Update: Fred was adopted on December 13th!
Fred is confused and distraught over losing his home when his previous owners divorced.
But he is a sweet, gentle boy and we are doing all we can to ease his despair and give him hope.
Fred is a senior, about 9 or 10 years of age, a medium-size Shepherd mix, neutered male, debuting for adoption today.
He is compatible with cats and kind children. He is also reportedly housetrained (with a doggie door).
Strange men make him nervous, as do boisterous or intense dogs reportedly due to previous dog attacks that terrorized him.
Fred needs someone who understands and empathizes with what he is going through. With patience, he will come to realize that a good life can begin anew.
