ADOPTED ON 11-18-14 – Freddie is a male Chihuahua and weighs approximately 7lbs; he is about 6 months old. Freddie was picked up by animal control with his 2 sisters on Sept 10. We fostered him into Patrick’s Pals on 10/8/14. Freddie is in good health, up to date on all vaccinations and heartworm negative. He will be arriving in Connecticut on 11/15/14.
We may as well call Freddie the mayor, because he is always introducing himself to new people everywhere he goes! He is extremely outgoing and loves life! He is wonderful with other dogs and loves to play. Freddie lives with a mother cat and two half grown kittens, he does not seem to notice they exist. He does excellent on leash and currently goes on walks 3 times a day. He does okay in a crate, and is working on perfecting his housetraining skills. Freddie has done excellent with children, but he is not recommended for small children, due to his tiny size. He has done very well in the car and enjoys sitting on someone’s lap for the ride.
Freddie has a high activity level and although he is small, he needs someone who will be able to provide him with enough stimulation. He enjoys the company of other dogs, and enjoys playing with his sister Macy, who is quite the opposite of Freddie and much more reserved. It would be wonderful if they could go to home together, but it is not a deal breaker if it is not possible. He could certainly coexist with cats. Another great thing about Freddie is he won’t break the bank on the food bill, he takes his time when eating and only eats a little bit at a time. Freddie’s new home may include children over the age of 7 as he is a very small dog, with a huge spirit! If you are interested in adopting our Fantastic Freddie, this is a perfect little dog, please fill out application.

- Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
- Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOGS
