Teeva is a seven-year-old female American Staffordshire terrier cross who ended up at the BC SPCA North Cariboo Branch February 22, 2012 as the result of a cruelty investigation.
At the time, Teeva was chained in the back yard, left in poor conditions with her health deteriorating. She was transferred to the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch on April 26, 2012 through the Drive for Lives program where she was nursed back to health and spent six weeks hoping for adoption.
As no one in the Vancouver area was showing interest in adopting her, the Drive for Lives team jumped back into action and transfered this beauty to the BC SPCA Nanaimo Branch on June 8, 2012, where she now waits for her forever home.
While Teeva can be shy and hesitant of men, she warms up after the second or third visit. She loves other dogs and is fully house trained and easy to walk. She is on a hypoallergenic diet and will need to remain on this special diet for the rest of her life.
Teeva wants nothing more than to have a place to call home, somewhere safe, secure & warm. She is in need of guardians who will see her for more than her breed; understanding that like every dog, she has a few behaviors to work on.
Check out videos of Teeva below. There are four videos in all, showing off her true beauty and exuberant personality.
