|Teddy is a pure-bred Newfoundland. His fur is black and white (called “Landseer”) and he is an extremely handsome and sweet boy. Teddy gets tons of attention and adoration from passerby when he’s out in public. He was born March of 2014 in suburban Seattle. True to his breed, Teddy loves the water and is affectionate and gentle with grown-ups, children, and other dogs. Teddy grew up with another dog and an infant/small child for the first four years of his life and has been a great family pet. He is a pro at playing fetch in the water, and he does reasonably well playing fetch on land (he is well motivated by dog-treats). He loves going for walks and playing in dog parks. Teddy is house trained and is comfortable both inside and outside the house.
Teddy is triggered by people riding things with wheels and lunges at them if not restrained. During an off-leash trail hike Teddy lunged at a cyclist and bit him once. No permanent damage was done, but it’s no longer safe for Teddy to be around cyclists or kids on scooters. Teddy’s family is sad to say goodby to him and hopes Teddy finds a new loving home in a rural area or elsewhere, away from his triggers (Wheels!).
Teddy has no known allergies or health issues. Teddy’s fur requires maintenance – a thorough brushing a few times a week, and a good washing once a month. His cost for food, grooming, and health maintenance has been approximately three hundred dollars per month.
Our plan at Milo is to be very selective as to where Teddy goes, and with whom. He is truly a sweetheart and highly adoptable, but we want him, and those on wheels, safe. Perhaps a rural home is the way to go... and we will likely move him to our Sanctuary where he can have space and perhaps swim!!
At Milo we want, and have promised the best for Teddy. Space and a place near the water is what we hope for!
$650 adoption fee.
