Toy just turned 10 years old... together with another dog, he was his old owners sweetheart, he had lived alone with them for years, since his wife passed away.
His 2 doggies meant everything to him, his solely grip in his lonely life. Their friendship, their being there for him kept him going for years.. he kept living for them.
His only wish was that his doggies would go to a nice place if he would die... this was promised to him, until he suddenly died. The posessions of their father became the most important to his children but their promise to take care of the doggies was set aside.
In the end, both daughter and son, didn't want to commit to their promise and Toy and his friend ended up on the street... and were brought to the killing station.
Toy survived, thanks to a friend of the owner who saved him from that hell...
Toy is used to (grand)children and other dogs... he is a loyal small guy, a friendly fellow who is just hoping to be happy for a little while.
Small as he is, he just wants a warm doggybed where he can grow grey and old until the end... and then being united with his old owner that he loved so much.
