Sweet, snuggly Theodore is looking for his forever home. He is a neutered male between 3-4 years old, up to date on all vaccines, microchipped, and very healthy. This is a special boy who originally comes from Florida, where he suffered a history of terrible abuse. Theo was housed with another dog who constantly attacked him, and caused him to become dog aggressive. In that home he was also kicked in the face, cracking four of his teeth, and stabbed in the eye with a stick. Theo has since had a dental surgery removing the four broken teeth. Theo found a home in NJ, and on his transport ride over, there was a terrible car accident in which the van he was in flipped over. He was so scared that when the police came, he took off and was lost in the Florida Everglades for 9 days. Theo’s new mommy arranged hundreds of people and even got a local news interview, and finally he was found. After Theo finally got home to NJ, his new parents were told of his history with other dogs and quickly learned he was a danger to the two other dogs in the house. They have worked with him for over a year trying to help his aggression and anxiety, but unfortunately it hasn’t worked out. Theo is miserable in the home he is in, and the anxiety caused by living with two other dogs has manifested into destructive behavior. He has been on several medications, but the environment just isn’t right. Theodore is looking for a homebody, who loves to cuddle. He could sleep all day with his people, curled up under the blanket in peace. He is good with children, though because of how nervous he can be sometimes, I would not place him in a home with young kids. Theodore can not live with any other animals. He has not been cat tested, but will sometimes chase small animals in the yard. He loves to play fetch, and he loves to swim. He is ALWAYS holding a toy in his mouth, as it brings him comfort.
