Toby and Amos | the North West

Meet Toby and Amos, the exploring wonderdogs! Toby is a 9-year-old border terrier and Amos is a blind 18-month-old cross Staffordshire bull terrier. Toby is Amos’ best friend and guide dog; he has taught him all about adventuring, climbing and ultimately how to be a wonderdog! Toby looks after Amos on walks if there are scary things around and helps guide him on tough sections of path when they go adventuring. They are the best co-explorers and aim to show everyone that adventure is good for the soul.

When / how they met their human:

Toby was the best-ever birthday present for my 18th birthday, and I first met Amos when he was 3 months old in the rescue centre he was born in.

Favourite playtime activity:

Toby loves frisbee, Amos loves destroying things and together they love wrestling.

Naughtiest/cheekiest habit:

Toby throws himself around like a hooligan in public and puts his legs or head in Amos’ mouth. Amos headbutts people when he tries to cuddle them and squashes Toby when he snuggles him.

Tegg’s Nose - it is a walk I had always loved with Toby and also happened to be the first adventure we took Amos on, where he earned his adventure stripes!

Their best day would be…

Both pups love adventuring, snacking and napping - not necessarily in that order!
