Teddy is a little Shichon dynamo and will charm his way into your home and your heart

Second Chance Small Dog Rescue in Elkhart has Teddy, 11 months, available for adoption.

This Teddy would be much more fun to play with than a stuffed teddy bear. At 11 months old, this little black and white Shichon weighs about 14 pounds and he should not get any bigger as an adult. Although Teddy can be shy at first, once he knows you he is playful and happy go lucky. He enjoys playing with the dogs at his foster home so a permanent home with another dog would suit him. Teddy loves to look his best and requires brushing and a good monthly grooming. Teddy is crate-trained for sleeping, housebroken, neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped. Teddy is looking for a “furever” home and if you desire a nighttime cuddle-buddy, then contact Second Chance Small Dog Rescue today and set up a playdate to get acquainted.
