My name is Freddie, and I am so pleased to meet you. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Am I in the right place? That sure doesn’t look like a basset”. Well, I can tell you that my Mom was a basset. If you look close and maybe squint a little, you can see it. My Dad? Well, your guess is as good as mine on that one. He must have been tall and handsome fellow though, that’s for sure. You can think of me as sort of a super-sized basset. Thankfully, I was deemed basset enough for the great people at CBHR to rescue me.
I am about 2 or 3 years old and I am as smart as a whip. I am house trained and crate trained. I am a very active boy and I just love to play. I may be a bit much for smaller kids, but I sure am perfect for the older ones. I love to run and jump and play fetch, and I will even drop the toy when you ask me to. Speaking of toys, I LOVE toys. I will even throw them around by myself if nobody will play with me. When you are not looking I will try to sneak my toys outside to play with them. My foster Mom says I remind her of a teenager – so active and full of life, and just a little tiny bit sneaky (in a comical way of course) when you are not looking. I just like to keep her on her toes. I am looking for a home with active people. I would make a really great running pal, since I have these long legs and I love to use them. Did I mention that I am super fast? I would also like to be the only dog in the house. So if you are looking for a super-sized, totally handsome dog to add to your family, then maybe you can be my perfect match. Running , hiking, playing fetch… I can keep up, I promise.
