Our skittish pup, Theo, is finding his way
Demetrius and I adopted Theodore (Theo) from the Collinsville shelter on Father’s Day this year. Hence his name, Theo – Demetrius’ middle name is Theodore, named after his father, Theodore. So, that makes our 4-legged family addition the third generation Theo.
The shelter didn’t know much about his background, but we assume he was abused. He shivered for weeks and would hide when friends came over.
He’s a blue heeler mix, which are generally friendly and smart dogs – so we’re just loving him until he understands that he’s safe here.
We started taking him to the Bark Park, and while he doesn’t play much with the other pups, he allows the people to pet him. We also discovered that he knows how to fetch and can run pretty darn fast.
Theo loves riding in the car, so I take him with me when I’m running errands or off to the grocery store. He is getting much more comfortable with our active lifestyle and loves hanging out with Mom & Dad.
It’s hard to imagine not having a pup in our home. If you’re considering adopting a pet, visit the Humane Society of Tulsa’s web site.
Funny thing about dogs – they love unconditionally. I have a pillow that is embroidered, “When I grow up, I want to be the person my dog believes I am.”
