About Teddy

Teddy is a big, friendly, clumsy, cheeky, cuddly, playful, noisy, stubborn, full on fluff ball, so basically your typical young Samoyed!

He is very strong on the lead & will need some work with recall but otherwise has basic training. He's on a special diet that will need to be continued & has had quite serious eye problems in the past so will need regular monitoring & eye drops. He also has a time consuming grooming requirement. Samoyed experience would be a benefit. They're not a breed that like to be left alone much & are good at creating their own entertainment (mischief) if unsupervised for long periods!

Teddy would make a good family dog with kids of around 10+ that are used to being licked & bundled into - his eyesight isn't the best! - or in an adult household. He will be fine living as an only dog or with another, as long as it's not too small, nervous, or fragile! He's never lived with cats so we wouldn't risk it.
