Fredrick has a sweet, bashful smile that sums up his entire being. He can act like a delicate wall flower when you first meet him, but once he is comfortable, he is all about being up in your personal space. He is a pro-level cuddler.
Fredrick is great on a leash. He has good manners and is very focused on his person. Which is fortunate, because taking walks is his favorite thing. He'd rather that then fetch or wrestle with other dogs. Speaking of, he can be picky about doggie company. He has lived happily with another dog, but any roommate needs to match his vibe or it's a hard pass. Most of us can probably relate. We'd be happy to introduce him to any dogs you have at home.
Fredrick would do best in a home with a yard, as he loves being outside. He'd like to split his time equally between the grass and your lap, if he could. We haven't observed him around kids or cats.
All you really need to fall in love with Fredrick is to look into his eyes. He just has the warmest, most soulful eyes. When he gives you a little hopeful tail wag, it'll be all over. If you're ready, come meet him!
