Here's a courtesy post for our friends at Pets with Disabilities:
Freddie is 1 - 2 years old, german shepherd mix weighing 50 lbs. He was born with a non-functioning back rear leg which never grew. That does not stop him from getting around.
Freddie was born at the shelter and never felt grass or dirt between his toes until he arrived at Pets with Disabilities rescue. Freddie is a little shy but is doing great in his foster home in Sewell, NJ. When he arrived at his foster home he did not know how to do steps or walk on a leash…now he does both. Freddie is very smart and learns quickly! And don’t worry about his special “ability” – he doesn’t even know he is different and it doesn’t slow him down at all.
Freddie will need kind guardians to help him continue to learn about how great life can be with people who love him. Your patience will be rewarded many times over because this dog is a real sweetheart - wanting to share his heart. Freddie loves being outside in the yard, being brushed, going for walks, and gets along great with other dogs and cats too. He is crate trained and housebroken. This sweet boy will make someone a loyal and devoted friend for years to come.
Please consider adopting Fantastic Freddie so he can have a home of his own.
