On August 5, a senior Keeshond mix was surrendered by his owner to a busy animal control facility in southern California. The dog, named "Teddy," is listed at 11 years of age.
Shortly after Teddy's arrival to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Baldwin Park, a volunteer photographer visited him and wrote the following words about the homeless senior dog:
My name is Teddy. I am a very affectionate and friendly 11 yr old neutered male tricolor Keeshond mix. My owner left me here on august 5. Available now.
According to Wikipedia, Keeshond dogs are "very playful, with quick reflexes and strong jumping ability. They are quick learners and eager to please," and they are noted to be "excellent family dogs." Unfortunately, Teddy's particular likes and dislikes are a mystery - at this high intake, government run facility, biographies are not provided on the dogs who are in need of new homes.
Teddy needs a new a new guardian - his current kennel run is far from being anything close to a real "home." Please take a moment to network Teddy's information.
