Please meet Terrific Teddy! Teddy is a 2-3 year old male Old English Mastiff who sadly came to rescue via the police when his owner sadly passed away and Teddy was found with the body. As you can imagine he was very sad and confused to find himself in a kennel after losing his beloved owner, and when we met him, we just had to bring him home with us.
Well, what can I say?! This lad is both stunning inside and out and can’t do enough for you, He is so focused on his human family and eager to please, sometimes he can be a bit boisterous in his eagerness to do as his told, but he means well! He especially loves to give you his paw which is more of a Wack than a gentle nudge when he wants attention. He is a happy bouncy pup full of playfulness and love once he knows you, like most Mastiffs he can be aloof with new people but a treat usually wins him over.
Teddy is fine with other dogs, in fact he adores them, he is also not bothered by cats!! Teddy loves dogs but we think he would prefer to be the only dog in the home or with one other dog with a similar nature, he is mostly a couch potato and boy does he hog the sofa – All 78/kgs of him!!
Teddy loves his toys, but doesn’t like to share them with other dogs. Teddy is castrated and while under anaesthetic he had his stomach stapled to avoid him getting a twisted stomach in the future (bloat), a common killer in the breed. He is microchipped, de flead and wormed.
Teddy walks perfectly on the lead and also has impeccable recall, He is a total star in every way and would be an amazing addition to any household! If I had the time to give him, he would be staying here, he has been with us since Christmas and is a diamond in every way.
Teddy can live with children age 10 years plus; due to his size he may knock smaller children over. Teddy will need an owner with a good knowledge of the breed and previous experience, and plenty of room and a big car!
Teddy is house trained, travels well and is fine to be left for short periods. Teddy knows sit stay paw, please, he is a very clever boy and literally cannot wait to learn more. Teddy is a big baby and loves his home comforts, he shares my bed with me every night as he just adores his humans!
