I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
My name is Teddy and I’m an adorable little guy of two who is handsome, peppy, affectionate, cheerful and active. (That’s according to my foster Mom because I would never brag!) I’m a little guy (weighing all of 8.5 pounds) with expressive eyes and lots of love to give. I’m also very affectionate!
You may have seen my photo on Facebook a few times. I had to have this teeny, tiny pin in my teeny tiny hip so I could run like the wind once again. Well, now I’m recovered and am making up for lost time. (Actually it wasn’t lost. I got to go lots of places, did this neat thing called ‘physical therapy’ and made friends wherever I went.)
I’m not exactly a playful guy, yet. I have a couple of squeaky toys and occasionally bring one out of my bed and toss it around. I don’t know how to fetch a toy or ball (Mom and Dad are teaching me that! I do, however, like to "wrestle" with them. I approach, do a big stretch with my hindquarters in the air and front legs extended, then I flop over onto my back (usually on the bed or a cushion) and put my front legs in the air (bicycling them.) I LOVE the challenge of "who's quicker" to see if you can gently grab my mustache or tickle my belly before I bat at your hand with my paw.
Dad says I LOVE to ride in the car. If I see Mom go to the garage I follow her closely to see if I can jump in the car. (I’m always disappointed if she’s just going to do laundry.) Once invited to get in the car, I ride like a champ!
There’s no doubt that I’m still a young guy and puppy-like in many ways. I’m pretty much housebroken, and pretty "peppy". While I’m not ready for long, long walks yet, I do need someone who can play with me and help me with my energy. I would also love to learn commands,
My doggy foster brother, Biscuit, is a great friend. We share lots of things and I’m learning from him, too! When someone comes to the door, we bark initially but calm down quickly. When visitors come I’m always friendly. I greet Mom and Dad’s friends enthusiastically, sniff at the house cleaners (a scratch behind my ear and they are "OK,") and I’m good about letting the FedEx or UPS deliverymen deliver their packages.
I get along great with the people they call adults. I’m good with children, too, but Mom thinks they should probably be at least seven years old (so they don’t think I’m a toy, as I’m pretty tiny and fearless!) When Mom and Dad leave me with Biscuit I’m pretty good however I do need reassurance and love company.
Mom says I’m an "all-in" kind of guy. I give love and affection to my humans with my whole heart and being. I have soulful eyes that communicate my needs. I’m usually cheerful, but can also project my longing for affection with my soulful eyes. I’m energetic, a tiny bit stubborn and walk well on a leash. My biggest wish is for a home with an active couple or family - and maybe another furkid or two. If I could go on lots of rides and walks I would be in heaven.
If I sound like the kind of furkid you are looking for, please complete our application – and ask for me!
Waiting to be your new best friend,
Terrific and Talented Teddy
