At 9 weeks of age & 12 lbs Teddy may be a little bit of a thing, but he already has a great big personality. Teddy is a beautiful Lab mix puppy and probably won't be pocket sized for much longer - we expect him to be 40 to 60 pounds when fully grown. He is very playful and social, and his favorite activities are chasing balls and cuddling with his people. This confident little guy enjoys being around his furry foster siblings, and is happy to join in all their activities. Teddy has been learning an awful lot in his foster home. Smart and highly motivated, he is working on his house training and will go outside to take care of business, although overnights are not yet accident free. He walks short distances on a leash, but is such an alert and curious fellow, and there is just so much outside to explore! He is an avid learner and a people pleaser, and continued training should be easy peasy. Teddy is an affectionate and fun loving puppy, and will be a wonderful companion to an active family. Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a dog from A New Chance Animal Rescue (https://anewchancear.org). We are a 501c3, tax deductible organization. ANCAR is a foster-based rescue, and we adopt within a 90 mile radius of Bedford Hills, NY. You will find the adoption application here: (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-application/). All fields on the application must be completed. Please read about the adoption process (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-process/) so you'll know what to expect when you submit. Our dogs are in foster care and we do NOT have a shelter or boarding facility. AN APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED IN FULL AND APPROVED BEFORE A DOG CAN BE MET. This is a firm policy. Our busy volunteers are not able to respond to questions about the dog or dog meeting requests in the absence of an application. We know these dogs very well because they are in foster care. Please read the profiles of the dog(s) you are interested in prior to submitting an application. If there are specific requirements stated (ie: Fenced Yard or Canine Friend Required) these are included because they are vital to the happiness, health, safety and adoption success of that dog. We are only able to save as many dogs as we have foster homes (https://anewchancear.org/foster/faqs/) and resources for. We provide medical care including vaccinations, testing, deworming, spaying/neutering and microchipping before transporting our dogs. We provide all supplies, preventatives and any follow up vet care necessary while they are in foster care. These costs are high and the number of lives we can save is entirely dependent upon donations from people like you. We do not receive funding from private foundations or government sources. If you can find room in your heart to help us, with any amount, we are truly grateful (https://anewchancear.org/help/donate/). We are a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax-deductible. It is only through the kindness of supporters like you that we are 'changing lives...one tail at a time' by providing our dogs with 'A New Chance.' (https://anewchancear.org) Thanks so much.
