I'm very sad to report that the rescue group I'd hoped would pull Teddy from the shelter today has decided they can't take him. It was a really hard decision to make, and everyone is feeling bad all around. I don't blame them, really - Teddy is not the kind of dog that you see at mobile dog adoptions because he is very energetic; has unknown tendencies around children and other animals; and needs socialization training. But it's still hard.
I'm still hopeful that Nikki and I will be able to canvas the community boards and find a good potential adopter, but it's really going to take a special person - one who connects with Teddy and has the patience and time to get him on track - to make this adoption work, and we don't have much time.
But I'm sure that owner is out there somewhere!
