Facts about Fredo

  • Breed: Chinese Crested
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Posted 8/06/17. PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION PRIOR TO CONTACTING US. Fredo came to The Nest just two days ago after he was seized from a back yard breeder/hoarder situation via a local humane society. He is between 2 years old and weighs 12 lbs. Typical for the breed, Fredo has a very sweet and friendly personality and he like to be with his human as much as possible. He gets along great with other dogs and he is fine with cats as well. Having lived in a hoarder type situation being used for breeding, he is not familiar with a "normal" dog life so he is a bit skittish when placed in a new environment. However, he learns very quickly and when with the right patient person who understands his need he adapts very quickly. Everything is new to Fredo and he can be a bit jumpy initially. He was kept in a cage all the time so when he is in a crate or in an enclosed space he spins and sometimes he does that for a short while outside the crate as well. It is typical behavior for dogs that were used for the sole purpose of making money. Fredo is making excellent progress on house training and if he is on a regular schedule there are no accidents. He has been neutered recently and we cannot guarantee that he is not going to mark initially when in a new place. For Fredo we are looking for a calm home with humans who will be patient with him and understand his needs. Fredo is very smart and very eager to please his human. He is very very sensitive and bonds strongly with his human. We would not want for him to go to a home where his humans would be gone all day as he would become very lonely and possibly depressed. We would like a fenced in yard for him as he has never been able to run free and he truly enjoys it. Another dog about his size would be fine as well, preferably a female. Fredo seems to be afraid of larger breed dogs so unless it is an older and very gentle dog we rather not place him in a home with large dogs. Small children make him nervous so we prefer a home with kids that are at least 12 years old. If you are interested in adopting gorgeous Fredo please fill out an adoption application on our web site. (An application has to be filled out prior to setting up a meeting.) Fredo is neutered, he is current on vaccinations including Rabies, he tested negative for heartworm, he had a dental, he had his dew claws removed, he is current on heartworm and flea prevention and he is micro chipped. His adoption fee is $300. We encourage interested folks to familiarize themselves with the breed prior to deciding to fill out an adoption application. Thank you.
