Pet's Name
Toubab is a White / Blonde, short hair Male Canis Africanis Dog for adoption to a very loving home in or near Columbia SC. This very special Dog is 4 and weighs 51 lbs.

If you are lookiing for the World’s most devoted dog, Toubab the Africanis dog is waiting to meet you. This very sweet white dog hails all the way from Senegal, where he was adopted by his owners when they were working in Africa. Toubab’s is a rags-to-riches story; he was a stray puppy in desperate need of love and attention when they found him, and he is now a healthy, happy and very devoted family companion.

Toubab basically means "white guy" in the native language of Toubab’s home country. Toubab is such an intelligent, attentive dog - he connects very deeply and profoundly with his humans. It is a very special bond, and one that makes the need to find Toubab a new home so devastating for his owners.

Toubab was adopted along with another puppy, and the two were great freinds and housemates throughout their time in Africa, and up until recently in South Carolina. Unfortunately, as the dogs have matured, Toubab’s larger buddy has developed a penchant for picking on him. A recent scuffle resulted in Toubab being injured, and a trip to the veterinarian for stitches. Sadly, the dogs will need to be separated, and the owners feel that Toubab’s chances of finding a new home are best.
Toubab’s ideal placement will be with dog lovers who can give him a very loving home. He needs to bond closely with his owners, and enjoys their time and attention. He is happiest in a home with a large, securely fenced yard. He has not been around small children, and the owners feel that he would be best suited to an adults-only home, or a home with children older than 12 who are very respectful of dogs.

Toubab is very healthy. He has been fixed and is up to date on his vaccinations. Toubab is housebroken and well behaved. He is naturally suspicious of strangers and protective of hearth and home. His owners will need to be aware of this natural trait, and ensure that Toubab is carefully introduced to new people and visitors to the home.
If you are looking for a truly amazing little dog that is the essence of unconditional love, joy and devotion, Toubab is your perfect match. While he is currently located in South Carolina, his devoted owner will deliver him to the right home anywhere within a reasonable distance – and very likely further. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in Toubab, even if you are hundreds of miles away.
His family describe him:
1. Once he loves you, he loves you really hard.
2. He can read other’s emotions, moods, feelings. If I am sick or upset about something, Toubab is right there and will not leave my side.
3. He is a happy dog, and it brings me joy to watch his huge smile when he is outside taking in the world
4. He is a protector dog, and I have always felt incredible safe with Toubab around despite living in places that experienced severe unrest
5. In the mornings when he wakes up, he comes snuggling up to you as close as he can get, flips over on his back, begs for belly rubs, and turns into a little puppy for a few minutes.
Toubab was rescued as a puppy of about 6 weeks old of the streets of Dakar, Senegal. He was malnourished, hiding behind the wheel of a truck, covered in mango worms, and kids were throwing rocks at him. My husband picked him up and took him to the vet, and was told that Toubs wouldn’t make it through the night.

Toubab was so sick that he could not regulate his body temperature, so he slept inside of a sleeping bag on my husband’s chest for three months. As a result, we now have a four-year old dog that loves to snuggle up against human skin and fall asleep completely buried underneath the covers.

Toubs has had some rough patches, yet he remains such a happy dog. Sometimes he has little nightmares, and you can hear him wimpering and shaking. When this happens we just pet him and he stops. He is such a sweet and loving dog despite having so many terrible experiences, and I am so thankful that this little sweet pup has lived on this Earth to share his love.
Toubab takes 30mg of prozac daily with dinner. This was initiated by an American vet in Congo after the pups started fighting, and we have noticed significant improvement with separation anxiety and decreased aggression. We will send the rest of our supply, the rest will need to be obtained from the vet).
