Meet Stefen! The scruffiest, formerly toothiest and now almost toothless terrier in town! He was being considered for euthanasia at a shelter due to being older and having a set of snaggly teeth to accompany his underbite but we knew that just made him cuter!
Now after a dental with 17 teeth removed, Stefen is feeling reborn and ready to enjoy the simple pleasures of life with you!
Stefen gets along wonderfully with other dogs and is a social butterfly when it comes to making new canine friends and seems to leave cats alone.
He's not the type to demand constant attention, but he does love snuggling up with you on the couch. Don't worry, he won't be a clingy couch potato – just a cuddly companion who values your company.
Crate time? No big deal! Stefen is crate trained and can comfortably spend some peaceful alone hours during the day. He might bark a bit when you leave or return home, just to express his excitement, but otherwise, he's a quiet and well-behaved gentleman.
When it comes to walks, he's more of a leisurely explorer. He likes to take his time, savor the scents, and leave his mark on the world (literally). If you prefer a brisk walking partner, he might not be the speediest, but he'll make sure you appreciate the beauty along the way!
Plush toys and Kongs filled with peanut butter? Count him in! They keep him entertained and content.
His energy level is easygoing, making him the ideal companion for road trips. He relishes the opportunity to accompany you on adventures and explore new horizons together.
One more thing about Stefen – he's not one for drama. If there's growling or trouble brewing, he's the first to walk away. He's a strong believer in peace and harmony, and he's all about living a drama-free life.
So, if you're in search of an all-around fantastic, low-maintenance, and drama-free buddy, look no further than Stefen. He's eager to be a part of your life's adventures. Let's create lasting memories together!
[Stefen evolved from S.T.F.N aka "Senior Terrier For Now" which was how his first vet appointment was made when he was rushed to our vet from the shelter. The name just stuck!]
Note about the breed: The indicated breed is our best estimate based on visual characteristics, but without a DNA test, we cannot guarantee its accuracy. However, mixed-breed dogs, lovingly known as mutts, encompass a wonderful variety of traits and are often some of the most cherished and lovable companions.
