Male | 5.5 yrs | 60 lbs
This hunk was starved by his rescuer’s neighbors. His sister, Doja, didn’t make it and died from starvation a couple weeks before FINALLY Animal Control did their job (which they had not which is why Doja, the other dog died) and took Tory off the property.
He was heartworm positive and 2 out of 9 on the scale of condition. He was emaciated. Charges were finally brought on the owners and, although more a slap on the wrist, the prosecuting attorney got the money owed to the vet and to us for his care since arrival to take care of the heart worm treatment, etc. Tory was very food guarding and so starved he still, to this day, has to eat out of a slow feeder bowl. But since he knows he is going to be fed, he has learned a bit more patience and that we will not take his food away… He has gained 35+ lbs and is just as handsome as can be. He did develop some anxious stranger behavior but is learning how to deal with new situations beautifully by living within a pack and meeting many new people while he is in his training/doggie daycare facility in Virginia Beach! He is a love bug and LOVES and is respectful of most other dogs. He can be a little pushy and if the other dog is good with that? It’s all crazy play.
