Meet Theo

Theo is living in a foster home. Please submit an application and we will connect you for an intro!

Theo is not eligible for foster and will be a straight adoption.

Housebroken: Yes
Cratetrained: Yes, he's been doing well with his crate-training and has been left alone for up to 7 hours.
Dog sociability: Lives with a dog in his foster home and has been doing well, though he appreciates slow introductions to dog pals. On leash, he can be frustrated/reactive and may bark/lunge excitedly when he sees other dogs.
Cat sociability: Not a match
Kids: Unknown, but likely not a match for little ones because he can be jumpy
Ideal home: Theo will benefit from a home that can provide a lot of good mental enrichment (Kongs, puzzle toys, etc) as he needs to be kept calm these next few months due to heartworm. He would do best in a more quiet/low-key neighborhood as he can be excitable on walks and is working on leash skills!

Well, hello there stunning blue-eyed beauty! Theo is not only handsome, but also wickedly smart. He loves working his brain with treat balls and puzzle toys and is excited to work for his food. He has good household manners and is happy to entertain himself with toys. He loves a good chew toy! Walks are super fun for Theo and he enjoys sniffing everything he can. He's a dog and people friendly pup who is working on containing his excitement when he sees new friends on the sidewalk - with some tasty treats he has been great at redirecting his attention. Theo is hoping to a find a home that is excited about continuing training and of course, telling him he has the prettiest eyes in the world every day.

Theo tested positive for heartworm disease at his prior shelter and received treatment there in April. He will need to be on exercise restriction until December/January and then he will be retested for heartworm disease. If his retest comes back positive, OTAT will cover additional treatment at our Ellis Clinic.

Theo's adoption fee is 300. He is neutered, up to date on core vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm positive.

**** Our adoption application stays on file for one year and can apply to any dog in our program. Once the app is submitted you will receive an email within 48-72 hours. For additional questions, email ****
