After a year of housing Eddie “The Terrible,” the Humane Society of Silicon Valley decided that there had to be a way to get this dog adopted by a family. Unfortunately, this small Chihuahua wasn’t the friendliest dog, and he had a bit of a behavior problem. These led to bigger problems for Eddie, such as the fact that no one wanted to adopt a dog with a behavior problem. Unfortunately for Eddie, no one wanted him. The people at the Humane Society were tired of people bypassing this quirky pup, so they made it their mission to find him a home by embracing all that’s wrong with this dog’s particular behavioral issues.
Creative personalities at the HS made the decision to create fun photos of Eddie, some with devil horns and others that looked like mock horror movie posters. People fell in love with Eddie the Terrible and he became a huge internet superstar. And that’s when his forever family came to get him. While it sounds like a happy ending, it gets even happier. The family that chose to adopt Eddie the Terrible decided to call him Teddy the Beloved. And it seems that with his new name came a new persona. Teddy is now an emotional support dog who loves to behave like a gentleman, and it’s worked out so well for this dog and his new family.
