FRED – love me and I’ll love you back!!!!

Folks, you won’t be able to resist this adorable, bulldog/hound mix. Fred is a really handsome red and white boy, about four years old, and weighs around 70 lbs. Fred’s a love! He sure enjoys car rides, being with you and is a smart guy! He can entertain himself playing ball yet loves it when you throw the ball for him. He knows “stay, come and no.” And he’ll even shake hands with you. And our boy really enjoys the kiddie pool! Yep, he’s a beach bunny too! Fred is a healthy, muscular guy so he needs a strong human pack leader to love and care for him.

Fred is crate-trained and house-broken. He is healthy, in great shape, and his teeth are in excellent condition. He has his distemper and rabies shots. He’s also neutered and had extensive blood work done to ensure that he’s really healthy. No valley fever or tick fever. YAY! He had an old leg injury which has now been fully repaired and is completely healed with no future vetting required.

Our sweet guy adores his doggie sister in his foster home, but Fred will be perfectly content in an “only doggie” home environment. And no cats please. He’s such a big, strong guy that we feel an all adult home is best. He’d do well in a home with a secure back yard to roam and play in with his toys, no apartments. He loves human companionship, so it will be nice if someone is home quite a bit of the time.

Fred found himself at a local shelter due to being picked up as a stray and his family never came to claim him. Then Fred got lucky! He was such a good guy that a rescue group saved him and put him in a wonderful foster home with a great, fun lady. She says, “Fred is sooo…cute, cuddly, and sweet that she has nick-named him Teddy Bear”.

some of my superior qualifications:
• I sleep quietly thru the night on my doggie bed next to you.
• I enjoy brushings, ear & neck rubs, and body massages too.
• I am excellent in the car, will jump right in, will sit right down, and no car sickness for me. An occasional trip to the Golden Arches for a plain burger, I will totally enjoy!
• I know my commands: stay, come, no. I will sit for you and love to shake hands.
• I will love to play ball with you or independently, and won’t drive you crazy to play constantly.
• I am in great shape, am a healthy boy with clean white teeth.
• I will be a superior couch buddy and will enjoy watching T.V. with you.
• I have a sweet disposition and will brighten your day with my adorable, smiling face.
• I have great house manners but have occasional curiosity with the kitchen trash, so a locked can will be good.
• I am a fun boy with lots of personality with some goofiness. I will make you laugh and give you endless hours of entertainment.
• I need some work on the leash, so my new family needs a strong handler.
• I am a good listener and smart boy, just tell me what you want.
• I am good with baths and won’t fight you to get all freshened up.
• I will alert you to strangers approaching your home but not a barker by nature – a good watch dog.
• I am not a picky eater, and will enjoy a nice premium doggie food with a bit of canned food.
• I am low maintenance, and will be here for you when you need me.

About AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is committed to providing rescue and safe-haven for dogs in need. Most of the dogs we rescue are of mixed breeds. When we are out with our dogs and people ask, "What kind of dog is that?", my husband replies by saying, "It is a rare Prussian Snailhound. They are popular in Europe." Each Prussian Snailhound is unique and deserves a loving home! Please open your heart and your home to a rescue dog!

Our major focus is the rescue of stray dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation. Since July 2009 we have worked with other groups to rescue over 300 dogs and puppies. These are amazingly sweet dogs that have had to live off of the land and brave extreme heat, cold, rain, drought, coyotes, rattlesnakes, hunger, traffic and people who try to harm them. They deserve to have a proper home. This started out as a mission to save about 30 dogs who hung out behind the casino, as the casino managers saw them as a nuisance and were threatening to poison or shoot the dogs. We ended up saving way more dogs as we became aware that the problem extended far beyond the casino. Some of the adult dogs are extremely fearful of humans at first and require extensive rehabilitation in order to learn how to trust and become a member of the family. Once they realize how good home life is, they will be your best friend for life!

In addition to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation, it is our goal to work closely with the tribe to educate people who live on the Reservation about spay/neuter and to facilitate a low cost spay/neuter program.
