|Breed (mixed):||Maltese / Yorkshire Terrier|
Teddy is an 8 year-old, 8 lbs long-haired Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier mix male dog. He is a healthy boy, up to date on his vaccines, neutered and will be microchipped.
Teddy enjoys his walks (although he’s not fond of winter sweaters) and is ok with other dogs (but no cats). He loves the car and sleeps when riding in the backseat (will bark at times), does not need a crate at home, sleeps on a dog bed at night and likes to sleep-in every morning. Teddy is not destructive in the home, is house-trained, eats well twice a day, enjoys exploring the backyard - he needs a fenced backyard. Teddy will bark when someone comes to the front door but that’s improving - thus an apartment would not be ideal. He is cautious meeting new people, needs time to warm up to people but once he knows you, he will approach and loves attention and snuggling in your lap!
Teddy was not socialized with adults or children and had no limits or guidance in his original home. He developed fear biting and nervous barking. His rehabilitation so far has been very good and he’s made great progress - he just needs an experienced, patient person who will continue working on this with him.
Because of his dominant nature, Teddy will need a home where the humans are in charge and will give him consistent rules and expectations. A home without children (including visiting grandchildren, etc.) is best for Teddy.
Teddy is an affectionate little guy who just needs the right quiet patient home where he can continue learning.
