Meet Theo – Pending Adoption

Add to favourites

Meet Theo!

Once you get past his gruff exterior, Theo is the best dog ever! Theo had a hard life before coming into shelter care, he was not well treated or shown lots of affection. For this reason he keeps his guard up around new people, it takes time to win his love, but once you have he’s the happiest boy in the world! Theo loves the people who go above and beyond to win him over, the staff who stay late to cuddle with him or the volunteers who bring him special marrow bones, have all won his affection. Once you’ve won him over you’ll be greeted by the biggest tail wag and the most excited grin every time you visit him.

Theo was in really rough shape when he came to us, he had no hair on his back, neck, stomach, etc. and was covered in lesions. Additionally, he had infections in both ears and was underweight. Theo is still growing in his fur but he looks so different from when he arrived. He is finishing up his final vet treatments and would benefit from a local adopter who can bring him to the shelter for his remaining treatments (covered by the BC SPCA).

Theo is not a big fan of children and has had minimal exposure to them, we think he’d do best in an adult-only home. Theo is not well suited to live with cats. Theo is still working on his dog skills and would do best as the only dog in the home for now. Theo is also muzzle trained meaning he voluntarily will wear a muzzle if asked. Theo knows his basic commands and is fully housetrained.

We’ve had so much fun with Theo while he’s been recovering, it will be hard to see him off into a new home, but we are so excited to find him a forever family. Theo deserves a kind guardian who is patient and will let him warm up at his own pace. Theo is a very special dog whose quiet demeanour has warmed the hearts of all our staff and volunteers.
