The fact that you gave this dog a chance makes me so happy! :love: It seems like he's been through some tough stuff before he got to you. Too many people want everything "perfect" - perfect family, perfect pets, perfect friends, and too many people and animals are neglected because nobody bothers to look past the labels. My folks are not allowing me get a dog yet but when I do I hope to adopt. :)

Yes, adopting really is a wonderful thing. You might get an animal with some issues, but then again, getting one from a breeder doesn't guarantee it won't have any, either. But to see this creature get better over time and happier is such a beautiful thing, and so so satisfying. :heart:

i have a dog too, a got her around Christmas last year and I raised her from less than 2 months old. she has the exactly opposite problem - she LOVES dogs...and everyone...and everything... and keeps dragging me across the neighborhood. XD

Yes, I agree. If I get another dog in the future it will be a shelter dog. There are so many that need adoption here, in Bulgaria. But my dog's mum belonged to my cousin and died when she was giving birth. Only 4 out of the 9 puppies survived, and my cousin's family were keen to give them away, since taking care of them was just too much work. My dad also took one and now they are inseparable. :D

Teddy sounds really sweet. :) He is lucky that he found a nice family to take care of him. :3

Aaaaw, it must be a wonderful experience to raise a puppy from such a young age. :heart: She sounds adorable, although I guess it must be tiring to have such a high-energy dog. :D 

I wonder if I'll ever raise a puppy... Part of me would like to, the other part is too lazy and besides, I'd adopt an adult/older dog again in a heartbeat. It's harder for them to find homes, and they deserve them so much! But they do come with issues, like our Teddy. Everyone who knows him agrees that he's a really sweet and well-behaved dog, but they also all agree that he has slightly "special needs". :P
Poor guy, his eyesight is not good at all, neither is is hearing, plus he seems to live in hiw own dream world most of the time, anyway. And on top of that are all his fears and anxiety issues. But he knows we look out for him and trusts us to protect him, and that's really heartwarming, too. :aww:

Such a cutie <3 I'm sure that with some training he will relax bit by bit!

Yes, I suppose he will! Even though I don't expect him to ever play happily with other dogs, but hell - he doesn't have to!
He's like a fluffy ball made out of love and... insecurity. :heart:

Sehr schöne Zeichnungen! :thumbsup:

Mit ängstlichen Hunden hat man manchmal noch größere Schwierigkeiten als mit aggressiven. Man muss immer aufpassen, dass man die Angst nicht aus Versehen noch mehr bestätigt... Ich wünsche dir und Teddy jedenfalls viel Erfolg beim Training. :)
Unsere beiden Terrier hatten vor uns auch mehrere Besitzer, aber das kümmert sie jetzt nicht mehr, weil wir uns gut um sie kümmern und Hunde immer in der Gegenwart leben. :D

Danke! :D

Oh ja, ängstliche Hunde sind nicht ganz leicht. Bei unserem Sensibelchen muss man immer aufpassen, dass man nicht zu grob ist (und "zu grob" ist aus seiner Sicht fast jede Kleinigkeit :P ), und ja, wenn er Angst zeigt selbstbewusst zur Seite stehen und ihm durch die Situation helfen, ohne die Angst an sich zu belohnen. Ist schon eine Gratwanderung, und bestimmt machen wir auch manchmal Fehler... aber wir tun unser Bestes. :)
Teddy kümmert sich inzwischen vermutlich auch nicht mehr um seine früheren Besitzer, mit uns ist er jetzt schon glücklich, denke ich. :D  In dem einem Jahr seit wir ihn haben hat er schon riiiesige Fortschritte gemacht, und ich gehe davon aus dass er das auch weiterhin tun wird.

Yay für adoptierte Hunde, auf alle Fälle! ^^

Schön, dass Teddy so ein tolles Zuhause gefunden hat! :heart: Jeder kleine Fortschritt zählt. :) Unsere Hunde haben uns am Anfang auch mehr oder weniger große Schwierigkeiten gemacht, vor allem wegen Aggression und Gesundheitsproblemen, und jede kleine Verbesserung hat uns froh und stolz gemacht. :)

Einen älteren Hund aufzunehmen kann natürlich sehr anstrengend sein und ist nicht für jeden empfehlenswert, aber wenn mehr Leute mehr über Hunde wüssten, hätten viel mehr Tierheimhunde eine Chance.

He looks like he's asking you "did I do good?" in that last picture lol

It's usually more of a "Please save me"-look. ;)

I think he seems like a really good dog overall...just needs a self confidence boost...:)

SonPan Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2013  Professional
Definitely! A really BIG confidence boost! But yeah, he's getting better over time. When we adopted him, he walked all slumped down and was afraid of all loud noises. He's still not the most confident dog, obviously, but at least he doesn't live in a state of constant fear any more and gets to enjoy life, too. :D

Yay thank you, it was one of the best decisions of our life! We already know the next dog we get (because unfortunately, Teddy's already 8 years old so we know he won't last that long, probably) will be adopted, too. :)

Thank you, that's what I was going for! :D

Yes, he really is a very, very sweet dog. Highly insecure, dependent, and not the brightest (poor guy, but it's true), but VERY sweet! :heart:
