The cuddly 6-year-old basset hound-lab mix spent the last three weeks in Surfside as a proud member of the non-profit Crisis Response Canines.
As part of that team, Teddy provided “psychological first aid,” primarily to first responders.
Now, Teddy is in need of some help himself after his Surfside stint, suddenly unable to move. He is stuck in his grandmother’s house in Hollywood. Far from his home and his cat siblings in Philadelphia.READ MORE: Royal Caribbean Expands COVID Testing Requirements
After watching our story on Teddy, people have been calling and offering to find a private plane that would take him back home.
Finally, the owner and CEO of Titan Aviation Group offered his help, and Teddy will be getting a ride back, all expenses paid.
Of course, once back home, his vet bills will be adding up.MORE NEWS: Hundreds Attend 'Down With The Chains' Rally At Bayfront Park For Freedom For Cuba, Venezuela & Nicaragua
