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.
