Meet Ted

Teddy is a beautiful Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso who is about 8 years old and 18 pounds. Teddy is an easy dog to have around and is fully potty trained. He sleeps a lot and enjoys walks, car rides, and the backyard, but isn't high energy or demanding. He likes to be scratched and loved on some but isn't super needy. Teddy needs a home who wants to walk every single day, because that's when he lights up, he absolutely loves going out for a walk or ride in the car.

Teddy isn't the kind of dog who needs doggy friends, though he gets along with other dogs fine as long as they leave him be. He will growl a warning to new canines and humans if he feels his boundaries are being crossed, and will bite if pushed. He's just a typical Shih \Tzu/Lhasa in that way, a bit stubborn and wants what he wants. A family who is experienced with dogs and can accept Teddy on his terms is important, teaching this older dog new tricks likely won't work.

Teddy had a dental. He's also neutered and up-to-dates on shots. He recently had a negative heartworm and fecal test, was examined by our vet, and is micro-chipped. He's a healthy weight and is a beautiful little boy.

Teddy's adoption fee is $150, this helps cover some of the cost of his vetting and care.

The first step to adopt Teddy is to read all about adoption with Happy Tails Rescue Inc. and fill out an application. If we think your home sounds like a match we'll be in touch. Copy this link to go to our web site:

Happy Tails Rescue Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit foster-based rescue based in Northwest Indiana. We have no shelter, all of our animals are cared for in loving foster homes until their forever home match is found. All of our animals are fully vetted before adoption, including distemper, rabies, and bordatella vaccines, a heartworm test, fecal test, microchip, and are spayed/neutered. If you're interested in meeting one of our animals please fill out an application first. If approved we will then arrange a meet and greet. Happy Tails does not do same day adoptions because we do a short home visit to make sure our animals are being placed in safe environments.
