Energy: High- I’m a puppy after all!
Hey there! I’m Freddy, a big-hearted pup looking for my forever home.
I’m kicking it with 2 adults, 4 awesome kids ranging from 8 to 13, a fellow canine pal, 5 cool cats, and even 2 pigeons. It’s a bustling place! I’m a laid-back, medium-high energy dude. A short walk knocks me out for now, but as I grow, I’ll need more action.
I’m a charmer with strangers and guests. New situations? Bring it on! I’ve even aced a visit to ‘Homes Alive.’ Kids are my jam. I get along great with them. Other dogs? I’m cool as a cucumber. Cats are getting used to me, and I’m learning the dos and don’ts. Birds? I barely notice them. Cars and I aren’t the best of friends. Motion tends to get the best of me.
Treats and trying new stuff jazz me up. I’m cool with the crate, though I’m not thrilled to go in. I’m a pro on the leash. I am still working on house training. I’m learning basic training and it’s really important that my new family keeps up with my training- I’m going to be a big boy and I want my manners to be on point.
If you are looking for a soon to be big boy, who is a cuddle enthusiast, I would love to meet you. Simply click the “Adopt me” button below, and let’s get to know each other. I can’t wait to meet you!”
– Love, Freddy
Freddy came to hart from our community of focus with his mom and littermates. Freddy was a healthy little pup when he came into care. Due to the mouthing of his siblings, Freddy ended up with an aural hematoma (a blood-filled pocket on the inside of the ear flap) that was drained when he was in for his neuter. This is fairly common amongst litters of puppies, but we took the opportunity to split the litter so that no further issues would result. Unfortunately, Freddy needed to have his aural hematoma drained a couple of different times. It seems as though Freddy has sensitive ears and while Freddy’s aural hematoma was treated, he has some permanent scar tissue, resulting in a thicker ‘cauliflower ear’. But it only adds to his cute-factor. Freddy’s adoptive parents should pay attention to Freddy’s ears and apply preventative measures such as good overall health, hygiene and awareness. Since being in hart’s care Freddy received DACPP, Bordatella and is neutered and microchipped. Should an adoption be finalized before the Rabies vaccine is administered (this vaccination can be administered at 4-6 months of age) that vaccination will become the responsibility of the adoptive parent.
Freddy is a typical puppy with no behaviour concerns. He does get a bit of car sickness.
