Are you looking for a wonderful dog to brighten your days and keep you company? If you are looking for a sweet Peke, look no further because Teddy is your boy! Two year old Teddy Bear is an approximately 16 pound, handsome Pekingese who was found running the streets. He's full of personality and energy and LOVES to go for walks. His foster mom is working with him because he has a tendency to pull on his leash, but he is making progress.
Teddy is the ultimate escape artist. This boy is very smart at finding ways to run out of his home. This behavior dates back to his former life where he was left to his own devices and allowed to go out in a garden fenced-in yard which he would systematically jump, running the streets of his neighborhood. He clearly had a guardian angel watching over him because it's truly a miracle he wasn't killed. For his own protection, he must have a secure fenced yard. He has learned the word, NO, and he will respond to this. He is learning the rules of not taking off, and is a wonderful Peke. Like many Pekes, Teddy also needs his eyes wiped a few times a day. Like most Pekingese, Teddy is a bit stubborn, but he’s a quick study and has come a long way since figuring out that having a home with someone who cares and loves him has its rewards. He craves love and attention. Belly rubs are a favorite activity as well as playing with his foster siblings and many toys made available to him by his foster mom. She adores this little guy and reports that as time goes by he gets sweeter and sweeter.
This beautiful boy is neutered and current on all appropriate vaccines. His foster mom cleans his eyes on a daily basis to keep his skin from becoming irritated. Teddy lets her do this without any problems especially because he has learned that there is a treat in store for him if he behaves. He is quite food oriented and will work for treats.
This dog needs someone who will teach him boundaries and keep him on a schedule. He responds extremely well to routine, like most dogs do. Teddy is house-broken and will even let you know when he needs to be let outside.
