Teddy was cruelly dumped in the pouring rain along with thunder & lightening.  Such a cruel act as we’re not sure if Teddy always had trauma with this or, he gained this trauma from that one act.

We honestly didn’t think he was going to make it especially since he was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure however, through it all, his appetite was always strong & so he came home with BRDS’ Founder – Alison & has since been in hospice care with her.

Nobody expected him to live out another week however , it seems Teddy has other plans & is determined to hang around for as long as he can so he can continue feeling the love & care he deserves.

Teddy’s responding well to all the holistic treatments to maintain his kidneys & prolong his life.

The tenacity & resilience of this little dog is amazing. He requires clinic visits when he drops but every time he comes back, he seems stronger, better even if his tests come back saying the opposite.

Teddy requires a truck load of supplements, holistic treatments etc to keep him going strong.

To date, he’s now been with Alison coming on 7 months.
