Don’t let his name throw you off, this boy is an absolute teddy bear. T. Rex is estimated to be around 8 years old and weighing 110, he is a big gentle giant. He was found as a stray in Oakland, and when no one claimed him Rocket Dog agreed to find him a home.
He’s got a few lumps and bumps, but hopefully you can overlook that part and love him for who he is. He has patchy elbows and a few lumpy spots on his back, likely from neglect. He has arthritis in his hind legs but gets around just fine. Just don’t ask him to go for a 5 mile run with you!
He is a very friendly boy who wags his little bunny stump tail when you scratch under his chin or give him some pets. He has been tested with other dogs and is non-reactive and easy-going, though not too interested in engaging in play. He walks nicely on a leash at a leisurely pace without pulling.
We would prefer to find him a home without kids, or kids age 12 and up with some dog experience. He has not been cat tested.
If you would like to meet T. Rex the Teddy Bear, submit an application and a volunteer will be in touch. (KF)
