Teddy's Info...

Teddy's Story...
Are you looking for a lovable companion like me? I’m Teddy, yes, as in Teddy Bear. I’m a happy, lovable 10 year old male with big brown eyes who is willing to give you all the love you want. The only thing I’m missing is meeting my forever family. Really, I’m very much like your favorite Teddy Bear - I will cuddle, sit on your lap or lay by your side. Did I mention that sitting in your lap is what I do best? I so love to be touched that I will close my eyes in pure joy. I will even position myself so you can rub my bum-bum. There are many things I enjoy - walks, car rides, visits to the local hardware stores, or anywhere you want to take me.

I once was a stray and the great folks at Southland Sheltie Rescue took me in. I had an ear and skin infection. I do not mind the medication and I’m almost fully recovered. My teeth will be cleaned soon and I like it when my foster home brushes my teeth daily. I’m just the right size for the kitchen sink (weigh about 20 lbs.), so monthly baths are a breeze. When you are done with my bath, you can certainly use the hair dryer and brush. I will sit all day while you groom me. This will help for I am working very hard to get back my beautiful coat. I was neutered and have had all my vaccinations. I even have a microchip so you will never loose me. Isn’t that great!

I need someone who will help me with my medication, if needed; and to provide me with good food and even fresh fruits and vegetables twice a day. I hope you like to go on walks, take naps and play with me because I just simply adore human attention. I do need someone who is willing to learn how to live with a hearing impaired dog. It is not clear yet if this is condition is permanent; but we will need to learn hand signals just in case. Just a soft blow on my fur wakes me up to your requests.

I hope that you are interested in meeting me for I’m so looking forward to meeting you. Please make sure you have completed the online application on the Sheltie Rescue website.

Teddy Bear is in Orange County. Adopters from Southern California are especially encouraged to apply. To sponsor him, please make a donation on our website or email us for more information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in La Habra 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 La Habra 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 Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in La Habra paves the way for another one to be saved.
