Teddy loves to play, snuggle, and be your best friend. He knows many commands and listens well. He doesn't like to be alone, so he'd love to have another dog to play with while you're gone. If not, he's crate trained and is good outside if you have higher fences. He's great with other pets, including cats. He even plays with our cat. He doesn't mind our 2 year old, but he doesn't really play with her either. He needs more attention than we can give him since we have 2 more kiddos on the way.
