This week's adoptable pet (he'll be featured on SFist all week long on the right side of the site, below the ads) comes to us from Grateful Dogs Rescue (check out their fancy new site). Our favorite thing about Teddy is his tail -- look at that curl!

Teddy is a nine-year-old neutered male Lhasa Apso or Shih Tzu. He was surrendered to the shelter in terrible condition, with badly matted hair that had to be shaved. Despite years of neglect, he is a friendly little guy who likes being petted and enjoys exploring the neighborhood on his walks. He gets along with other dogs and appears to be housebroken. No children, please.
