During the holiday season of Christmas, many people look forward to enjoying their time with their families and friends.
Theo, a four-year-old Yorkshire Terrier, who was abandoned at the vet by his family was due to be euthanized.
The family decided they could no longer take care of him.
The vet took one look at Theo and after inspection of his health, knew there was no good reason to put him down.
He was then sent to Friends of Rescue, Northern Ireland. He is now looking for a new forever home.
It is not totally clear why the family wanted to get rid of him and have him put down, but thankfully that won’t happen.
The shelter writes: “Theo is “showing signs of a candidate for trachea issues,” but he doesn’t require any treatment and that “all is well.”” Source
Theo has since been with a foster mom who is taking care of him while he gets applications for a forever home.
His foster mom described him as playful and somewhat hyper. Also, if he gets 1 – 2 walks a day he can “settle for periods, and he’s good at night time.”
Apparently, Theo is nearly fully housetrained yet still requires a little work. He also has a hard time being alone.
“Theo would be best in a home with someone active who can give him the attention he needs.”
Theo has been in the shelter since October, and the shelter is hoping he gets a forever home by Christmas.
Theo is located in Derry, Northern Ireland. If you are interested in giving this sweet dog the home he deserves, you can reach out through his pet adoption website.
