In February 2009, we visited friends in Ambergris Caye, Belize. They foster dogs for Saga – the local humane society.  This year, they fostered a little beagle named Toby. Toby used to live at the Belize Yacht club, but his owner gave him up for reasons unknown.

My 6 year only daughter and I fell in love with Toby instantly. We talked
about getting a beagle for years and here was a sweet one who
needed a home.  The deal was sealed a few days later when we woke to find
him smack in the middle of our bed with his head on the pillow! That was
it – I woke up my husband and said we had to bring him home with us.

Adoption was remarkably easy.  We went to Saga Humane Society and they
prepared the rabies and health certificate.  They also advised quarantine
was not necessary for dogs being brought into Canada from Belize (Belize is
part of the Commonwealth).  I called the airline, made arrangements and we
flew home.

We’re so happy to have Toby.  I own my own business and he comes to work
with me every day as our mascot – a job he adores.  But when he’s off duty,
he’s simply our baby and a great addition to our family!
