Thank you for taking a closer look at our Theodore! I hope that you will enjoy learning more about him. Theo is a 60 pound lab mix. He is about a year and a half old, and is nothing but a love bug. One of our staff members fostered him in order to get to know him better, and she'll be the first to tell you that he is a highly intelligent, friendly guy who loves other dogs, cats, and especially people. This handsome guy has never met a stranger, and he becomes quick friends with anyone he sees. Theo has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia, but our vet has said that he is doing very well on pain medication, so he does not need surgery at the moment. He is also heartworm positive. Theo does not let any of this slow him down, though. In fact, he enjoys going for walks around our pond and laying on our cool concrete floors. He is very smart and gets bored easily, so he will always keep you on your toes and laughing! We swear that he understands every word you say to him. If we can find an adopter that is close enough to use one of our vets, we will treat the heartworms at no cost to the adopter. More information is available upon request. If you call the shelter, ask for Morgan. She is the employee who fostered him, and she will be more than happy to give you more insight into his personality and quirks!
