According to GWR she adopted the dog from an animal shelter when he was just a few months old. When Shore was volunteering at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue, one of the employees informed her about an elderly couple who were planning to give away a puppy because they could not take care of the dog any longer. She met them and decided to adopt tiny Chihuahua, Initially his name was 'Peanut Butter' but she later changed the name to Toby Keith.

On average, Chihuahuas live up to 12 to 18 years but after spending more than two decades with Toby Keith, A thought striked her mind that he could be the oldest dog living when he turned 20.
