Welcome Tetley to Humphrey House

Tetley is a senior male Pom-Chi who weighs around 14 pounds. He was surrendered after his owner could no longer care for him. One vet record shows he will be 9 in a couple weeks. The other shows he turned 10 a couple weeks ago. 🤷 I guess he's somewhere in between.

Tetley can be a little nervous at times. Right now his world has been turned upside down. He was with his owner since he was a 1 year old puppy. A friend was watching him after his owner had to move in with family but the friend recently broke her ankle, so she was unable to care for him either. That's when the owner made the difficult decision to surrender him to our rescue.

Tetley has a history of doing well with other dogs, cats, and older children - although he tends to playfully chase cats. He was housetrained at one point, but the friend that was watching him for the last 6 months preferred to use potty pads instead of taking him outside. With a steady routine, I'm sure he can get back into the swing of going outside. I am told that he does have some food aggression. I have not witnessed it yet, but it may come as he gets more comfortable in a home. Apparently once he is given food, it is his. Do not try to take HIS food away.

Tetley is neutered, chipped and current on vaccines, but is due for booster shots in a few weeks. If not adopted within a few weeks, we will update his vaccines. He recently had a full senior blood panel done and everything looks good.

Tetley is being fostered in Harford County, Maryland.
