Teddy (formerly named Theo by the Stockton shelter) was found as a stray wandering the streets of Stockton.
Gorgeous, gentle, mellow, and friendly the shelter was surprised his owners did not come looking for him. The vet estimated Teddy to be approx. 18 months old.
Since being in his foster home, Teddy has learned a lot of new things and has a new playmate to keep him company In just a couple of weeks, he learned that a crate was a good thing, especially because his meals were served in there and now comfortably sleeps through the night without a peep. Teddy also appears to be housebroken and has already learned "sit".
Teddy loves his foster sister, Heidi, and plays with her a lot. Their favorite games are tug-of-war, wrestling, and chase - with Teddy chasing Heidi. Teddy is good with the two 10lb chihuahua mixes - he ignores them & they ignore him.
However, like all GSDs, Teddy "needs a job". He's already fancied himself a gardner, pulling out his foster's rake and wheelbarrow. His foster mom feels that Teddy would do well in almost any type of home (or family) just so long as they are committed to keeping Teddy occupied and entertained with daily exercise and training....or he will find his own way to entertain himself. She also feels Teddy would be OK by himself but would really enjoy the company of a playful playmate.
