Teddy Bear gets a new home - pics

I always love posting these happy stories. Teddy Bear was at the Montreal SPCA for many months. He is a great dog and I walked him many times and he has just found his forever home.

The following is by Marie-Claude, dog-walking program coordinator. Enjoy - Marko

"Hello Team!!!!!

After 7 months of waiting, hoping and wishing, our beloved Teddy Bear found his forever home yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

Teddy now lives in Kingston , Ontario with Lisa, her boyfriend, their 2 cats and their 2 dogs: a Jack Russel and an "SPCA mix"!!! Teddy and his family have a house and a fenced back yard!

Lisa and her boyfriend are in their late twenties. Both of them are personal trainers and they work totally different schedules so Teddy will never be alone!!!!! Teddy´s light seperation anxiety does not scare them: they once had a dog that was terrified of people and they succeeded in solving the problem. Should they need any help, they will give us a call and our student dog trainer Karine will be there for them! Thank you, Karine!!!!

How Lisa came to adopt Teddy is a very long story! In a nutshell, Lysanne, a journalist and huge animal lover whom the Board has been working with on a few projects, found her back when Teddy was in his 1st foster home with Mélodie. A series of events made a couple of meetings fall through and another one was scheduled for yesterday. Alanna, Jayne and I were all waiting for them. We waited for 2 hours and left when they did not show. What we did not know is that the couple had gotten lost and that they would arrive a few minutes after we left! Shucks!!!! But Alanna was there and spent 2 hours with them: she interviewed them and helped them introduce their 2 dogs to Teddy. They got along right away!!!! The Jack Russel showed Teddy who the boss would be by humping him and Teddy let him!!!

Lisa and her boyfriend promised to keep in touch and to send us pictures! They have even offered to bring Teddy to see us again!!!!

Boy, did I ever miss sharing good news like that with you guys!!! ..."
