About MeMeet Freddie!
Freddie is a 4 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix who came to us as part of a transfer. Cattle dogs are high energy, intelligent dogs who thrive in homes where they get plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. They like to be the center of attention, and Freddie is not an exception! Since being here, Freddie has loved every person he has met, however he has not enjoyed interactions with dogs he has had so far. Bringing a new pup into your home can always have it's challenges, so we recommend bringing your dog down for a dog to dog meet and greet, where your adoption counselor can talk about dog body language and how to properly introduce a new dog into the mix.
Freddie would enjoy training classes here at the shelter as well, and although they aren't required, training classes can be an excellent way to form a bond with your new canine companion. Being an intelligent and active breed, cattle dogs do tend to thrive in such an environment.
If Freddie sounds like a good fit for you and your home, be sure to come and meet with this firecracker today! He is available for adoption at our North Side location!
