Meet stunning Freddie the Podenco, who is in a refuge in Spain until he has a home to go to. He is one year old and is a small medium size boy. Freddie is estimated to be one year old. He has a beautiful white coat, pink nose, and typical large Podenco ears and beautiful amber coloured eyes. He has already put on some weight and now weighs 12kg which is about right. When he came in he was only 10.5kg.
Freddie is sociable and loves the volunteers who come into the refuge. He gets on with the other dogs in the shelter too. We are looking for a dog savvy home for Freddie, someone with sighthound experience is preferred, but it is not set in stone. We can only test him with older children, so would not rehome him with anyone under age 11.
Freddie was probably dumped because he wasn’t a good hunter, but we will never know for sure. He was found abandoned in a town in southern Spain. Luckily, he was quickly rescued by the husband of one of our rescuers. This poor lad was found in a sorry state, and was skin and bone.
Freddie is now neutered, vaccinated, blood-tested and microchipped. Homecheck and adoption fees apply.
