found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.
**IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ - Due to the nature of our adoption process, this foster is only able to consider forever families within 15-20 miles of zip code 75074. A vet reference and trial adoption will be done before the adoption is finalized. Thank you for your understanding.**
This is Teddy—short for Teddy Bear. He got his name because he is such a sweet, loving little dog that you will want to hug. We believe he is a large Yorkie. Because he is a Yorkie, or a Yorkie mix, he has hair instead of fur and he does not shed. His hair is currently very short because we had to cut out the mats, but it will grow back. He will need to be brushed to keep it from matting. Although he is a little large for a Yorkie, he is a good size--not too big or too small. He weighs about 12 pounds. He has been aged at 2 years of age and so he should not get any bigger. Teddy is very gentle. He is very calm in the house and loves to curl up on your lap—especially if you are in a recliner. Teddy is a lover and he will follow me around the house waiting for the opportunity to climb up in my lap.
Teddy is well behaved in the house. He has not showed any tendency to chew on anything other than occasionally a dog toy.
Teddy seems to be housetrained. I let him out periodically and after the first day he learned the routine and since then, he has not had any accidents. He is pretty good about doing his business quickly when you let him out—however he is not very vocal when he wants to go outside. He will fidget next to the dog gate when he wants to go out—but he does not bark to tell you he needs to go outside. I have been crating him during the day while I am at work and he does not have accidents in his crate.
Teddy seems to get along well with other dogs. He wrestles with my Yorkie who is about his size and my Sheltie who is bigger than he is. He has learned to leave my older dog alone. He is interested in kitties, but has not shown any tendency to chase them during his very limited exposure to cats.
Teddy will be an awesome new family member for the right home. If you are interested in Teddy, complete an application today.
Anyone interested in our dogs must be over 21. We are only able to adopt to homes within a reasonable driving distance of the dog's foster home and please be prepared for a home visit by one of our volunteers. We do not adopt on first-come-first-served basis, we want to make sure the dog is right for the family and vice versa based on what we know about the dog's personality, habits and behaviors. Our adoption fee for dogs is $175. You can complete an online adoption application on our website http://www.furryfriendsanimalrescue.org- we will get back with you asap.
