A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...
Meet Teddie ... Of course there should be a lot more of him, as he's really quite emaciated, around 10 pounds underweight. Teddie is a 5 year old purebred Cocker Spaniel who comes to us from Animal Care and Control of NYC, where he was turned in as a stray. He'd obviously gone hungry for quite a long time, so could not fend for himself. It's conceivable as well that he was deliberately starved, we will simply never know. Despite it all, Teddie is friendly and responding well to lots of TLC. For the moment he remains rather fragile so we recommend an adult only home or a home with kids who are older and very gentle. Teddie is otherwise a healthy dog who is current on all shots, microchipped and has tested heartworm negative. He will be neutered and treated to a dental cleaning as well as a professional grooming prior to going home.
