Handsome Freddy is a big, beautiful cuddlebug. Calm and gentle, he simply LOVES people, and will quietly approach for pats and head scratches, laying his long nose on your lap or in your hands. He’s the ultimate working from home buddy and loves nothing more than to snooze at your feet (or on them). He also loves to lean on your legs while getting a pat. He is so affectionate, gentle and loving, we’ve often remarked that he should work in a hospital as a therapy dog. Just be careful leaving shoes unattended as Freddy loves to build his nest with items that smell like his people, but won't really chew them, just cuddle with them!

Freddy is a very smart boy! He learns routines quickly and is already working on some commands – “on your spot”, “down”, "leave it" and “waiting”. He waits patiently to put on his harness before walks, and will pause for you to take it off after walks if you say “waiting”. He’s still figuring out how to climb long staircases but he can easily be tempted with treats, praise and cuddles to give it his best!

On walks, Freddy walks close at heel and doesn’t pull on the lead. He’ll check in to make sure you’re close behind him and loves to walk right in between his two people, so he’s the centre of attention. His only walking quirk is that Fred can freeze at times on walks but keeping a few treats on hand will coax him back into walking and this should improve over time. Freddy has not met many dogs due to lockdown so he may require further socialisation after restrictions have eased.

Freddy hasn't been introduced to young children during his time in foster care so we think children over the age of 8 would be best!
