Freddi is a female, 2(ish) year old Yellow Lab mix who has had a rough life up till a few weeks ago. Freddi used to belong to people who left her out in the backyard all by herself 90% of the time and when her people were around her they hit her repeatedly. A wonderful next door neighbor to Freddi noticed what was going on, convinced the people to give Freddi to him and then turned her over to Fuzzy Pawz Rescue so we could find her the loving home she deserves.
Miss Freddi is a very sweet and gentle natured dog; she likes meeting new people and in her visits to the dog park she will go up to people when they arrived and sit for them so they can pet her. Due to her past history Freddi is submissive to humans and will show that by trying to lick your face or hand. Freddi can be a little timid around loud noises (she cowers then gets over it) and is not really a fan of lying on the couch with her foster dad when he’s watching TV; she will instead just take a nap somewhere near (we think she doesn’t like the TV). When all is quiet Freddi does like to get up on the couch or bed with you but will stay off if she is told to.
She has very nice house manners and is house trained; she will come up to your to let you know when she needs to go out. She is way past the chewing stage, but does enjoy a chew treat if given one and like most Labs takes treats very gently. Freddi is a very quiet dog; her foster dad has only heard her bark when at the dog park as a reaction to other dogs.
This girl gets along fine with other dogs but doesn't really know how to play
with them. Sometimes she will give a low growl when they first come up
to her and may put up her hackles but not to be aggressive, more of a defensive reaction. Once she knows no one is going to hurt her she is fine and gets along good with the other dog in her foster home and does well at the dog park.
Freddi is not crate trained but she is fine in the house alone for hours a time with no issues. Having said that, she does sleep in a door-less crate at night of her own choosing. She will not currently use a dog door but over time we think she will get used to the idea. She is good on a leash and when off leash at the dog park she stays close and comes when; we think she would be a good hiking partner. She has massive paddle feet so we are guessing she will be a great water dog.
We have not had the opportunity to have Freddi around children but due to her past abuse history we recommend no children under 12 years of age. Freddi will do best in a household that will keep her socialized with people and other dogs and show her a gentle hand and an understanding when she gets a little scared. Freddi would be good with a senior couple that walks every day as well.
The rescue has had Freddi spayed and vaccinated
