Teddy pet of the week

Teddy is a very playful 2-year-old boy. Anytime his human is standing, he assumes they will be playing, and of course, he’s spoiled — so they do.

He loves tunnels, teaser wands, and tasers. He’s full-grown but only 10 lbs and still looks like a kitten. He’s a sweet cuddly boy and his human is so grateful for him.

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
