Theo is a gorgeous Brindle boy with a flash of white on his chest and a black face that just screams to be kissed. Theo is a confident boy who loves to play in the yard with his siblings, or play tug with his siblings. At the end of the day, before we go to bed, he has to have a snuggle with mom on the couch.
As adorable as this boy is, he will be happiest with a sedate household that just want an adorable loving guy to snuggle with. He will not be a running companion, nor will he do well with lots of stairs. But Theo loves to go in the car and slow walks around the neighborhood.
Theo is anxious to learn and will be an awesome family member.
He is best suited to a family with a yard. He has grown up with Chihuahua's and larger dogs and is a very compassionate guy who plays gently with his friend who is special needs. He was a bottle baby and has only known love and affection. Theo has a depth perception problem so doesn't like to do stairs or cross over colors that he isn't familiar with. Like on walkway crossings.
Theo has a genetic defect and both of his back knees have had TPLO surgery to correct. His right ankle fluxates, but there is nothing to be done with it.
This young man is perfect. He loves to cuddle and lives his treats. Theo has the sweetest purring sound when he is playing with the other dogs. He sounds like a bull horn when he gets nervous. I cant imagine anyone could love this boy more than I do, but he is available for adoption to the right family who can care and love him.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this dog. You can apply online at www.aarfhouston.org/forms . Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet. Thank you for considering a rescue!
