Be on the lookout for the social media duo @aguyandagolden, Johnathan Lower and his Golden Retriever Teddy. They are the 2023 co-chairs of Pick Me! SC and the fans on Tik Tok, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube couldn’t be more excited.

“We are so glad to be a part of this year’s statewide adoption event June 14 – 23,” said Lower. “If we can inspire just one family to go to their hometown shelter and adopt – it will make everything worth it.”

Look for Teddy on TV spots that will air across the Palmetto State and on the cover of Carolina Tails Magazine, the largest pet magazine in the Carolinas.

Teddy has more than 1 million followers on social media and videos showing him in his custom-built doghouse with a TV and couch have amassed more than 1 billion views! Johnathan and his team were recently featured in People Magazine after they launched “Shelter Dog Saturdays” to spotlight dogs less fortunate than Teddy and help them find homes.
