Fenced yard is required and a home visit will be conducted to confirm.
We will not reply to your email until you have taken the time to fill out our application. We apologize for the inconvenience but we are an all volunteer organization with limited resources. This is the best way we have found to weed out the window shoppers. There are a lot of people who just want to ask questions but will never adopt and unfortunately we just don't have time to chat.
$300 adoption fee
6 years old
Loves to play fetch with squeaky toys and extra small stuffed animals--mostly he loves to follow along beside another dog that's doing the fetching while barking excitedly (haha)
Excellent with dogs of all sizes as well as cats
Barks at strange noises and at other critters (cows, horses, big dogs, pigs) as initial greeting
Not accustomed to leash walking but is not fearful or resistant
Well behaved at the groomer and at the vet
Loves: bully sticks (look up on Amazon.com), cottage cheese, chicken, extra small greenies, plain unflavored yogurt
Once shy Teddy is given the chance to get to know you (which will take days, at minimum), he is extremely affectionate and never tires of being petted. Despite his small stature, he enjoys adventures outdoors just as much as he enjoys time on the couch or dog bed. He will probably never be totally "normal"--in that he will always cower a bit when someone bends down to reach for him and things like that. It just doesn't seem like he was handled much in his life. However, he is 100% nonaggressive and once in your arms or in your lap, he is ready for love! Often he will climb his way over there himself.
