freddy - 5

Freddy is a sweet, loveable whippet who thrives on being a true part of the family. He adores his pats and cuddles and to feel like he is a centre of your world. Fred loves to camp up next to you on the couch to take in the latest TV shows or sleep close by overnight.


Fred is lots of fun too – he loves to show off his lithe body with ground covering zoomies and then to come back when you call him. After a run he is happy to chill out for a while or play a bit of fetch with his favourite soft toy. Freddy loves to go for drives in the car and out for walks. He still needs some work on his onlead walking as he needs to build confidence after recent bad experiences; sometimes he will pull on the lead a bit. He is easy to take out and about but is unsure.


Freddy came into care as he had been savagely attacked by roaming dogs and suffered life-threatening injuries. With the help of West Queanbeyan Vet, he has healed well in ARF and apart from some scarring, and being unsure of other dogs (especially off-lead ones) until he gets to know them, you would never know the ordeal he has been through.


Freddy LOVES his foster pooch buddies and uses them for confidence and cuddles. A confident canine companion is a MUST for Freddy in his new home.


Freddy has fitted in perfectly into his foster home and is so easy and pleasurable to have as part of the foster family.


Fred looks forward to sharing his love with a new family. One thing for sure, you would never feel lonely with a pal like Fred.
