Fred came in as a stray, completely emaciated.
He was old, suffering from frostbite on his ear, poor vision and hearing loss.
He sat in the shelter for months with 0 adoption interest.
My family and I seen his picture online, and decided to go meet him. (His rescue sister needed a friend!).
He was nervous, but we fell completely in love and took him home the very next day.
The rest is history. He is my best friend (although my kids will argue he's theirs!)
'I'll follow you anywhere'
And he does!
