Freddy – applications closed – Midlands

Freddy is a sweet young pup, that is coping well with his partial blindness. He is every bit a typical Bulldog puppy and not letting his sight issues stand in his way.

Playful, cheeky, and mouthy with that teeny hint of naughty pup that makes him so perfect. Because of his sight issues he thrives on physical contact and affection, to help his development.

He interacts well with the children in his foster home and enjoys playtime in the garden.

He loves to play with the resident dogs and is learning boundaries through them. Freddy is quite an adventurous boy and is enjoying learning to walk on a harness.

Because of both age and sight loud and sudden noises can startle him, but with gentle reassurance he will be fine.

Dogs name: Freddy

Age:14 weeks

Can live with children: Dog savvy 8+

Can live with dog’s: Calm Neutered/Spayed Dogs

Can live with cat’s: yes dog savvy

Current location: Sutton Coldfield, Midlands                       

Things to be aware of:

Freddy can see shadows and light, so has about 25% vision.

Freddy will need an open uncluttered home, so he can manoeuvre his space easily.

He is still incredibly young so will need strict routine and training, being partially sighted will make it more difficult him. He is doing typical Bulldog puppy behaviours like mouthing, and chewing, due to his age he has not been out for walks or socialised with dogs outside of his foster home while he awaits his vaccination.

Freddy needs someone ideally to be home with him but can be left up to 4 hours in his crate on occasion.

Due to his age and sight issues any young children will need to be supervised around him. And any training started by his foster family must continue in his new home environment, to guarantee a positive development.

Freddy will be rehomed on a neuter contract at 18months at a vet of our choosing and costs covered by the charity.

The ideal home:

Freddy will benefit greatly from a calm but active family home with older children that can understand his needs. Preferably with bulldog experience/knowledge.

A calm laid back and social dog will help his confidence as he grows and matures. It is advised that you use bells on you and other dogs so Freddy can find where you are easily.

His potential family need to be aware of all it can take to take on a dog with special needs and not take this responsibility lightly and be willing to take training classes if needed.

Other comments:

Freddy has blown us all away with his lust for life and everything fun. He is an active little man who has no idea he has special needs. He has stolen the hearts of us all.
