Meet Theo! Theo is a 4-5-year-old golden boy who was rescued in Turkey and made the journey here to the US a few weeks ago.  He has been settling in at his foster home and is now ready to find his forever family.

Theo has a big, happy boy.  He always has a wagging tail and a smile on his face.  He is on the bigger side and will need a family dedicated to helping him lose some much-needed weight!  He loves his walks, and being outdoors, so with some time and building up his endurance he should be able to lose the weight without a problem.

Theo is currently living with a small dog, and three young boys ranging in age from 7-10 years old and gets along very well with them all.  He would love a bigger dog to play with in his forever home.  He even does well with cats!  Theo is getting a couple of short walks a day to help build up his endurance.  He does pull on leash, but walks much better with a front clip harness, and isn’t reactive on leash.

It became clear early on after Theo arrived that he was not used to living in the house.  It took him a good week or so to get comfortable living inside the house, and will still spend most of his time enjoying the yard and coming in for couch time and attention from his foster family when he feels like it.  Having access to a grassy yard will be a requirement for Theo’s placement and success in his forever home.  He has done great with potty training when having access to the yard, too, though he will need more reinforcement with a new change until he gets on a schedule and knows where he is supposed to potty.

Theo is very food and toy-motivated and is definitely a velcro doggie.  He would do very well in a home with someone home most of the time, and with a doggie playmate.  He would also enjoy a home with kids over 5 years old.

If you think Theo sounds like a good fit for you, and you have what he’s looking for in his forever home, please fill out our adoption application here: Adoption Application
