Ted E. Bear's Story...
Hi, I’m Ted, don’t let my size scare you, I am a big cuddly boy just like the super sized Teddy Bear prizes you see at Fairs and Carnivals. I am a beautiful cream color, not one of those glow-in-the-dark crazy colors, now that would definitely scare people. Back to my story, I was a stray in Ohio and when my time was up at the shelter, the people at MARS took me into their rescue program. I had a tag with the name Bear and part of a phone number. The nice lady from MARS tried different phone numbers but no one claimed me. She also brought me treats and took me to meet some of her co-workers who were also very nice and gave me a doughnut to celebrate my being rescued.

I am three to four years young, neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, H/W negative and looking for a home where I can cuddle and snuggle. The people at MARS said I need to gain about 10 pounds. I walk nicely on a leash, am not food aggressive and I’m learning that crates can be a great place to get cozy. I am not bothered by most other dogs, and I liked playing with the female Pug at the kennel.

For more information about me please contact Deanna O’Brien at 773-594-9302 or . And, if you would like to try your luck at finding a big Teddy Bear of an Akita, fill out the MARS application and earn a chance to come and meet me in Wilmington, IL.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ted E. Bear, a Chicago Akita dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Akita for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Akita dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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 Akita breeders who help with Akita rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
