovable as Tobo. She loves squeaky toys. Both dogs get along with other dogs.
Tobo is ID#A1761371. He is listed as a three-year-old American bulldog. Chelsey is ID #A1759707. She is around two years old. There may be more information on their Facebook threads. Here is the main thread for both dogs (she was called Princess previously). Here is another Facebook thread for both of them (with an adorable picture).
Both dogs are at Miami Dade Animal Services, 7401 NW 74th St, Miami, Florida, 33166. The shelter is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
