From the Foster: I've had Freddy for a while now, and he is such a gem, I can't believe he hasn't been scooped up yet by some lucky family!
He has a wonderful temperament! He loves other dogs and is great with kids. He might be a little too interested in the kitties, though, so no feline siblings for Freddy!
He loves his people so much and prefers to be near you! If you're busy doing something or watching TV he will happily snuggle up at your feet, but he also has a playful side. I would say he has a medium energy level - the perfect balance of lazy and playful to fit in to most families.
He does have some separation anxiety that shows only in the form of drooling in his crate when he is alone. So a home with another dog companion will be best for Freddy. Someone who is home more often than not would be the most ideal setting for him - a full 8 hour day alone might be too much for him, even with a dog friend! He loves to give kisses and is a very happy boy. He will make a fabulous dog for some lucky family.

Note - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal. We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.
