Meet Tessu, April's Pet of the Month
Tessu was born on July 14, 2011 in southwestern Finland at the Green Hill Kennel. He lives with the Tapani Kaskeala family in Helsinki, Finland. He comes from fine breeding, but his family was told that he would not qualify for shows since his tail is crooked, which you cannot tell unless you feel it with your hand. Anway, he was immediately adopted since the family had no intention to raise him for showing.
Being a retriever, Tessu loves the water as well as the snow.
At Ambrosia he loved to sit and watch people and dogs walk by from the porch at the Captain's Suite. Wouldn't we all love to do the same!
The Kaskeala family mentioned that Ambrosia is a very good place to stay for a family with a dog.
Thank you, Tessu, for being Ambrosia's pet of the month for April.
A donation will be made in Tessu's name to the Florida Keys SPCA.
