Are you looking for an adventurous hiking buddy who doubles as a cuddle bug? Look no further than Ted! This lovable pooch adores walks and will happily accompany you on any outdoor adventure, rain or shine. When the hiking boots come off, Ted transforms into the ultimate couch potato, eager to snuggle and snooze by your side.

Ted's true joy comes from being close to his humans. He's a big cuddle bug who loves nothing more than being petted and scratched. He'll rest his head on your shoulder and snuggle in your lap, content and peaceful. Ted is also active and enjoys spending time outside, where he's been known to politely sniff noses with neighboring dogs through the fence.

Ted is a smart boy who already knows basic commands like sit, stay, down, and no. He understands which areas of the house are off-limits and doesn't get into anything that isn't his. He's very well-behaved and does well free-roaming the house when his foster is away. Plus, he's fully housetrained!

Ted would thrive in an active home with a parent who loves taking him for walks and hikes. He'd also appreciate having a yard to explore and enjoy, but he's flexible on that ask. Ted's affectionate nature makes him the perfect companion for someone who wants both adventure and endless cuddles.

Come meet Ted, the very affectionate gentle giant, and offer him a walk. He'll happily follow you home and become your loyal, loving companion!
Come meet your new best friend
