Theodore was adopted from the Animal Care Society in Louisville, KY on September 2, 2012. He was 4 months old at the time of adoption.
Theo was born in a litter of 6 male puppies… all looking surprisingly different. His father is a suspected Yorkie but the previous owners weren’t positive. His mom is a 25 lb. Yorkie mix. Theo’s mom’s owners didn’t want to keep the puppies and they were split up between two different shelters in Louisville. All the puppies were adopted fairly quickly.
As a tiny guy, Theo and his brothers were left outside in a crate with little human interaction or attention. We’re also not sure how young they were taken from their mother. We don’t suspect actual physical abuse but Theo has a fairly severe separation anxiety problem. While his separation anxiety makes him an extremely lovable and warm dude, he panics when left alone. We’re currently working on the issue with a behavioral specialist. That being said, he’s the best pup a girl could ask for.
