Hi, my name is Fred. A couple of years ago I was running loose in Eagle Rock without a microchip or any idea of where I lived. Hey, I was young and hadn’t been “fixed” yet. Someone found me and took me into their house “temporarily” until they could find my original family, but after all this time, they’re now looking for a permanent home for me. They were nice enough to take me to the vet, get me neutered (I guess that was nice of them), get all my shots and have me live with them and their young son. They even sent me to doggy training to get me used to hanging out with other dogs and to make sure I was house trained and well-behaved. I’m so lovable that I’ve stayed with that same family for almost 2 years!! Unfortunately, they’ve decided to have another baby and between that and their full-time jobs they don’t have as much time to spend with me as we’d both like. I could sure use a home with a yard and some humans who can give me belly rubs and take me for walks. I can be a little nervous around other dogs when I’m on the leash, but other than that I’m adorable, loyal, well-behaved and kind. Let’s get together, and you’ll see what a great doggy I am.
