My name is Teddy and I am a dapper senior. I joined a loving home where I can rest, but still have playmates for those times when I do feel spry. My fosters let me have time to myself for naps, even though my foster mom just wants to hold me all the time. But, she doesn't do this because it will trigger coughing. The coughing is from the heartworm damage to my lungs. I am heartworm free, but I have some side effects from it and the coughing is one of them. Sometimes when I cough, I piddle a little.
I do like to sit on the couch with my fosters and enjoy the quiet time. I also like to lay on the cool floor, my fosters think this helps with my "Itchies." I have sensitive skin and have special food for my allergies.
My fosters will set out my food for me and sometimes I will eat it right away and sometimes I won't. I'll eat when I want to.
I like going outside and smelling. There is lots to smell here!! I have a big yard where I can walk, lay down, explore, and smell!! I smell other dogs, rabbits, deer, and who "nose" what else :)
I am quiet. My kennel door is left open and I can go in anytime to make my "nest" with my afghan and can have quiet time and relax whenever I want. I do have my favorite toys and there are quite a few beds around my home for me to lay in. 
I've only been here alittle while but, to my fosters I seem to fit in just great here.  This is a great home to spend my golden years in.

Due to his many medical issues Christian will be spending the rest of his time with his foster family. He is avaiable for sponsorship.
