Facts about Teddy

  • Breed: Shih Tzu Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Teddy is a 4 year old, 16 pound Shih Tzu. He is a love bug. He very much likes to be close to his human and follows direction well. You just have to be careful not to step on him as he may be underfoot without your knowledge : ) He loves to eat and take naps. He enjoys lots of cuddles and loves belly rubs.

He is a great traveler and does well in the car. He is mostly housetrained and is completely pad trained. Teddy's foster mom would describe him as a couch potato. First thing in the morning he loves to go on walks to release energy and then hang out the rest of the day. He enjoys his walks and all the smells the environment provides him with! He loves being pet and will be playful with his human.

Teddy gets along with everyone, including other dogs. He would make an excellent companion to any person or family!

About PupStarz Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

PupStarz Rescue is a non-profit, no-kill, volunteer dog rescue serving New York City and the Tri-State area.

We are dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs in public shelters who are at high risk of euthanasia due to overpopulation and those in danger of abuse or neglect.

Because PupStarz Rescue does not have a shelter, all of our “starz” are placed in nurturing foster homes while they await adoption into a forever home. We rely on the kindness and generosity of animal lovers to open their hearts and homes to dogs in need.

Animals in our care are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and given all appropriate veterinary care. We assist dogs in distress regardless of age, breed, temperament, or a potential difficult placement. In order to care for animals in need, we are determined to keep administrative costs conservative.

Following a comprehensive adoption process, dogs are placed in loving, responsible, committed forever homes. PupStarz Rescue takes considerable care in appropriately matching and educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a dog into their lives. Our non-profit remains committed to the welfare of our “starz” beyond the adoption process. We follow up with adopters to ensure a smooth transition, encourage positive training techniques, and engage in open communication to offer any additional assistance.

Finally, we strive to work with area shelters, rescues, and humane organizations to develop a supporting network of volunteers to create a better world for those who have no voice.
