Freddie was adopted on April 9, 2017
My name is Freddie (#2797). I have finally learned my name and am so proud of it. I think it’s a really great name. Honestly, I think everything is great. I love life! I am so glad that Golden Bond has given me the opportunity to transform into the dog I’ve always wanted to be. The day I discovered that my new life came with my own dog bed was one of my happiest days ever!
My “high value reward” is string cheese. Boy, will I work for some of that yumminess! Also, I think it’s really cool how everyone I meet — no matter where I go — is there for the sole purpose of petting me. I’m so glad, too, that I am there for them. I sit and patiently hold their hand until they are ready to share the love they so desperately want to share. I don’t mind waiting; I know wherever they are they are there just for me.
The Lab in my foster home has attempted to get me to play again and again, but I’m not really interested. My foster family says it’s “beneath me” to engage in such activities. What’s not beneath me is enjoying my foster family’s yard. I am slowly getting more and more comfortable exploring and soaking up the sun without having my family there to keep me company. With time and trust, I am learning that my family won’t abandon me.
My fosters recently took me to the groomer for a full spa day. I did not want to leave that place! I soaked up every ounce of the attention I received. When it came time for my blow dry, my fosters took a video which they love to share. They call it “hysterical.” I enjoy trying new things and approach most everything without fear or anxiety. I coexist with my foster’s cat without any issues. I am great with children and will hold their hand everyday, all day, if they need me.
Here’s what my foster family says about me: “Freddie has been an incredible first foster for us. He came potty-trained and leash-trained. Freddie has an incredible story to tell on how he arrived in the USA and he sure is willing to tell it to anyone that will listen. (You’ll just have to tell him ‘Freddie, no bark!’ if you don’t want to hear it.) Freddie is a special dog that is so loving and trusting, even after spending the first six years of his life in a bad situation.”
