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 for the better. A kind human took him home and nurtured him back to health and showed him what “real” love was all about. He grew healthy and he was happy for the first time in his life. This kind human wanted to adopt him but the dominant dog in that home is also a male and does not like Freckles so now Freckles is looking for his own home.
Freckles has been waiting for his own home a long time. To take the stress off him in his foster home with a dog that hates him, we have moved him to live with his trainer where he lives in boarding. He does well with other dogs there that like him and he likes them. We don’t know why no one wants him. He is gorgeous and sweet and makes a loving companion. He does well with other dogs there that like him and he likes them.
Freckles has been professionally obedience trained and is ready for his own forever home. 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?
