You know that the smallest dogs have the biggest personalities, and Toby (ID 605857) is no different! This 2-year-old, 18lb scruffball has enough energy and spunk for 2 dogs!

JR Dunn - Toby- Diamond in the Ruff

Toby is a playful little puppy who definitely needs an active home. He is very choosy about his companions, though, which is why it is taking him longer than normal to find his forever home. We recommend that he be the only pet in the household, and we also recommend no small children. However, he LOVES people, loves to play, and loves treats.

As sometimes happens with small dogs, Toby could benefit from some obedience classes – but, because he will do ANYTHING for a treat, we believe he’s going to be a fast learner. So, if you’re looking for a smart, spunky companion who would love nothing more than to spend a day playing with you, Toby is your boy!

Our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers believe even Diamonds in the Ruff are beautiful – especially in the right setting. And, that’s all Toby needs! The JR Dunn family is full of dog lovers, too, which is why they’ve sponsored Toby’s adoption fee. How great is that? Stop on by and meet this fluffy fella today!

About Diamond in the Ruff

Since 2016, longtime Humane Society of Broward County supporter J.R. Dunn Jewelers has been helping to create true love – by sponsoring pet adoptions so that more dogs and cats can find happy homes. The program is called Diamond in the Ruff, and who knows diamonds better than J.R. Dunn?

J.R. Dunn features a pet each week – yes, 52 pets every year – and underwrites the entire adoption fee for that dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Diamond in the Ruff is promoted through J.R. Dunn’s local radio spots and social media, and the HSBC will do its share of promotion as well.

What a fabulous way to put their money where their heart is, and to bring attention to all the amazing dogs and cats that are so ready to be loved. Furry little diamonds in the rough – just waiting for their “perfect setting!”

Be sure to visit J.R. Dunn’s facebook page each week  to see who the featured pet is and you might just find your next family member. Of course to meet the pet, contact the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-266-6839.
