Pet of the Week: Teddy the dog

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – In today’s edition of Pet of the Week, we introduce you to Teddy, a 1-year-old male Chihuahua/Short Coat Mix. Lee Chambers from Dakin Humane Society tells us more about Teddy, and other events going on at Dakin.


Teddy is just a year old and is full of fun and energy. He’d be best suited for a home with children over 10 years old, and we don’t know his history with cats, but if you have a kitty at home, just ask our staff and they can check.  Also, if you already have a dog, bring your pup to Dakin in Springfield so they can meet Teddy and see how they get along.  Teddy is house trained and will adjust nicely to a new home, especially because he is friendly and cheerful.  You can plan a lot of fun outings this summer with Teddy, as he will want to get a lot of outdoor exercise and playtime.
