Meet Freddie Mercury! Although he often looks like he is just not impressed with anyone, Freddie will be most impressed with you if you have a squeaky toy or a ball that you're willing to throw for him over and over again. He has tons of energy, and definitely needs someone who can keep up with him. Freddie is a Boston Terrier/French Bulldog mix (Frenchton ).
He is ~ 3 years old, crate-trained and housebroken. While he is a fan of 2-legged ball throwers, he is NOT A FAN OF OTHER DOGS. He previously shared a home with a cat and did fine, but would need a slow introduction to any new potential feline friends. His dislike of other dogs is likely due to a lack of confidence and doggy social skills, but Freddie is NOT A MATCH for anyone WITH ANOTHER DOG at this time. He also needs an extremely secure fence and a person who understands that he cannot be trusted outside unsupervised. At all. Even if he says it's ok for a second. Freddie was surrendered by his previous owner because he would wait until she was distracted for a moment and then plot his escape. He is super smart and super determined to check out the neighborhood all by himself. His owner was terrified he would get hit by a car, and she surrendered him to keep him safe.
Some of Freddie's more positive attributes: expert couch cuddler and Netflix marathon watcher (once exhausted), fantastic singer and storyteller (his voice is as adorable as he is), and the best high-jumper on the planet (might be a slight exaggeration). While Freddie is not right for everyone, we know he's perfect for someone! Freddie deserves to be someone's spoiled rotten only child.
Freddie is current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He has tested negative for heartworms and is current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative.
Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).
Local adoptions preferred (within Greater New Orleans area and surrounding parishes). We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.
