Yearning for the warmth and security of companionship and human touch, beautiful Teela needs a caring, responsible owner with prior dog experience who will set her up for success by providing the structure, leadership, time, and attention she needs and deserves for the rest of her life.
Her soulful, searching eyes reveal much about her … she is sensitive, entirely sincere, and sometimes struggles to be sure of her place in the world. Teela is looking for the right family to embrace her as one of their own, providing the positive socialization and learning experiences ---safe opportunities for her to meet new people and master new activities and situations---which she needs to flourish as the loving, well-mannered, cherished, and always included family member she so longs to be.
Training and Socialization classes are highly recommended to give Teela the benefit of constructive learning experiences she has clearly been denied thus far. An intelligent, well-meaning dog who is quick to please when she knows what is expected of her, it is clear she is easily distracted when outdoors, has little experience walking on a leash, and needs some work on her attentiveness. Patient, loving guidance and sound, assertive leadership will go a long way to boost her confidence and improve her canine good manners. In return, Teela will reward the patient, loving family who undertakes this labor of love a thousand times over with a life-time of affection and wholly complete devotion and loyalty.
Teela is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.
Come meet Teela at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.
For more information you can email email@example.com or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.
Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.
Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.
In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.
