Freddie is a gentle giant. He is looking for a quieter home with sensible owners as he can be unsure of new people. Once he knows you, he becomes very affectionate – he even tries to convince his carers that he is a lap dog! Freddie will need his owners to be around for most of the day and build up any time that he is left gradually. 

On walks, Freddie can be strong and erratic on lead. He will need walking in quieter areas to begin with, and plenty of training to make him easier to manage. Rented secure paddocks would be a great idea for Freddie so that he can play safely off lead. He doesn’t know how to act around other dogs and can be anxious, he will need further socialisation with calm, well socialised adults so that he can gain confidence. 

Freddie can live with teenagers and needs to be the only pet in the home, he gets worried easily but is gaining confidence and now enjoys playing with soft toys. He will make a sweet companion to a quiet household.
