Teddy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Teddy's Story...
Teddy is a handsome, purebred collie with wonderful leash manners and charm. He loves adults and has acquired a fan club at the animal hospital where he goes every day with his foster mom. Teddy is gentle and wants to be around people.

Living in his foster home has been like finishing school where he has learned social skills with other pets. He now enjoys playing and romping with other dogs of all sizes, and he knows how to tell other dogs when he has had enough playtime without over-reacting. He likes to sniff and lick cats, but he will bark at them if they run from him. He is mildly curious about pet birds, rats, and guinea pigs but mostly ignores them.
 
Teddy was adopted from TSCR several years ago and returned when he snapped at the new baby in the home. Because of this history, Teddy should go to an adult-only home. His adoptive family was very reluctant and heartbroken to relinquish him and continues to check on his progress.
 
Teddy was de-barked in the past. A debarking surgery reduces the intensity and volume of barking but does not prevent barking.  He also has strong herding instincts and will nip at your feet as you walk away sometimes. Lawn mowers and bicycle's are things he thinks he should herd as well.  

An experienced dog owner would best fit his needs and he in turn will shower you with lots of love and devotion.  

He is presently being fostered near Cincinnati, Ohio.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Teddy, a Powell Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Powell, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Powell.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Powell already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Powell breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Powell paves the way for another one to be saved.
