Meet Teddy, a New Hope Cattle Dog Available For Adoption


 Meet Teddy


When Teddy first arrived, he was very scared and wanted to run away (which he did a couple of times, but always came back). Initially, he needed to be on-leash in the back yard to ensure his safety, but he has since graduated to being off-leash in the fenced yard. He is still afraid of new people and new environments, but has come a long way since we first got him and will warm up to the situation so long as it is not forced on him. His new family will need to slowly let him adjust to their surroundings and get used to their schedule before he can be independent. Teddy has done well with the foster family’s dog and has learned from him and another dog in his new home would be very beneficial for Teddy to learn from and take queues from. He typically looks to the family dog to determine how to react in certain situations that are uncertain or potentially stressful. Teddy has started to walk on leash around the neighborhood and does well until he encounters other people or animals and will want to flee. He has been getting better, but will need more exposure to this experience to gain more confidence. Teddy is a very caring, loving, and gentle dog and has never been aggressive in any situation. His initial reaction is to flee rather than fight if he’s nervous or scared. He appreciates a calm environment and would not do well somewhere that is noisy or chaotic. He enjoys getting head scratches and body rubs and will hang out with his foster family in the evenings watching television. He also enjoys being outdoors and running with the family dog for some play time. It’s sweet to see him sitting on the patio and peacefully looking out over the open space. He’s super cute and funny when he gets the zoomies both in the house and outside. He’s a happy boy and will make a wonderful addition to the right family!!
