Hi there! My name is Teddy and I am an approximately 4 year-old, 84 lb Teddy Bear in the body of a handsome German Shepherd.
I am a very sweet and SUPER SMART GSD. I am looking for large breed (or better yet) savvy GSD folks who can work with a doggo that’s probably too smart for my own good.
As it’s common with my kind, we Shepherds have a hard time when we lose our families. We tend to develop separation anxiety when our loved ones leave our side. We try to seek them out in the home even when you step out to go get mail outside. I need a lot of time and patience and a committed family who can help me understand that I won’t be left behind ever again… I am looking for either a foster home or even better a forever home that knows Shepherds and is willing to put the time and energy into me.
I promise that I will bring you love, protection and loyalty like you’ve never thought possible. I want to be your loyal best friend forever. I am not a “this is my first dog” sort of dog.
Please read the following carefully:
•My ideal family would be a family who has space in a more rural environment. Cars, bicycles, other people and dogs coming and going get me riled up and I would prefer to decompress in a more quiet part of town.
•My ideal family would have Shepherd experience. It’s a thing, we Shepherds have typical quirky traits that Shepherd people “get” and it would be awesome for someone to know what I’m trying to say and do.
•My ideal family would have multiple family members, ideally older kids at least 12 and over, as I am a big boy who would LOVE to have all the attention possible. I would love to make up for lost time and love on and get love back.
•My ideal family understands that I am one smart guy and I can open doors! I figure out the handles pretty easily and would do my best to run after you if you leave because, of course, I’m your shadow! I want to be with you all the time because I am scared and need reassurance I won’t be left behind ever again.
If there is a family out there willing to take a chance on me, I will bring the best of me once I am comfortable. I am a sensitive big guy and will love you forever like no other before.
I could potentially do well with another well matched large dog, but ideally I would be your only pet for the time being because I would love to soak up all the attention for now.
If you think I might be a match for you, please submit an application and a volunteer will respond to you soon. (BS)
