Teddy the Shelter Dog is a children’s book. A moving tale of a big black dog with one brown paw who is hurt in an accident and finds himself in the Animal Shelter. One day Teddy is adopted by a family, despite their fears that he might be too big and too wild to be a good pet. Teddy goes through a final adventure before he comes home for good to his Forever Home. Inspired by the true stories of adopted pets, this compelling adventure will enchant dog lovers of all ages.


Tony Feeherry is a Boston Lawyer, he co-authored Teddy the Shelter Dog with his late wife, Maridee. The inspiration for this story comes from the stories of shelter dogs like Teddy who have found a forever home.
