Teddy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Teddy's Story...
Adopted 6/3/2017.

Update Info on Teddy from his foster mom:

He LOVES getting baths and just laying on the couch watching the news. He would cuddle non stop.

Teddy is approximately 3 years old and weighs 65lbs. Teddy is a sweet and loving dog. He LOVES to cuddle and play.

Teddy does great on walks too. He knows how to sit and is great on a leash.

Teddy is a love-bug but needs a home with NO OTHER PETS. He is male selective but will warm up to the right guy. Teddy has been through two adoptive homes that just did not have his best interest at heart. Now that he is back with the rescue, he has come a long way.

Know any single ladies with no other pets looking for a dog? Or a kind patient guy that will take the time Teddy needs to trust again? Tell them about Teddy!

Teddy has vet issues and must be sedated, but our current vet just loves him and his anxiety is much improved. Teddy needs someone to stick by him and not let him down.

Teddy NEEDS someone that will earn his trust and have patience with his anxiety/fears.

Most of the animals listed on here are in foster homes, but some are still residing at the Granite City Animal Control until they can be adopted or there is a foster home opening.

Pound Pets Inc Rescue can always use more fosters.

Pound Pets volunteers cleans the animal control building, we are the caregivers for the animals brought in. Once they come through the door, they become our responsibility. We photograph all animals and post to the Pound Pets Facebook page. We provide them clean kennels, beds, blankets, toys, treats, outside play time, walks and human interaction. We try to comfort the scared, keep the high-energy ones exercised and provide plenty of love and affection to make their time at animal control as less stressful as possible.

Sometimes they get reclaimed by their families and sometimes they don't. If they don't it is our responsibility to find the adopters, fosters or rescues to save them from euthanasia.

We get in sick and injured animals as well. They do not sit in their kennels or cages needing veterinary care. Once we see the need for care they are taken to the vet. Sometimes the illness or injury is minor and the city will cover the bill, Other times when it's not, we do. We do all of this on our own dime. We buy the food, the beds, the blankets, the toys, and all the other things that go into care for the animals. Sometimes things are donated and that is wonderful!! We pay the medical bills that the city doesn't. As with most animal controls, there is a limit on what they will do or cover. At Pound Pets, there is no limit. Broken Bones, Surgery, Parvo, Heartworm, etc., if the animal has a chance the animal is given that chance. This is not a shelter but an animal control.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Teddy, a Jerseyville Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever for sale in Jerseyville, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Jerseyville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jerseyville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Jerseyville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jerseyville paves the way for another one to be saved.
