My name is Philly Boles and here is my Happy Tails story.

After talking about getting a dog for many years, mommy, daddy and big brother decided to go take a drive into Toronto to “just take a look” at Toronto Humane Society. They saw many dogs and put their name down for 2 different dogs, but they got adopted by other families which made mommy and daddy very sad, but the nice Toronto Humane Society lady said, “Let me show you this cute black lab.”

I came from a shelter in Alabama. I was very nervous and scared when mommy and daddy saw me for the first time. Mom, Dad and big brother had to wait a few days while I get a small surgery and then they could come and get me. November 21, 2018, I left Toronto Humane Society and started my new life of being a spoiled dog.

I get to do everything with my family. We go for LOTS of walks and long hikes on the weekend. They make holidays fun and I get to be included in them all. I was top of my training class because I am so smart. I also have a dog walker, so I have a group of friends I get to see every day.

I’m so glad that Mommy and Daddy found me. They tell me that they love me a million times a day. Thank you, Toronto Humane Society, for finding me my forever home.
