Our Available Tollers

Each Toller Rescue Inc. Rescue Toller has been carefully vetted, vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed or neutered. They are checked for heartworms and other parasites, treated if necessary, and on Heartworm and Flea preventative. We carefully evaluate each Tollerís temperament carefully and determine the best adoptive family situation. This information is placed on each Tollerís Bio. We try our utmost to be honest and factual about each Toller. However, we cannot guarantee their genetic background, or what health issues they might have in the future as the great majority of the time the Rescue Toller was found loose as a stray. For this same reason, we cannot say most of the time if the Rescue Toller will perform in the field as a hunting dog or as a competitor in performance events. While we do not get very many puppies or young Tollers in rescue, because they change so much, we cannot say for sure if the pup is actually a Pure Bred Toller or a Toller Mix. After the pup is older we will be happy to evaluate it. All Dogs that TRI deems to be a Pure Bred Toller we are willing to work with the Forever Family to register their Toller with the AKC in their "PAL" (ex ILP) program so the Rescue Toller can compete in performance events if the forever family desires.

If we do not have a Toller available listed on Our Tollers, we are still happy to accept your adoption application. We hold on to these for six months and will contact you when a potential match is available.

Please note our fence policy: Tollers are an active, agile breed, and a Rescue Toller does not necessarily have the immediate bonding a pup does. Thus our policy is that each home must have a secure fenced yard in good condition of five feet or more. We evaluate each Toller individually and on a few occasions because of physical limitations or age, we allow a Rescue Toller to go to a home with a shorter fence, but not less then four feet. We in general do not allow invisible fencing. We will consider a town home/condo/apartment situation on a case-by-case basis, but for most Tollers this situation does not work for an active breed like a Toller.

We are happy to work with other rescue organizations and courtesy post your Tollers/Toller Mixís here on our website. Contact Laura White, Webmaster for information.

Hato, all clean and groomed Hato in his foster's home Rooster, now Hato at the Shelter

Hato "Loves to be Cared For"

Hato is now ready for his forever family! Hato is believed to be a purebred Toller. He is about 5 to 7 years of age and is reported by people that knew him before his capture by Animal Control to be on his own for three years, being fed by people in the neighborhood he lived in. When TRI first rescued Hato he was reserved, but put up with his foster grooming all the mats out of his coat and giving him a bath. He really enjoyed the attention, kindness and care. Hato did escaped his foster's home when a puppy pushed down a barrier and was not able to be caught for a couple of days. The foster who is a behaviorist and obedience instructor spent months working with Hato so that he is reliable when called, but the forever family will have to continue the training.

Here is what the foster has to say about Hato: Hato is very good with other dogs and prefers a generally quiet environment with moderate exercise. He is a small boy, about 40 lbs. He had an injury in the past that left him limping on his front right leg, but this does not seem to slow him down. He is very shy at first, needing time to learn to trust a person. Once he understands that he is loved, he is very loving and sweet. He will do great in an environment with one other dog and a fenced back yard. I am not sure how he feels about cats or children, as he has still been to shy to approach strangers.

Hato is Heartworm free and fully vetted, and is being fostered in Raleigh NC.
