Teddy loves to be with his people, is a bit of a talker, and doesn't like being left alone. (Another dog will not work as company.) He wants someone who works from home or can take him to work where he can hang out in his crate and gnaw on a bone. He will do great in a home with dog loving extended family/multi-generational households. He loves taking walks and running around at the beaches and grassy fields, and he loves playing tug indoors. Great as an only dog as he wants allll your love and attention but he will do fine if the other dog is respectful and gives him his space as he's not interested in play.
Teddy can be fearful around certain pedestrians and male joggers (arf!) but with reward based training, he will focus on you and the treat and ignore the things that make him feel insecure. He's very food motivated and already knows quite a few tricks and commands. Teddy is a good watch dog and will let you know when someone's at the door. Though not a lap dog, he is quite the snuggler, loves to be petted and to be next to his people. Teddy needs to be taken out for walks for potty every 4-5 hrs or so as he's a little guy and it's harder for small breeds to hold it for long periods of time. He's good waiting longer overnight. Teddy is slightly possessive of his food/treats, but his fostermom is able to have him leave a treat alone or another dog's food alone with a firm "leave it!" and can also gently take a marrow bone away from him.
He is 4yrs old, @15lbs and quite the looker! He will need to be groomed periodically for haircuts so please keep that into account in your finances.
Please see our other available dogs at Grateful Dogs Rescue. Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial medical and other costs in rescuing our dogs. In order to recoup some of these costs, we must charge an adoption fee. The adoption fee for Teddy is $200.
If you are interested in adopting Teddy, please complete our online adoption application. One of our volunteers will get back to you. Adoptions are local, confined to the SF Bay Area.
