Freddy was a stray in Oakland and was found running on I-880 before Oakland Animal Services and CHP could safely get him off the freeway. After a short stint in the shelter, Freddy was evaluated and pulled by Golden State German Shepherd Rescue.
We believe Freddy to be approximately two years old and it appeared he had very minimal experience living in a home. However, he has been in his foster home for almost a month and with a little TLC, he has blossomed into a lovely dog. He appears to be housebroken, crate trained, and with a steady diet of good quality food Freddy has put on some much-needed weight and looks great!
Freddy has gotten along very well with his resident foster brother, TJ, who has taught him the ropes of chasing squirrels in the backyard. He has also appointed himself as the “resident opossum monitor”, faithfully keeping watch when an opossum is sitting on the fence. However, Freddy does not bother the resident rabbits nor do they bother him.
He has met many people of all ages and has been very good and respectful around them. And although he has bonded strongly to his foster dad, his foster mom says, "Freddy will make a wonderful family companion".
