Meet Teddy, a very handsome 3 year-old boy who looks like a mix of Retriever, Spaniel, and Collie. This very friendly and affectionate guy had the misfortune of ending up at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter after he was surrendered by his owner. According to the shelter, Teddy was outside in his fenced yard when a maintenance man entered unannounced. Teddy chased him and nipped him which is how many dogs would have reacted under the circumstances. The shelter found him to be a very friendly and affectionate dog who was the victim of an unfortunate situation so he made the trip to Canine Lifeline to work on finding the home best suited for him. We do want to place Teddy in a mature, adult-only home in a quiet neighborhood that has a yard with a secure aboveground fence where he can relax and enjoy life. Teddy has been very friendly and outgoing with all people he’s met since coming to us. He does well with female dogs but has been very growly and snarly with other male dogs to date. Having been recently neutered, his attitude toward other males may improve with time. Teddy has done very well with crate-training in his foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. He walks pretty well on a leash and will enjoy exploring his new neighborhood along with his new family. Teddy weighs about 27 pounds currently but will be 30+ pounds once he’s at his ideal weight. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Teddy. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
