Description: Fred is black and white. He's tall and lean, and at a very good weight. Fred is an amputee, and is missing his back left leg.
Personality: Fred is always happy. He's very active and enjoys playing. He's also smart and eager to please. Fred is trusting and transitioned to his new foster home very quickly.
He loves to play with his foster brothers, but will play alone if no one wants to play with him. He enjoys chewing his toys. What Fred loves best, though, is to sit in your lap and nap.
Animal History: Fred was taken to the vet when he was found at 4 months old with an injured leg. His leg could not be saved, and after removal of it, he went home with one of the vet techs who had been caring for him. She realized Fred is a very special dog. She reached out to IAR for help in finding him his forever home. He is now happily living in a foster home with three other dogs ranging in weight from 15 to 85 pounds.
