As Obi-Wan Kenobi might have said to Tobie, "May the force be with you!" And poor Tobie needed all the good luck and good will the force could muster. Approximately two years old and a medley of breed mixes, Tobie was a homeless dog who had been wandering around in Stokes County, North Carolina, for a long time. She was emaciated and frightened, she had skin issues, she may have recently given birth, and she had an old neglected foot injury with a missing toe and toenails, perhaps from getting caught in trap. A kind woman took her in but could not keep her.
