Teddy is an adorable 13 year old terrier who came into rescue because his elderly owners were unable to look after him. He is currently in a foster home near Swindon.
He has a very sweet nature and takes everything in his stride. Life is an adventure – he loves walks and outings and is generally very well behaved out and about although he can sometimes be a little strong on the lead. He has no recall as he is deaf. He is good in the car and seems to enjoy travelling.
He lived happily as an only dog in his last home but he’s great with other dogs and currently lives with a variety of dogs in his foster home. He ignores chickens and is fine with cats.
Teddy gets very anxious and whines and barks when left alone, so needs a home with someone around most of the time.
He has always slept on owner’s bed where he settles well and sleeps through the night, but he can no longer manage stairs safely and needs to be carried up and down. At 6.5kg he is quite easy to carry – or of course a bungalow would be ideal. He will cry if left downstairs on his own.
Health – he has a heart murmur and is on Vetmedin for this. He seems to be completely deaf. He is neutered and microchipped and has been wormed and flea treated. He appears to have a flea allergy so flea treatments will need to be kept up to date.
