Remember Toby, the autism companion dog? He's been found and is back with his owner

A happy ending in Castleconnell.

REMEMBER TOBY? HE’s the autism companion dog that went missing from his home in Castleconnell in Limerick on Sunday.

Well he’s back, and looking quite pleased about it.

The Bernese Mountain Dog-Beagle cross belongs to 21-year-old Peter Meskell, and accompanies him during his day-to-day life. The dog is also trained to provide assistance with certain tasks.

He went missing on Sunday and was feared stolen but Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland say he was left at the side of the road in Castleconnell this afternoon, he has since been reunited with Peter.

Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland who launched the campaign to find Toby, and explained how there’s a waiting list of up to five years for one of the dogs, said it wished to thank the public who helped find the dog.
