Hi! My name is Teddy! I am a 6 year old toy poodle looking for my forever home. 

I know what you may be thinking...sweet, adorable, toy poodle who might be suited for sitting on a couch all day snuggling. Well as much as I do enjoy a cuddle with my favourite person, the stereotype couldn't be further from the truth. I am a high energy boy who loves to run and play and explore! I absolutely need to go to an active home who will give me the time and attention I need to be my best self! 

I have a bit of a sad story. Unfortunately, I developed some resource guarding issues as a young dog, and my previous owners surrendered me, I was even almost euthanized for it. My foster Mom has been showing me that I don't need to guard things, and that playing WITH people is way more fun than playing on my own. I've even learned to play nice with the 5+ dogs in my foster home! I prefer the small ones and the cats, but even the big dogs aren't as bad as I once thought. Because of the issues I'm working on, my perfect home will not have young children. Everyone in my new home will need to be able to understand my boundaries and rules.

I love to learn new tricks and I am learning to like going in the car because that means new adventures! I'm even starting to enjoy my crate because foster mom puts all the best treats and toys in there. I have a silly, goofy personality and make my foster parents laugh all the time. At heart, I'm really just a shy dog who's learning the big ways of the new world...and I think I'm really digging it! 

From my foster mom:  Teddy came to use with some pretty severe resource guarding issues. Although he has come so far in the time he's been with us, we are asking any potential adopters to be fully aware that this is a process and not a solution. We ask anyone who would like to adopt him to attend an information and training session on resource guarding with the team at Hanks Have. Teddy has thrived with positive reinforcement techniques and we aim to find him a home who will continue this work and give him the best life possible.

To apply for Teddy, please fill out an application here: Adoption Information (hankshaven.ca). Please ensure to describe your experience with resource guarding as he will need owners with experience.

* Teddy is being fostered in Bracebridge *
