When a dog enters a shelter, his or her chances of adoption often depend on several factors. Age and appearance are high up on that list. Sadly for Teddy, he was passed over, time and time again, for puppies.
Teddy was surrendered by his owners because they wanted to put him down, and the veterinarian knew that he had a lot more life left to live. Sidewalk Specials saw his potential too. Sure, he was older. Sure, he was a bit underweight and in need of some medical treatment, but underneath all his “issues” was a loving dog, capable of finding a family to spend the rest of his days with. Now, they just had to find that perfect family.
But another adoption day would go by and there was Teddy, left behind, until social media saved him! By sharing Teddy’s story and his photo 389 times, that special someone saw Teddy and knew that he was her fur baby!
Now, Teddy is in his forever home, being a happy dog, enjoying life with his new mama and his new siblings. Teddy’s story is a reminder to us all to never give up, to never throw in the towel, because you never know when something spectacular is out there waiting for you!
