Toby, a two-nosed, 2-year-old Border Collie-Australian Shepard mix from California, has thankfully escaped being put down, finding a new forever home alongside two other dogs with unusual physical attributes.
The canine was caught while wandering the streets of Fresno, and was due to be put down, until Todd Ray came across a post from a local animal shelter and asked about adopting him. Ray and his wife immediately agreed to adopt Toby. Toby now lives with Ray’s family, which includes two other dogs, Rocky, a five-legged Miniature Pinscher, and Pinky, a two-legged Chihuahua.
“For me, they are incredible. I’m fascinated by unique animals’ beautiful differences and by the magical lessons that they teach us,” he said.
“The uniqueness of their forms show us that ‘normal’ doesn’t exist. The sad thing is that, at this time, people are at a place where they will let a two-nosed dog get put down before they will adopt him – only because he looks different.”
Thank-you Todd Ray, for seeing the beauty and import of all dogs.
