Teddy - A Petfinder Happy Tail

From Lisa of Hamilton, NJ
In June of 2011 my baby girl Starr passed the rainbow bridge. I promised myself I would wait at least 6 months before even thinking about rescuing another dog but after a few weeks, I found myself looking on Petfinder so I could 'start thinking about what I wanted' in a new pup. I came across Teddy's page & thought he was the cutest thing ever! My boyfriend & I were still living in Trenton but Teddy was in Alabama! I contacted Patricia at Crossing Paths of Yardley & we kept in touch via email. I had decided to rescue another dog thru Petfinder (a Schipperke mix which we named Baxter) after I was told that Teddy was being adopted.
Patricia & I kept in touch & then 1 day after about 3 months since I first contacted her, she told me that Teddy was coming up to the PetSmart in PA near our home! We were very excited but nervous that Baxter would not like another pup in the house! He was a grumpy old man but we decided to let fate decide & brought Baxter to PetSmart to meet Teddy & see if they got along.
When I first met Teddy, I was scared, a lot of his fur was missing & we were worried he was sick but Baxter seemed to like him so I felt in my heart, I had to bring him home, it was just meant to be! There was even another woman there to look at him but when she saw how Teddy played with Baxter, she told me, 'You are meant to be his mommy' :)
We brought him home that day, November 12th 2011... brought him to our vet who had tested him for everything under the sun! Theodor Edward Bear was & still is a perfectly healthy little man who has brought tremendous amounts of joy to our life with his little dance & big personaility!
We have since moved out of Trenton & both Baxter & Ted E love their new home & big yard to play in. I still keep in touch with Patricia & send pictures of Ted E in his new home & of all the exciting things we have done :) We have taken our boys camping, kayaking & even bike riding! They love the outdoors almost as much as we do :)
But without PetfFinder & Patricia of Crossing Paths we would have never been united with our Ted E Bear & I can't imagine life with out him! he truely rescued me!
