Facts about Theo

  • Breed: Cairn Terrier Mix
  • Color: Silver & Tan (Yorkie Colors)
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Theo is the sweetest little old man. He's super old, we're guessing 12-14 years. He walks stiffly but is strong and in good general health. He doesn't hear well, and his peripheral vision is gone, but he's a wonderful little man who just wants a soft place to sleep and a good poke around the yard. He loves his back scratched.

Theo is a favorite of his foster Mom's. She says he's just easy and sweet, it's a pleasure to care for him. She loves spoiling him with treats.

Theo had a dental where many of his teeth were pulled, but he still has molars and eats dry food quite well. He's also neutered and has a rabies vaccine. We did minimal preventative vetting on Theo because of his advanced age. Theo needs a calm home with a routine where he can spend his final year or two knowing love.

His adoption fee is $150.

Happy Tails Rescue Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit foster-based rescue based in Munster, Indiana. We have no shelter, all of our animals are cared for in loving foster homes until their forever home match is found. All of our animals are fully vetted before adoption, including distemper, rabies, and bordatella vaccines, a heartworm test, fecal test, microchip, and are spayed/neutered. Adoption fees range from $150-$350. If you're interested in meeting one of our animals please fill out an application first. If approved we will then arrange a meet and greet. Happy Tails does not do same day adoptions because we do a short home visit to make sure our animals are being placed in safe environments.

About Happy Tails Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Happy Tails Rescue Inc. pulls dogs at risk for euthanasia from Northwest Indiana shelters, humane societies, and animal controls, fully vets them, and finds them loving forever homes. There is no shelter, all of the dogs are fostered in screened loving foster homes until they find their forever home. This can take a week to many months. In addition to rescuing dogs from the shelters for Happy Tails Rescue, we help spay/neuter animals in need as funds allow, and help coordinate shelter animals into placement with other rescues. On average Happy Tails helps move 5-10 cats and dogs who would otherwise often be euthanized out of the shelter each week and into Chicagoland and Indianapolis area rescues.

Our Adoption Process...

How the Adoption Process Works:
Everything we do is aimed at giving our dogs the best possible chance of finding a loving permanent home.
-Before meeting the animals, we ask that you complete the Online Adoption Application.
-Once your Application has been received, you will have a phone conversation with a Happy Tails volunteer.
-Once you’ve been approved, s/he will fill you in on the personalities, history, and behavior of the animals to allow you to make the best choice possible for your living situation. You can ask them any questions you have regarding health, behavior, and long-term care.
-Then you and all members of your household will be invited to visit the dog. If you decide you want to proceed Happy Tails Rescue will conduct a home visit.
-At the home visit, if you decide adoption is right for you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, wellness exam, vaccinations, microchip, dental (if needed) and heart-worm and fecal tests. We will also register the dog's microchip together at that time. The cost for this is $10.99 and you will need a credit or debit on hand.
-You will always have continued support from us after your adoption. We invite you to contact us at any time with questions or concerns.
