  • Rescue Status: Available for adoption. Partially Sponsored.

This shy, sweet boy was found, scared and emaciated, in a dog cage in someone’s back yard before he was rescued. But far from belonging in the dog house, this little gentleman takes direction very well and exhibits excellent ground manners while on walks. Still uneasy around loud and sudden movements, he has gained lots of confidence through our barn buddy program and continues to come out of his shell. Though he is unsound for riding, Freddy has made a permanent place in the hearts of many. This handsome fellow would love to find a forever home alongside his best buddy, Moon.
