Personality: Sweet Teddy was found wandering on her own near a school in San Antonio where a kind man rescued her and helped her find her way into GRR care. In her new foster  home she has quickly overcome her initial shyness. From day one, she has been awesome with their other dogs, with all interaction being positive.  Her core personality is calm, but she can get wound up and playful with the best of them.  She has no problems with sharing toys, food or space with the others. Quite the contrary, she seems to be thoroughly enjoying the company, and will throw her toys in the air and dance.  With that as an intro, she uses her paws to grab the other dogs to get them to play, and includes little noises to add to the excitement. The foster’s dogs were comfortable with her immediately, even with the animated invitations to romp.

 If Teddy does well with other canines, she is over the top with her humans. Teddy definitely has the Velcro gene, and is always 6 inches behind you wherever you go. She has been sleeping right by the bed at night, and when the lights go out, she is “out” as well and does not budge until morning. During the day, she places herself right next to her foster’s computer chair to offer any assistance with tough problems that might come up. Her attention is always on you and what you are up to.

Teddy's foster brags that she has not torn up or chewed on anything, and has shown no interest in counter surfing! If that wasn’t enough, she did pretty well during the recent epic thunderstorms. She got a little nervous, but accompanied by cuddling, she was fine.  As far as road trips, she lays down on the car seat and quietly enjoys the view.  On walks, Teddy will zig-zag back and forth to explore everything in sight.  She is not one to pull, and with some work she will do very well on the leash.

After only a few days, her foster says “She is a truly lovable girl; some family is going to fall in love with this one!”  Teddy says she’s not shy – don’t you be shy finding out about adoption.

 Ideal Home:    Teddy is so people-focused, it would be best if she was in a forever home with family members around during the day. Older children and adults would make perfect family members, but she is too active for the younger set.  Other dogs and cats in the home are icing on the cake in Teddy’s view.
