Meet Teddy!

Teddy is a darling 10.5 lb red rough Griffon. He was just a year old in November 2006. Teddy has never met a stranger. He loves everyone, is a very happy and playful little guy and his tail never stops wagging. He needs a home where he can be involved in activities of his family. Teddy plays well with other small dogs.

Although he has had little training, Teddy learns very fast. He would thrive with someone who had the time and inclination to teach. In just a few days in his foster home he learned to sit and wait when a door is opened instead of running out, and to negotiate stairs. His one area of difficulty is with house training. He will need to be adopted by a patient, dog-saavy person who can be with him full-time for at least the first month or so in order to really pour effort into this area. When he finds the right person who can do this, the rewards will be great. Teddy truly is a wonderful, very loveable little dog. He is smart, very cute, exceptionally sweet and affectionate, and a typical Griff who just wants to be with his person. Teddy is healthy, up-to-date on vaccines and has been neutered.

Teddy is located in Peoria, Illinois.

If you would like more information, contact Beth. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
