Fred (Safe Rescue, fostered Great Yarmouth)

Meet Fred, a 9 year old medium-sized crossbreed boy who is finally beginning to realise that life can be good and that people are his friends! Sadly, this has been a long time coming after spending many years in a Romanian public shelter. The fact he survived is amazing in itself. This wonderful boy is now free and about to embark on a life as a normal, much loved dog with the help of his new family. Fred is being cared for in a foster home provided by Safe Rescue and his foster mum has worked wonders with this lovely boy.

Fred has been in his foster home for several months now, getting used to being with humans who want to love him, not hurt him. When he arrived, the poor boy suffered from frequent nightmares and woke up reacting to anything close by. He obviously saw many horrible things in his past and he had to fight to survive. Recently, however, he sees to have put this all behind him and the bad dreams have diminished. He is now ready to find a forever home and family.

Fred is a beautiful, slightly quirky boy who smiles and relaxes in his foster home. He loves walks, but is still a little anxious at having the lead on and having it taken off. He should get over this in time. He is funny and playful. He enjoys being with people and does the most adorable happy dance when his foster mum comes home. He will nuzzle her fingers and play with her hands, but is still wary about being stroked. It is a bewildering thing to him and he is not sure why it’s happening. In time, he should get used to it.

Poor Fred has a lot of wasted years to make up for. He is in good health and condition for his ages, especially considering the hardships he experienced. Now he needs to be thoroughly loved, cherished and pampered at last. He will return your love tenfold.
