The shelter staff think I am about 9 years old.

Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Hello, pardners! Ted is looking to be someone's buddy and go on some excellent adventures together! He is ready to spend Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Wild West journeys with you! This guy was laidback during his assessment: an easy, quiet walker on leash and accepting of types of handling that would make many other dogs defensive. He soaked up affection happily and stuck by the assessor like they'd lived a lifetime together. He did not guard food during his assessment, allowing the food to be removed by the assessor's hand. We recommend always leaving a dog alone when he eats, especially if he has something special like a bone, though. When Ted met Chica, a young female Bull Terrier, he was at first not so sure about her springy physical advances, but then he got into her vibe and they played for a while running around our large yard without incident. Meeting Snuggles, a small white male dog who peed in his general direction, Ted was pretty laidback--sniffed him and just co-existed quickly. Ted will likely be suited to a lot of adopters' lifestyles, as long as he gets plenty of love. CJB
