Another Sorta Small SPCA Update

We have had so many adoptions at the SPCA this year.  It’s been pretty amazing to see such fast turnover.  I don’t get to know many of the dogs before they are already set to be adopted.  Last week’s adoption of Captain Hook was so much fun.  I would like to share with you another special SPCA adoption story.

Meet Teddy.  Teddy came in with a lot of other dogs from a hoarding situation.  Most of the dogs were fairly socialized with one or two behavioral exceptions.  For Ted, that exception is the leash and he gets frightened quite easily.  Working with Ted on the leash usually means walking him with other dogs, which makes the task easy, since he loves being around other dogs.  A lot of his fellow hoarding buddies were being adopted last week, most of them small, but Ted got his day of adoption on Saturday.

Because we adopted him!

Ted is a blue heeler mix.  He’s very smart.  He learned the doggie door within the first ten minutes of being home (which is a record among all of the dogs who have been in this house, even Jerzee).  He has also already learned sit, as long as there is a treat involved.  I love his ‘sit.’  He plops down, it’s so cute.

Because of his past, he is unsure around anyone, but he will follow me around all day, falling asleep wherever I am.  We’ve taken him on two walks, and he’s unpredictable.  The first time, he was just fine for the most part. But the second time, something spooked him and he laid down in the road.  Luckily, he’s small enough that I could pick him up!

We are loving our new addition to our family.  I think it’s perfect that he’s here for Valentine’s Day.  He is definitely a sweetheart!
