Teddy is extremely loving and is very playful with both of his dog house mates, Loki (mastiff/ boxer) and Zeus (jackhuahua). He will joyfully stay by your side for hours, in exchange for a few head rubs, but is most happy when he gets to run out in the country and play tag with his friends.

He requires an owner who is experienced and patient, who will be willing to guide him in proper walking etiquette as he tends to pull and have slight leash frustration when another dog is close. Since 3 weeks of having him, he has impressed us with his fast learning capabilities and mannerism.

Teddy is up to date with his routine vaccines.  He is good on a scheduled feed, no allergies, and not a picky eater.

Teddy loves to chew bones! Definitely a work dog who requires a good amount of mental stimulation and physical exercise. He is wary of other strangers and requires a patient owner who will provide slow introductions. Once he has been accustomed to his surroundings and a consistent schedule, he can be your greatest best-friend!

Teddy is good with commands, and learns very quickly. He learned “go to your bed” and “paw” in one day. He is good at staying by your side and being called back when he is running with his friends at a distance in the country. He sits or lays down for most of the car ride. He is crate-trained and often goes in there on his own to chew his bones or when the household quiets down. He requires training walking on a leash.
