Meet Fred, your typical "hen-pecked" husband! Fred only barks when he sees other dogs or when his wife, Wilma, tells him to by barking first! He loves to cuddle, crawl under things or relax in his crate. Wilma and Fred spent time in foster care before being adopted out together. Unfortunately, they have been returned due to their previous family not having enough time for them. Now, they are back in foster care together waiting for their Forever Home.

Fred and Wilma are calm and would be a great pair of pets for an elderly person or couple, as they do not get in the way of wheelchairs or walkers. Fred is looking for a Forever Home for himself and his wife where they can be members of the family and feel secure and loved. This happy couple must be adopted together!

December's "Baby It's Cold Outside" Discount: Adoption fee for Fred and Wilma is $150 and covers microchip, DAPP, Rabies, Heart Worm test and spay/neuter. Adoption fees also allow us to continue saving animals. Please email for more information, as we can not accept calls at this time.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application here.
