I haven't met the mix yet. But I have met a great little toller. She is smart as a whip and full of energy. She is a great dog. Her owners spend a lot of time training and working with her both in obedience and agility. I think if they wouldn't be doing so much with her she would be one naughty dog.

I don't have one, but I have met a couple. Really nice, sweet temperament. One looks exactly like my Jess except for the putty colored nose. Would love to see a picture of yours. I picked up an interesting book at the library last week, " a breed apart". A lot of history of the toller breed.

When I figure out how to post pictures I will put some up. Rolo is black-nosed, but has the white feet and a huge white splash on his chest. Typical "foxy" little Toller face and huge feathery tail. He looks just like a giant Toller (55 lbs.) He is almost always smiling.

He is quite bright, although he is a little timid. He came from a kill shelter in SC as a stray, and he had obviously never been in a house. Despite all this, he has excellent dog manners.

I was sure my rescue Woody was a Toller with maybe a little golden mixed in somewhere...he had all the markings. After a little research his size at 72 lbs was far too large for a Toller and he didn't have the Toller scream. A DNA test showed that he was all golden on one side and a Britney mix on the other.

He's definitely a charmer though...



I'd love to see a picture...

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.
