Token Black, is a male fourth grader at South Park Elementary. Token is usually level headed, calm and rational. He has also been shown to be highly intelligent.
Meet the new goof on the block; Token! We don’t know anything about token’s past. Just that he found himself homeless at the city pound and was noticed by the staff. A plead was made in his favor and the rest is history. As soon as we met him, we know why the staff was so smitten.

Token is fostered in a home with two humans and one small female dog. His foster home has a fenced yard and he has made "through the fence" friends with the neighbor’s dog. He does well on a leash and loves going for evening walks. His foster mom says that he's such a good boy, he has recently been promoted from sleeping nights in his kennel to having reign over their dog room. He keeps his kennel clean during the day and loves going for car rides!
Token is working on coming out of his shell and can be a little bit shy when meeting new people. Once he has a bit of time to adjust, he is all clown--full of love and kisses and ready to show you what a good boy he is! Foster mom says that he is a moderate energy dog, equally happy to play or lounge with you.
Behavior with people:
Very friendly and loving with those he knows well. Reserved and unsure with strangers, especially people who aren’t comfortable around dogs. We think Token has some Bulldog in him or Boxer, and he might be a little more protective than a full blooded Pit Bull.
Behavior with children:
Because he’s a little anxious, Token will not be placed in a home with toddlers. Older, bigger kids who know how to behave around dogs, should be fine.
Behavior with other dogs:
Token gets along well with his foster sister but he needs to be supervised. He doesn’t like to share much, so toys can’t be given freely and he needs to be fed separately. He is dominant with other males. While he might do ok in an experienced home with a compatible female, being an only pet would be a great option for him.
Behavior with other animals:
Unknown at this time, but his foster mom says that so far he has not shown much of an interest in smaller critters on their walks.
Token is a training rockstar! He is house and kennel trained, and quickly learning sit, down, stay and heel. He will shortly start working on tricks and is always eager to make his human happy with how awesome he is!
Token's foster mom had a very hard time choosing! He has a great personality; his smaller size makes it easy to take him places; and is truly a sweetheart of a dog! He will be very easy for a family to fall in love with.
