Ted from Lakeland is featured here today.

My name is Ted. I have a friend named Amy who volunteers here at the shelter. She is my best bud and knows a lot about me. She spends time with me playing ball, which is one of my FAVORITE games to play. She takes me to outreach events and she trained me in the Bright Futures training class. I know “sit”, “down”, “wait”, “off”, “stay”, and “here”.

She even takes me to work with her for the day now and then where she has learned that I am housetrained and will go to the door to tell her that I need to go out.

I love other dogs, they really bring out the best in me. In my previous home I was even really good friends with some small dogs and we got along totally great! I can go home with kids of all ages as well, and I think that’s super exciting.

I have to apologize for something though…  If you like me enough to take me out for a walk during your visit here at the shelter, I may not be able to give you the “connection” that you’re looking for while you consider adopting a new friend. You see, I’m a bird dog and I have a job to do when I go out—point birds. Here at the shelter they do their absolute best to take care of me, but they’re not able to meet all of my needs. I need to run around, point birds, play ball and burn off my energy. If I can have my needs met I am absolutely capable and happy to bond and connect with my human friends. When I go to work with Amy she sees a completely different dog than I am here at the shelter. I am interested in treats, and in cuddling with her and in playing a little bit of kissy-face as well!

Ted and his best buddy, Amy, who volunteers at Lakeland Animal Shelter.If you don’t believe me, just call my friend Amy. They have her phone number at the front desk. She’ll be happy to tell you everything she’s learned about me. AND, she’s even willing to volunteer her time for dog meetings, home visits, etc. if you should need her to. Can you believe she loves me that much? Yep, she does!

Oh, P.S.!  There’s a sign on my kennel that says I can jump fences. While it may be true that if I am in a fenced in area & see a bird that I want to get to or if you were to leave me outside alone in a fenced in area I might try to get out, I might add that my previous owner did not have a fenced in yard and did not tie me up when I went out to potty or play. If my people are outside WITH ME, I do my running around, bird pointing, and ball playing and come back to the humans I love. My friend Amy is in the process of proving this about me!

I just need a second chance. Maybe you could give me that chance?  —Ted
