HistorY : Fredy was found in an old paper factory together with his sister Hira when he was about 7 months old. Since then they have been with us at the shelter. They tested slightly positive for leishmaniasis, presumably contracted by their mother. Both are treated with Leishguard syrup four times a year, so we have the disease well under control. The last blood test was negative and must be repeated annually for monitoring.
Personality : Fredy only knows life in the shelter. He and his sister are very friendly towards people and greet everyone (very!) enthusiastically who comes into their enclosure. If Fredy settles down after a few minutes, he’s cooperative, wants to please, and likes to work for treats. We believe that Fredy needs a caregiver all to himself, who will give him the attention he so desperately needs and who will show him boundaries. He would then be a faithful companion. Unfortunately we could not test him with cats. Due to his high energy he is not suitable for small children.
All animals available for adoption have a microchip and passport. They have been tested for common diseases (Leishmania for dogs, FeLV and FIP for cats). Adult animals are fully vaccinated and castrated.
* Until complete adaptation, adult supervision with small children is essential.
** This means we have tested the dog with cats in the shelter and has shown no reactive behaviour, but this does not guarantee 100% compatibility with cats. Therefore, we always advise that cats and dogs are together only under surveillance.
