This months pooch pin up is all American mut, Theodore Roosevelt Smith or "Teddy" for short. Young Teddy was found wandering on a busy residential street and was saved by his new parents. He has beautifully tangled wirey hair (even when groomed!) and a gorgeous under-bite that showcases his pearly whites!
Thanks so much to parents, Jennifer & Craig, for the photos.

Shipping Policy
We absolutely do our best to get your order out for delivery as soon as possible, we know your pooch is waiting! In-stock items often ship within 2 business days, and our average delivery time to you is 5-7 business days after the item has left our boutique in Tampa, Fl via UPS Ground.
