Ann Hoang really wanted to add a second dog to her family, but her husband wasn't sure whether they could handle it, so they decided to try fostering first. They agreed that if fostering went well, then eventually they would adopt another rescue dog of their own. That was the plan, until they met Toby.
When Toby first arrived in his foster home, he was incredibly scared and very unsure of his new parents and siblings. At first, he wouldn’t come out of his crate — and even once he did, he was hesitant to sit or lie down, and instead just stood around, staring at all his new family members. They were so patient with him, though, and offered him as much love and attention as he could handle. Before long, he realized he was safe, and fell in love with his new home and everyone in it — especially his foster dad.
