“Oh Hey there everyone! I’m Ted. I am an 11 year old Weimaraner who weighs 65 pounds. You are seeing me here because I need to find a new home. My family has been so good to me and they are SO sad that they need to find another home for me but they are unable to keep me. They will tell you how loving and wonderful I am.

“I am good with other dogs, with kids and even cats! I would prefer a home with older kids though as the young ones, as cute as they can be, can be rough sometimes. As happens with all of us when we age, I can’t hear as well as I used to. My reaction times have slowed some. Toddlers and babies can be unpredictable.

“If you need to leave the house, that’s fine, just give me a potty break before you leave and I should be good for a few hours. If you have another friendly dog for me to hang out with when you have to go, it’s nice to have a buddy to hang out with. Since I’ve had one home all of my life, I hope you will understand that I may need some extra time to adjust and learn the ropes in my new home. I hear all dogs need that, whether we come from a shelter or are adopted out from an owner or rescue. You know, just like when humans move to a new place you have to learn about your new surroundings and such!

“Walks are fun to go on and I sure hope my new family will take me out so I can stretch my legs and sniff my new territory. I am good on leash and I can manage up to an hour on walks! Keeping a senior dog moving is so important to their health both body and mind. At this time I can still manage stairs. While my human says I don’t have any arthritis now, that could come so a daily joint support could help me remain moving well.

“When I have to go potty or when I’m hungry, I’ll let you know with a bark. Humans talk, dogs bark. We all need to communicate to tell others what we need, right?

“My person says I need to find a home soon so I’m hoping that will happen. If you can’t adopt me, maybe you can tell your friends to help me find my adopter? I appreciate the help!”
