  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Say HELLO to Fred!!! Fred is a super senior looking for love... Do you have that fur-ever home for him to grow old in?? Fred has had a rough few months. He was dumped at a mall parking lot, ended up with pneumonia and a gastric bleed, then luckily the shelter contacted us about him needing help and we rushed out to get him. Now he is all recovered and needs a retirement home to call his own. The vet estimate his age around 10-12 years old, he is around 18lbs, and is very hard of hearing. Fred LOVES to eat and will follow his noise anywhere there is food. He is a sweet boy who loves to give you a couple of kisses and maybe a snuggle.

About Lazy Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lazy Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill dog rescue organization specializing in the Low Rider Breeds: Bassets, Corgis, and Dachshunds. We rescue dogs from shelters at risk of being euthanized as well as abandoned, abused, and stray dogs. We also rescue many dogs from owners who are forced to surrender their dogs due to financial or personal issues. Our primary goal is to rescue and rehabilitate these dogs in loving foster homes until they are adopted into their permanent homes.

Lazy Dog Dog Rescue is a 100% non-profit volunteer organization that would not survive without the loving dedication and support of volunteers, foster families, and benefactors. Our sincerest thank you to each of our generous and dedicated supporters.

Our Adoption Process...

Our Adoption Process...
Step 1
Fill application at our website

Step 2
Submit your adoption application to us. It may take a few days before your application is processed and you receive a response back.

Step 3
If your application is approved, we will call you to schedule a "Meet & Greet".

If we have an upcoming adoption event.

We will set a time for you to come meet the dog that day, usually on Saturdays. Please make sure you take any family members and other dogs to see how the initial introduction goes.

If we DON’T have an upcoming adoption event.

And you have other dogs:
We will schedule to meet you, any family members, and other dogs at the foster's home first; this makes the entry into the new home easier for the dog and for your family.

And you don’t have any other dogs:
We will schedule to meet you and any family members at the foster's home.

Step 4
Meet your prospective new pet. Spend time with them and see how it goes.

Step 5
If your "Meet & Greet" goes well and you wish to adopt; you will complete an adoption contract at the appointment. We ask for a suggested adoption donation to help us cover spay/neutering, shots, medical treatment, food, supplies and temporary care. These suggested donation amounts only partially cover the cost of expenses involved. Your donation is tax deductible. It’s that easy!

Step 6
Take your new best friend home! Congratulations – you have saved a special life.

What if the adoption doesn't work out?
You can return any of our dogs as we don't want to see them turned into a shelter. The application process helps prevent such an issue, so it's very important that you are honest when answering the questions.

Not all dogs are compatible in all situations, so it is imperative that you are forthright in the application process to find the right match. However, be sure you are ready to make a full commitment to adopting a dog, whether a puppy or an adult.

It can take up to a few weeks for a dog to really adjust to his/her new environment. A lot really depends on the dog's past so the prospect of adopting should be well-thought-out & the commitment should be taken seriously.
