Welcome Tovi to Humphrey House

Tovi is a 5 year old female Miniature Poodle who weighs 18 pounds.

Tovi is an extreme behavior case. She has spent most of her life being bred in a puppy mill. Now retired, she needs to learn how to be a dog. Tovi is nervous going outside, terrified to walk on a leash, and nervous of people in general. She currently uses potty pads well, but then also lays on the dirty potty pads. This poor girl needs a lot of love, patience and guidance.

Tovi will need a very special home to help her feel safe - a quiet home where she can have her own safe space, like a puppy pen area, access to go outside, such as a covered porch, and definitely a fenced yard since she is a flight risk. When nervous or scared, Tovi runs to find safety. She has been amazing with the other small dogs in rescue and actually prefers their company over people.

Before coming to Humphrey House, Tovi spent 4 months in a home, but wasn't making any progress. When the owner left Tovi alone for a few days with her husband, Tovi began growling at him and decided she didn't like him anymore. We haven't had that experience with her, but it should be noted that if you push her too far, she could be a bite risk. Tovi needs an experienced home without children while she adjusts.

Tovi is spayed, chipped and current on vaccines. Humphrey House for Homeless Animals is located in Harford County, Maryland for meetings. Thank you!
