NORSLED

Teddy S. Bear is about 6-8 years old and approximately 60 pounds, but in pretty good shape. He loves people, but is particular about which dogs he hangs with, and of course, no cats. He would love to spend his days curled up next to his owner and watch a movie or go on a nice stroll. He would be an excellent companion for a retired person or someone who is home a lot. For more information, call NorSled at 800-471-5822, or email rescue@norsled.org.
