Teddy - Adoptable

Do you enjoy casual days lounging on the couch or sunbathing in your yard? Do you love the sweet soulfulness of senior dogs? Are you looking for a mellow, easygoing canine companion?

Teddy is a 15 year old ShihTzu mix. He loves everyone he meets and presently lives with other dogs and cats although he tends to keep to himself and doesn't interact with them much. His favorite things are sniffing around the fenced yard, mealtimes and settling into a cozy bed that has been fervently fluffed. He is a charming little dog who is calm and very zen like in his ways. He is housetrained and rarely has an accident if you follow his cues. Speaking of cues, he is very able to let you know what he wants and will guide you with endearing little grunts when he wants up or off the couch, his meal or your attention.

Teddy is a true Misfit and does have some special needs. He is blind and almost completely deaf however this does not stop him from leading a fulfilled life and he can find his way around very well.
Teddy has some medical needs and his future family will have to be prepared to care for his skin issues, hypothyroid and the beginnings of kidney disease. He requires several medications, regular baths and a special diet and we can go into specific details of Teddy's treatment plan with anyone who is serious about making him part of his family.

Teddy is ready to retire into his Lap of Luxury.
