Freya is an 8 year old female Cross-Breed currently in foster in Moray, Scotland. Fabulous Freya has settled in beautifully with her foster Mum in the UK, this is what she has to say about her! Freya believes wholeheartedly in taking life easy, in fact as easy as possible and who can blame her after her previous life where she ended up a victim of the dog catchers pole… With sheer luck, she managed to escape from the dog catcher but the noose from the pole was left around her hip area and started to embed itself, this is how poor Freya was found by her rescuer. This was a nasty injury which is still healing but it is improving slowly and any future adopter would need to be prepared to continue Freya’s treatment and nursing, but this isn’t onerous and Freya is cooperative. Unfortunately, Freya’s podge is not helping her ‘ dog catcher’s wound’ heal as quickly as it might if she were a few pounds lighter!
Endearing as her large waistline is, it isn’t in her best interests and her foster Mum is doing her best to try to slim her down and anyone following Freya’s Fat Club will see she is making steady progress. Foster Mum says that Freya’s chunky shape reminds her of a walrus, which earns her a dirty look from Freya herself, understandably! Freya also has an egg shaped lump which is not uncommon in an older overweight dog, it’s not troubling her at the moment and further details will be made available to Freya’s new adopters. At the moment, Freya has a waxy build up appearing around her udders, her foster Mum is keeping the area clean and applying a medicated barrier cream to try to clear this up. It is hoped by the time she’s adopted that it will no longer be an issue, however, Freya doesn’t mind having this area tended to and the procedure is very simple.
Apart from the above mentioned issues, Freya’s health appears to be good and she’s grateful for any attention and kindness she receives. Above all, Freya just wants to be with her foster family. She adores being included even if she’s just sitting in the kitchen watching what’s going on, however she can be a tad noisy if she feels her foster Mum is taking too long preparing her calorie controlled dinner and if she wants a fuss, she’ll soon let you know if you are taking too long for her taste. Speaking of taste, it would appear exercise is most definitely not to our Freya’s liking as it can take a bit of persuasion to convince her to bestir herself and go for a walk or a play in the garden, so Freya’s ideal forever family would be one that could not only encourage Freya to get moving on a regular basis, but also be able to resist the lure of her soulful eyes where treats are concerned.
Apart from that, this dear lady is tranquility itself, happy to put her horrendous past behind her and look forward to her bright future. Freya has so much love to give and she gives it willingly, she loves nothing more than cuddles and comfort and being made to feel safe. She’s so grateful for all the goodness she’s received from her foster Mum but would really love a forever family of her very own that would be willing to help her lose weight and exercise and above all, give her the love and attention she craves. Freya is a very brave dog who has been through so much, she deserves her happy ending and family to call her own. She might need a little extra care but the rewards of having such an affectionate and appreciative dog would outweigh that many times over.
