Teddy didnt know how to be a dog when we first got him. Afraid of the tv, of being pet, held, approached, he was ready to be nurtured. A few days into our trial, Teddy began vomiting, and coughing up blood. He had gastroentiritis! After getting his health back, Teddy slowly came out of his shell. He's still a bit unsure about walking on the lead, and always checking in with me with a big smile to see im still right behind him. He's obsessed with licking my face to show me he loves me (it's ALOT). We got another rescue Staffy – Bonnie, his new sister- from the same shelter to teach him how to play! With my four kids leaving the nest, the dogs company, love and adoration keeps my heart (and home) full!
