At approximately 10 years of age, Tedi found herself in doggy jail. She just intended to go for a short walk from her home when some man in a truck picked her up and took her to jail. What the heck? Her human, unfortunately, never came for her.
Tedi was a bit upset and nervous in this loud place and just wanted OUT! When I went to visit her, she immediately expressed her desire to leave by barking LOUDLY! She was in jeopardy at the shelter so I brought her home.
Tedi walked right into the house as if she had lived with me and the other dogs all her life. As long as she had a soft bed, instead of a cold hard kennel floor, and a good meal twice a day, she was grateful. Initially, she wasn't too happy with me for taking her to the groomer and having her shaved; but she really did feel much better and didn't look like the same hairy monster from the shelter. Tedi's hair coat has since grown back and she will require periodic grooming.
The shelter had said Tedi was arthritic; but more so she was overweight. Under protest, Tedi immediately began a diet. She has dropped several pounds and is much more agile now and doesn't have near the problems getting up. With a daily walk or two, Tedi would probably do even better.
If you are looking for a great older companion that doesn't require constant attention, Tedi is your gal. She's happy to sleep on a nice comfy bed or in a large crate. She will hang out with you while you drink your morning coffee or watch football in the evening.
Tedi is available through Brittany Rescue AZ's program called "Wanna Doggy - Foster for Life Program" Under this program, Tedi has no adoption fee and has lifetime care by Brittany Rescue AZ (medical and grooming). The "foster" just has to agree to give Tedi a home, provide food, exercise and love. The foster also agrees that Tedi legally remains the responsibility of the rescue and should be returned to the rescue if anything should ever happen that she can not continue to live with them. We prefer the foster to live in the north Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ area.

Tedi is, of course, up to date on vaccines and spay.
