Help a furkid in need

Hello, my name is Ted!


More about me

Male-neutered (Small). Jack Russell cross. Young-adult - DOB: 2015.

Shelter: Barking Mad Network (Gauteng)
Tel: 063 040 6071

Please help Ted find his forever home. He was rescued 2 years ago and in that time had never even known a foster home. Ted’s life in the township was miserable, he was neglected and left to fend for himself, he had very little human contact and was left chained to his kennel in his owners back yard his entire young life, he was reserved and cautious of people when we first found him but with time, love and attention Ted has learnt to trust. He is a loving, loyal little boy who craves the attention that he never received before and in return would be a truly devoted companion
Ted is a small dog (about Jack Russell size) and would be ideally suited as an only dog as he doesn’t share affection easily with other dogs. Perhaps that’s because he’s had no one to love him so any time he gets any attention he wants to lap it up all for himself. He adores people and is so loving ❤️. He wants to learn and is eager to please and will trot alongside a handler on and off a lead when there are no other dogs around to distract him, he listens and is attentive to a handler’s wishes and wants to be obedient
Ted hasn’t been tested with children and cats but will be if necessary, he has been looking for a home for such a long time, everybody seems not to notice him, perhaps it’s because he is so small and shy that he is overlooked, please if you would like to meet Ted he can be brought to your house for a “meet and greet” and you will see how truly awesome he is.
