And along came Teddy."The TV star went on to explain why Teddy had been rescued, she wrote: "I have no idea why or how anyone could not want him or he wouldn't be 'good' enough."But apparently he is no where near the size he should be for his breed and that was one of the main reasons why he wasn't kept by the breeder."Stacey visited the pup on Sunday evening with her four children and fiancé Joe Swash before she later welcomed him home the next day.
