The moment we meant Toshy we fell in love with him, he is a very happy go lucky male. My son Tanner (age 13) and Toshy bonded almost instantly. He is a gorgeous, sweet, lovable male. He has a very good expression, big head, very good build and pigment. He is sure, stable, balanced and very eager to learn. We are very excited to add this exceptional male with excellent structure and outstanding temperament in our breeding program. He is truly incredible!
