Freckles is adorable. He is a sweet, loving boy. All he wants to do is please his person, go to walks with him, play ball with him, snuggle on the couch and watch TV with him. He is a true loyal boy. He is gentle and peaceful with children but playfullness could knock a small child over. Because he might knock over a child, we prefer children to be 8 yrs old or older.

Freckles is great with cats as well as dogs. Although Freckles gets along well with most other he prefers a female dog. For that reason, if he is wanted as a companion dog he will be adopted to the opposite sex only. He is also good as an only dog lavishing in his person’s love.
Freckles is professionally obedience trained and is one of the best behaved dogs we’ve ever had. Freckles does well on walks. He ignores other dogs and politely meets other well mannered dogs on the street. He is well mannered and loving and a joy to be around. He is so well behaved that when he’s told to go to his house (crate) to goes there and stays all day, even with the crate open, until his person comes home. Will you be the lucky human to receive Freckles’ love and loyalty?
Freckles will be adopted to an inside forever home only. Must own home – no apartments please. 5 to 6 foot fence required. Our application process requires references, vet checks and home visit. Freckles’ adoption donation of $200 will be used to help other abused and neglected dogs.

FRECKLES STORY AS BEST WE KNOW IT: From the day he was born Freckles was set up to fail. Somehow though, through his good will and forgiving nature, he triumphed in the end. Born into a backyard breeding system he was sold too soon to be properly socialized to dogs and humans he could trust. All too early, likely at 4 weeks rather than the normal six to eight weeks of age, he was ripped away from mom and siblings and from the only warmth and love he would likely ever receive over his life time. Typical of the bully breed, he craved human attention but rarely received it. His only toy was his food bowl as evidenced by the joy and abandon with which he entertains himself with it. He grew up neglected and practically alone. He had no idea how to live in a home with a real family and what real love felt like. However, true to his breed, his love for humans remained great even though he was betrayed by them all over and over again.
When he was about a year old he found himself alone, starving and wandering aimlessly looking for someone who would feed him and love him and someone he could love in return. Was he dumped? Did he escape? We will never know. He was dangerously thin and afraid when his luck changed and he was rescued by a kind human. He grew healthy and he was happy for the first time in his life. But it was not to last. In that same home lived a dog that could not tolerate Freckles and Freckles once again had to find another safe haven.
It took two years for Silver Rescue to have room for him. During this waiting period he lived in boarding with a dog trainer. While there he learned his doggie manners, was socialized to dogs and learned he did not have to be afraid of them. And he learned that most humans can, indeed, be nice too.
He is now living at Silver Rescue where we have learned that he is also great with cats. He is a marvelous dog. Won’t you consider giving this sweet boy his forever home?
