Hi guys! Welcome back to the blog!
I hope you’re all well and as excited as I am for a new post. As much as I’ve loved writing about kittens, there’s a special place in my heart for the monthly featured pet. Luckily for us, it’s that time again! Lee Shore takes pride in our adorable rescues, and I try not to play favorites, but today’s guy is a gem.
This beautiful boy is a Staffordshire Terrier, and has a sweet, playful personality. He’s about two-and-a-half years old, and was born on 12/21/16. He’s a medium sized boy, weighing in at approximately 55 pounds. Teddy is muscular, but he’s a medium energy dog, and would love simple activities like cuddling with his person, taking sun-naps, or going on a casual walk.
Teddy has been very friendly towards his foster family and other dogs, but he would do best in a home with other dogs that share his playful energy and are around his size. Teddy loves to make friends, and having siblings to romp around with would make him super happy.
Some background on Teddy: He came to us from our local shelter with an injured shoulder. Teddy was most likely the victim of a car accident, but we’re happy to report that he has made a full recovery. Though he has a (barely noticeable) limp, he has no physical limitations and is in no pain. We love stories with happy endings, and Teddy is definitely the hero in his!
Not only is Teddy cheerful and sweet natured, he’s also house trained, crate trained, and leash trained! He’s started obedience training, and is progressing very well, this definitely makes him a great pet to bring home. Continuing Teddy’s list of accomplishments (not trying to brag, but…) he is also neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his vaccinations, de-wormings, heartworm prevention and flea-tick medications!
Teddy’s adoption fee is $225, and he is currently with his foster parents in WNC. He is available to be picked up, or we have options for transport at an additional fee.
