Hopkins County Humane Society’s Pet of the Week Monday, June 5

Meet Teddy, a lively and lovable 9-month-old Border Collie who is eagerly searching for his forever home. Teddy’s striking appearance, with his black and white coat and intelligent eyes, is only surpassed by his delightful personality and incredible intelligence.

Teddy is a natural with children, displaying an innate understanding of their needs and an unwavering patience. He is gentle and affectionate, always eager to offer a warm snuggle or a playful romp in the backyard. Teddy’s boundless energy and love for exploration make him the perfect companion for active families who enjoy outdoor activities and adventures.

When it comes to other animals, Teddy has shown great potential for coexisting peacefully.

Although introductions and proper socialization would still be necessary, Teddy has demonstrated a positive response to cats. His curious and friendly nature makes it likely that he would adapt well to a household with feline friends.

While Teddy has proven himself to be a social butterfly, he would prefer to be the solo dog in his new home. His desire for undivided attention and affection means he would thrive in an environment where he can receive ample one-on-one time with his humans. Teddy is incredibly intelligent, a hallmark trait of the Border Collie breed, and would benefit from mental stimulation and training sessions to keep his sharp mind engaged and content.

Teddy is an accomplished learner, already familiar with basic commands such as sit, shake, lay down, and rollover. His willingness to please and his quick grasp of new concepts make him an ideal candidate for further training. Whether it’s learning new tricks or engaging in stimulating activities, Teddy’s intelligence will impress and inspire his new family.

When it comes to playtime, Teddy is an enthusiast. He adores his toys and has a particular fondness for games of fetch. His agility and athleticism make him a natural when it comes to chasing and retrieving. Teddy’s zest for life and love for play ensures that he will keep his family entertained and on their toes.

As Teddy embarks on his search for a forever home, he brings with him a captivating personality, a love for children, a tolerance for cats, and an unwavering loyalty. With the right family who can provide him with the attention, mental stimulation, and love that he deserves, Teddy will flourish and become an inseparable part of their lives. If you’re seeking a devoted and intelligent companion to join your family, Teddy the Border Collie eagerly awaits the opportunity to shower you with love and bring endless joy to your home. 🐾
