Quick Bio:
-dog rescue

July 30th 2006

Walks in the park; rides in the car; snuggling with Dad on the couch

NONE! This dog can handle anything

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Food:
The Ted loves all food.

Favorite Walk:
He loves the jungle gym at an elementary school.

Best Tricks:
When the alarm goes off in the mornings; he ever so gingerly gets on the bed for cuddles during snooze time

Arrival Story:
One of the local rescues in the area had three dobes they were trying to adopt out so we went to inquire about adding a third. The first two were extemely adoptable. Then came Teddy. The rescue organization explained how they came to pull him. He was basically left for dead at a shelter. The rescue organization took him on and had more than one trip to the ER. One look at this heartworm infected, massive sinus infected, extremely thin dobe stole our hearts. Ted would get the best home we could afford him for however long he stayed with us.

Ted has the biggest heart ever.

Forums Motto:

My Dearest Teddy,

Your start in life was one of the worst I have ever seen. And while you were only with me for a few months, you touched my heart. I was so happy to see you thrive in a new, safe and loving environment. Your eccentricities endeared me to you. And with the sudden passing of Taz, gave Shea a diversion. Shea misses you. As do I.
Adopting these discarded wonders, no matter what state they come into my life with, provides me with endless joy. Ted will be a hard one to get over. The neglect he suffered from some careless owner had me seething with rage this weekend. Teddy had the kindest soul. And I know he was met by my other dobes rescues from the past 25 years: Sasha, Sydney and my beloved Taz.

My remaing rescue Shea has not left my side. At a mere 4yrs of age, she has become the dobe that I need. She gently licks the tears from my eyes and allows me to hug her until the sobs of grief wear me out and I fall asleep. Losing both Taz and Ted within four months of each other has been and emotional ride for me personally. It has been Shea that in all honesty, kept me from spiralling off the planet.

Now I need to pay it forward with her and allow her the time to grieve, having lost her two pals. She deserver it.
