Everyone's favorite boy, Teko can't believe you haven't found him and adopted him yet! What's the hold-up? Patient Teko's story is this: For nine years Teko lived in Ohio with his older human, but when she could no longer see to her own or his needs, she moved to California to live with her daughter, where issues with the landlord made it impossible for Teko's family to care for him any longer. So, imagine how you'd feel if the world you'd known for almost nine years was turned upside down. That's Teko's story. Now he's here at MHS and very confused!

Teko is a lovely little fellow who would like to find another human companion who will love him just as much, be home almost as much as his previous mom and be happy to offer him a couple daily walks in the outside world. He is very affectionate and attentive with his people, hopping up on laps and following his peeps everywhere. He's not really interested in meeting previously unknown dogs (especially bigger ones), but he does have a history of having dog friends. He just needs time and space to get to know them on his terms.

Teko attended one of our dog training classes and he did very well! He's smart, and a quick learner. Mostly, though, he wants to be with his special human. Please ask our adoption staff to show you his previous guardian's questionnaire so you can learn more about him. A consultation prior to adoption will also help you know if this little guy is the right little guy for you. Teko is sure hoping that's the case. Let's go home already!
