Toby’s adopted family hope they can reunite him with his brother

16 JULY 2018

Toby is a gorgeous Saluki/lurcher who was adopted earlier this month, and he is settling in quickly with his new family.

“He is becoming more affectionate and trusting by the day,” his new family told us. They are blown away by how gentle and well-mannered he is, saying it feels as though Toby has always been living with them.

Toby is growing into a playful, cheeky and sweet friend. But his family believes he is struggling with being separated from his brother, Tucker, who is still awaiting a home at the ISPCA National Animal Centre.

“He is obsessed with his reflection,” the family said. “We think it could be because he misses his brother Tucker. They look so alike.”

The family said that when Tucker is adopted, they would like to reunite the brothers and plan doggie dates if possible.

In spite of missing Tucker, Toby has found his favourite spots in his home. He loves to lounge on the sofa, or right outside his adopters’ bedroom door.

“It was definitely worth the 3-and-a-half-hour round-trip to meet our new friend,” they said.


Tucker is still waiting patiently for a home. He is loving, eager to please, and deserves a fresh start just like his brother. Could he be the one for you?
