Hi my name is Teddy Bear. While I may be a big boi, I am a scared boi too. I need parents that will respect my boundaries and go slow with me. Once I feel safe, I am a loving fella. I would do best in a low traffic home so that I can relax. Not to brag but I am house trained, crate trained, and in a low traffic environment, I am a loose leash walker who moves at a slow pace. I love treats, especially cheese so hopefully my new family will have lots of cheese. Pets from the people I trust are another favorite treat of mine. Guess what: I have the potential to live with cat siblings. Currently, I'm learning how to be more confident around other patient dogs in Play Group here at APA! I am looking for a house with no kiddos and parents with the patience to move at my pace. If you give me my space and a chance to feel safe, I have so much love to give. Talk to a matchmaker to make my acquaintance today!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!

Come meet your new best friend

A Picture of Transport Success: Darla

Darla, the 8-month old Golden Retriever that was too scared to walk, was being taken to the euthanasia room in a wheelbarrow. But thanks to APA!s Transport Program Darla was given a second chance at ...
