Border Collie / Mixed : : Female (spayed) : : Senior : : Large
Teddy is a 13-year-old, 59-lb border collie mix currently being fostered in Ocala, FL (Marion County). Don’t let this girl’s age fool you … she loves to play ball! She has spurts of energy where it’s all about the ball; although, she doesn’t appreciate it if another dog comes along and tries to steal it. She only likes balls. She has absolutely NO interest in plush toys/dog toys. When she’s not bringing you a ball, she enjoys taking naps on a comfy pillow or, best of all, belly rubs. She will sass you ever so politely and ask for more attention or maybe a delicious morsel. Teddy does have some arthritis in her hips and has to bunny hop over small steps; so a home with no steps is needed. She also prefers walking on area rugs or runners if the floor is slippery. Teddy has four large tumors; two under her front legs and two under her back legs. The vet believes they are fatty tumors. She also needs to lose a few pounds, but she is working hard on that. Teddy will need time to adjust to her new home. She requires a home with a fenced-in yard, in addition to one without small children or active dogs. She would do fine as an only dog. Teddy is spayed, heartworm negative, and up-to-date on all vaccines. As a senior, Teddy's standard adoption donation is $250, but it is only $150 for a senior adopter 65+ through our Seniors for Seniors program.
