Humane Society of Central Illinois
Teddy Teddy


We found Teddy at the Humane Society in February of 2004. He is a Jack Russell mix (but looks just like a Jack). We would casually go and check out the dogs hoping to find the one just for us!

Teddy was so happy to play ball with us. I think we were there for about 3 hours playing with him and taking him for a walk. My boys just loved him. I fell in love with him as did my husband. Lucky for us, we had already been approved for adoption, so there was no chance of this beautiful boy getting away from us.

We took him home and after throwing out at least 150 names, Teddy was the name we chose for him. By the end of the night he already knew his new name!
