Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

Fred's a guy who likes to take it slow. It takes time for him to form relationships with people and to give his trust. He used to struggle with meeting and bonding with people but has made remarkable progress since coming to the Sanctuary. Once you've earned Fred's trust, the rewards are great. Deep down, he's a very gentle, loving and affectionate dog. He's also extremely smart and responds well to training that requires him to think. Fred was born in 2011 and came from a rescue in Arizona that was closing. He was diagnosed with a spinal condition and takes some medication to help him feel comfortable. Because he's still a bit insecure and anxious, he'll need to find a home with someone who can continue to help him build his confidence, keep up his training and guide him through successful introductions with both people and other dogs. But Fred promises he's worth it.

Fred has a generous sponsor who has offered to pay for his adoption fee.
