Ted needs a home
Tuesday April 15th

This is Ted. He is an 8 year old purebred Shih Tzu with a lovely, friendly nature. Ted recently came into our care and is now in good hands, however that hasn’t always been the case for this sweet little man. Ted spent most of his life working hard at a breeding establishment, creating puppies for the demanding pure-breed market. During this time he was not cared for to the standards that he deserved, and after that he was passed on from place to place with no home that he could call his own. We want to give Ted the opportunity now to live the rest of his life as a treasured pet; to experience freedom and enjoyment in the way that dogs so love to do. Ted has some medical issues with his teeth and hips, which we are planning to treat as soon as possible and will give full details to the potential owner in due course. For the meantime we are looking for the right home for this cute little fellow, so we can be sure of the best outcome for him, ensuring his ultimate happiness. Please contact us if you are interested in providing a loving environment for Ted. Ted's adoption fee is $200 - which includes desexing, microchip, vaccination, dental work, general health check, worming and flea treatment. You can reach us by phoning the office (03 473 8252), by emailing us (office@otago-spca.org.nz), or calling in to see us at the SPCA Animal Centre, 1 Torridon St, Opoho.
