Hey there! I’m Freddy! My foster family calls me all sorts of names. Freddy-Poo, Bubs, Mister, and of course the gentlemanly names, Fred and Fredrick. I came in with the Halloween crew from Georgia and let me tell you, this cold weather is something. Like a true Minnesotan, I say it wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for that wind!
I love life and enjoy any place with people for attention. They say I’m pretty young, and you know what comes with young dogs…. fun! Yes, that’s right, fun! Okay, okay, so maybe it’s destroying toys and zoomies all over the house, but I call it fun! Foster mom and dad say that I’m destroying all the right things (toys and bones, please!), so it’s a win. And maybe that’s why I don’t mind the snow and cold up in this neck of the woods. I love to do zoomies outside when I first get up in the morning too! What a great way to start the day, with a nice crisp zoomie run! Do you zoomie run? What about regular human run? I would love to be a running partner, even if it doesn’t include zoomies every time! I may need to build up my endurance, but I’m ready to be the perfect adventure partner! P.S. I have realized that I am MORE than okay with staying in the house when it’s below zero, or when there’s three feet of snow to do my business in. Still, when life gives you snow, romp in it!
I don’t mind my crate, but I would prefer not to be in it, obviously (talk to any dog near you and they’ll agree 😊). I’ll go in for a few treats and I’ll even stay quiet though! I typically eat my breakfast and supper in my crate, so when I hear the food bowls being filled, I jump right in my crate and wait for the good stuff! I don’t have accidents in my crate or around the house. I try to be a great houseguest. I’m a bigger fella and sometimes I don’t realize my size, so they say. Don’t tell anyone, but I got myself into a pickle earlier this month and got stuck behind the couch. I swear the space got smaller as I was sniffing!
I am a super-fast learner and foster mom and dad realized early that I will need to be busy with mind and body for my busy brain! Foster mom and dad are finding ways to keep my mind busy while crated, so I don’t knock people over with my excitement when I get out (read: zoomies and Tigger jumps). So far, I’m doing great! I love people so much that I will do whatever they want me to do, so I can get love, pets and I’ll even try to sneak in a few kisses. Totally worth it!
My “bag o’ tricks” includes leave it, come, sit, lay down, off, stay (well, we’re working on that!). I’m also working on “bed” which is for my bed in foster mom and dad’s room. I usually go there anyway, so they’re teaching me the word for it. Humans are so silly sometimes, why do they need words for everything??
I’ve settled down a lot since I got here from the shelter down in Georgia, so after some initial decompression, foster mom says I’m a wild low-medium energy dog. Bouncy and excitable, for about 5 minutes, then I can go either way. I’ll leave that bit up to you!
My foster family has other dogs, kids and even cats. I like to bark at my canine foster siblings from inside my crate, so my foster parents were a little weary on how much I liked other dogs. It turns out, I LOVE other dogs! I just don’t love having to hang in my crate alone because what’s the fun in that?!?! The jury is still out on how I really feel about cats. I can’t decide if those furballs can be trusted ;). Kids, well, they’re easy. They want give and receive love just like me! I think they’re great!
I’m loving this family life and I can’t wait to meet my forever family. Until then, you can find me wrestling with my foster siblings and learning to be the best boy I can! I’d love to meet you soon!
