A 9-month-old Papillon, who was born without eyes, has a zest for life. But for the second time in his short life he was at risk of euthanasia. When Teddy was just 3 months old, Wanda Jackson, a volunteer at the Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego (CRSD), saved him from a local animal shelter and adopted him out. But things didn't work out and Teddy was returned to the rescue where he was at risk of being euthanized again.
"It looked like we weren't going to have a chance to get him into a forever home," Wanda told ABC 10 News. She took Teddy home to give herself time to try and find him a new forever home. "He has a passion for life," said Wanda. "He loves it. He's healthy otherwise and it's like, why in the world do you not see how precious he is?"
She began to network online and spread Teddy's story and soon after she heard from a woman in Ontario, Canada who already has adopted two blind dogs. Wanda was thrilled but wondered how she was going to get Teddy to Canada. Then something amazing happened. She heard from a United Airlines employee who lives in Chicago. She volunteered to fly to San Diego and deliver Teddy to his new home in Ontario. Teddy is now getting ready to travel to his new home and Wanda is very happy to have found the puppy a new home. "He's a precious soul," she said. "He's life. He's lovable."
