Toby

Meet Toby, the latest member of our household.

 

Technically, Toby is not ours, but we might try to find a way to not return him to his humans.

 

Toby has a dislocated hip. He drags one back leg behind him as he struggles to be with Na or me, wherever we are.

 

We took Toby to the closest vet, who manipulated the hip ball&socket joint back into place, and who says there is a good chance recovery will be almost 100% if he gets well looked after. So we told the neighbours, who own him, that we will look after Toby until he is recovered.

 

Toby is about 7 weeks old and, according to the vet, has all the characteristics of a pure bred Pit Bull...this causes me to wonder what the circumstances are that led to Toby being in The Village. Pit Bulls are not common dogs in Thailand.

Toby is a hansom dog Ray and it's wonderful that you and Na are taking such good care of him...

pit bulls have a bad reputation... but i believe that it is caused by the way that they are treated by their masters... treat him with the same love as you do with youre other animals and he will be as gentle as a lamb....petersmile
Ray: It took about 1 day until he had totally taken control of us, Peter...it seems there is no hope for us at all! smile
He has a cute face... I hope you get to keep him.
Ray: I am not really a dog person, Jacquelyn, and would have put a Pit Bull at the bottom of the list of dogs I might tolerate as a family member. However, circumstances don't always follow my plan.

Toby spends a lot of time training me, and seems patient and good natured when I mess up...

Oh, I like to read your narrative about Toby - he feels well at your houshold - I like him, although I fear Pit Bulls.
Ray: He is a delightful puppy, Philine, and should grow into a delightful adult if he is treated well. I don't share the popular view that Pit Bulls are not good family pets.

Aaah... Poor little chap. He seems to know a mug - I mean a caring person - when he saw one.hopefullynwith the right training, he can turn into a friendly dog rather than some flesh-tearing monster.
Ray: If we get to keep him, Alan, I am confident he will be a wonderful family pet.

Well let's hope he recovers!
Ray: I may be imagining it, Chris, but he does already seem to be making some attempts to use the disabled leg.
Poor Toby. I trust he will recover soonest. Pit Bulls are as good natured dogs as any other ones, depending on the way they have been educated Ray!
Ray: I share your view on this, Richard.
I am pleased to know he will make a good recovery. I suppose Toby looks like he is quite alert and active. Love his eyes, Ray
Ray: He is active, playful and friendly, Ayush...and tries very hard even at games that really require 4 functioning legs.
Attention, chien féroce !
Ray: Ha Ha.

Toby déchire que la noix de coco à part avec ses dents de bébé, Martine.
He is 7 weeks old and I do hope he has a long and playful life ahead of him. He will have no problems with the ladies, I think.
Ray: He is a handsome youngster, Ayush.
You need to be careful with that one, Ray - they were banned in the uk under the 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act and in the USA are responsible for a significant proportion of attacks on humans, especially children.
Ray: I am studying up on the challenges, Tom.
He is very appealing. I think Pit bulls are banned here ,b being classed as dangerous dogs....dangerous owners is usually the real problem
Ray: I feel you might be correct about that, Bill.
how good of you to take him in..
Ray: We seem to be suckers for maimed critters, Larry.
You may have to get a special zoo license soon, especially if people start looking in at your macros of insects and believe instead that they are large exotic animals.
Ray: That is an idea, Mary.
