Freddie is a 1 year old male Cross-Breed who’s currently fostered in Norfolk. As to what his breed mix he is then this might surprise you. He had a DNA test and it came back 12.5% White Swiss Shepherd, 12.5% Labrador, 12.5% Yorkshire Terrier and 62.5% breed groups – terrier, sporting and herding. So as you can see quite an interesting mix and we do love a good mongrel!
Freddie was found as a pup abandoned in Romania so not much is known about his early life. He’s currently fostered with a mixture of other dogs and a cat who he’s getting on very well with. He is very playful with the cat and did have to be managed in the beginning. The cat is confident, playful and not scared of dogs so they have become friends. If he was to be homed with a cat it would very much depend on the cat and also how things are managed.
Freddie is a very intelligent young boy with bags of potential. He’s eager to learn, playful and responds well to 121 training. He does have some underlying fears due to his start in life not knowing exactly where he came from and no doubt lacked crucial socialisation. He can be wary of strangers if they try and interact with him too soon.
He is more wary of men than women. He is responding really well to the 121 training his fosterer is giving him and it is important that this would be continued in his new home. With this training and confidence building I have no doubts he has a bright future ahead of him. Whoever adopts this boy will be extremely lucky, he truly is one of a kind and you can’t help but fall in love with him.
