UPDATE 3/28/17: Toby is doing so fabulous in foster care! He still is looking for a loving home in warm weather. Unfortunately his foster family lives in cold weather and that is not very good for his joints. Toby is a silver paws dog and is sponsored! Toby is great with kids and other dogs!
Update 4.24.16: Spectacular news! Toby has done so well with his rehabilitation after his dual surgeries that he is now ready to go home. The family lucky enough to receive this boy will feel like they won the lottery as he is beyond fabulous and the true definition of a gentle giant.
Update 3.4.16: Toby had two of his three surgeries performed earlier this week. He is doing exceptionally well post op…so well..that he went home today!! Toby has a long road of rehabilitation ahead of him but he has a fabulous foster family who is committed and a village who is supportive.
CCR continues to need financial support as we still need to raise the remain costs associated with his surgeries (we are almost 1/2 way there). Toby was in a great deal of constant pain so fortunately the vet conducted the surgery in advance of full-payment as he was amazed at what a sweet tempered fabulous boy Toby was…not many could withstand that type of pain and still be a gentle giant. With this said, CCR wanted you all to know how very grateful we are for your continued support and ask if you could continue to share Toby’s plea so we can ensure we are in good standing and ready for the next immediate emergency for the next Corso in need.

Update 2.9.16: We have some good news and some very sad news regarding Toby. First the good news: Toby is doing fabulously in regards to his weight and temperament. This boy is truly a gentle giant in spite of being in constant pain. You see, Toby’s foster family immediately noticed he was have difficulties getting around and sure enough after seeing a very competent vet in Ohio that has helped many of our Corsi, we got the heartbreaking news…Toby needs surgery on his hip (it is very, very bad) and both knees. We know we are asking a lot for one dog and a dog that is 5 years of age BUT how do you save a precious life and then take it away because of a medical need. We just can’t do that to him. If each of our 20,000 followers gave just a little we could get this boy feeling better in no time. If you can’t donate, please help by sharing! Toby will be forever grateful as will CCR.
Spectacular news! Toby has been sprung from the shelter; he is FREE! A heartfelt thank you to our wonderful volunteers who ensure he received his freedom today and to that wonderful family who opened their heart and home to foster him. Today is a fabulous day to be Toby as today is the first day of a wonderful new life.
Cane Corso Rescue, Inc is elated to be welcoming Toby into the family. Toby had a pretty bad life before so much so that animal control confiscated him promising him of a better life to come. Poor boy was emaciated, had ear infections in both ears, fly bites on both ears, and open wounds on rear legs and nose area. In spite of all this neglect, Toby has only lives in the present! Once in the shelter, Toby quickly won the hearts of the employees, instantly becoming a shelter favorite. According to Toby’s followers at the shelter, Toby “has been fabulous with every dog he’s met. He is very sweet and mellow—he’s a favorite of the dog walker volunteers”. So how fabulous is Toby…well today he was the helper dog at the shelter!!! Yes, you are reading this correctly…Toby, the Cane Corso, was the dog responsible for doing intros with a female that was a bit high strung! Toby didn’t bat an eye even when she reacted! He just turned his head as to walk away! Dream boat Toby will not be waiting for a family too long as he is just that fantastic. If you think Toby is your man, please don’t wait to submit an application asap! Let’s get this boy home village!!
