They gave him the food and veterinary care he desperately needed, before starting him on a physical therapy regimen.The organization moved him to a foster home in California where he started doing exercises to increase the mobility in his legs.

Slowly, he started to be able to stand, and then walk a few feet before having to collapse again.But after months of work and care, Toby can once again use his hind legs! He was adopted by another family in California, where he receives infinite love and care.
