Wonderful Teddy is ready to find his new home

Teddy for adoption

About Teddy






7 years 4 months.



Teddy or simply Ted is a handsome, older fellow who has finally been given the okay to look for a new home. Teddy was signed over to the RSPCA as he was sadly hit by a car and required extensive work to reconstruct one of his hind legs.

After months of cage rest, Teddy has started to exercise on his leg and is slowly building up his strength. In all honesty, you'd be amazed to see him try whiz round! After all his cage rest, you can imagine it being quiet boring and now Teddy craves attention and games. He hates it when people leave him, even if they walk into another room so Teddys new owners will have to continue working with Teddy to learn that it is ok to be left alone. His new owners would need to be around most of the time as he gets himself into a bit of a barky mess when left (and can bark and whine for long periods of time).

Teddy has been fostered with other dogs and gets on well with them (including other Terriers, Labradors and Great Danes). He can be shy with them to start with but on the whole, likes to chase and has a playful spirit so could be adopted to a house who already has another dog. Like wise, he would be ok being the only dog. Teddy is affectionate little dog and will make an lovely companion to someone who can give him the care and attention he deserves.

Would you like to give me a home?

Our Adoption Process

There are a few simple steps to go through before welcoming your new pet into your home.

Step 1:

Complete an application form

Once we have received your completed form, one of our animal welfare team members will contact you to arrange either a physical or virtual home visit before offering a viewing either at our Branch office, at the fosterer, or at the private boarding establishment the animal is being housed at.

Step 2:

Getting to know each other

We conduct a physical/virtual home check and once this has been passed, you can arrange to view the animal at a time that works best for you and the fosterer. Our home checks are conducted by our Animal Welfare Team who will contact you directly to arrange a time that suits you. Home checks are a common practice when adopting from most animal welfare organisations, and are done as part of our duty of care to ensure our animals find an appropriate home, so please do not be offended when asked to arrange one. They are nothing to worry about and our staff are suitably trained to make sure the process is as relaxed as possible – they are also a great chance for you to ask any questions you may have about your potential new pet.

Step 3:

Welcoming your new pet

Once the home visit has been conducted, we will arrange the adoption process to be completed at a time suitable to you and the fosterer. Please note: as part of your adoption from us, your new pet will be neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and will have received internal & external parasite treatment. If the animal is too young at the time of adoption, we will supply you with a voucher for neutering and pay for their first vaccinations. You will also be provided with a complete veterinary history of your new pet and 4 weeks pet insurance with PetPlan. This can take up to a week to be compiled so there may be a delay between a home visit being approved and the adoption appointment taking place.
