Hi, my name is Fred and I am very sweet and friendly and good with both dogs and people. I do like to chase birds and rabbits, as a result a home with cats may not be a good fit for me as my prey drive seems quite strong. I am good with children but will need some training because I am very exuberant and could knock them down. I am a very social/gregarious boy and I've yet to meet someone I don't like. Also, so far I show no aggression toward other dogs of various breeds.
I would be good with kids over 9, however I would not recommend that anyone other than a teenager/adult walk me as I am very strong. I pull a bit on the leash at first, then I settle down and will walk quite nicely. I would be good as a companion animal with children younger than 9 within some reasonable guidelines (I will try to steal their food if they have any and no way they should try to walk me). I really like toys and will play and amuse myself for quite a while. I have a very fair amount of energy but I am pretty low-maintenance when I get restless, you can even let me out in the yard and I'll run wind sprints to work it out. During the day, I pretty much sleep on the couch most of the day.
Getting fed 3-4 times a day seems to agree with me too. Whoever give me a home should probably continue to do multiple feedings during the course of a day though. I wolf down food in fairly record speed (2 cups of kibble in less than a minute but I am not food aggressive.
I am a very fast learner and will make someone a wonderful pet! Fill out the adoption form below and adopt me today as I am looking for my fur-ever home!
