Hi everyone, my name is Freddy!

I’m a big, lovable goofball who needs a little bit of help. You might say I'm a 'special project'. I am located at Blue Cross Animals Society of Victoria and my friends at Lort Smith are helping me find a perfect home.

I’ve been told that my new family will be fully supported by the Blue Cross behaviourist and loaned any special equipment I need, which will include my crate plus things to aid my training, and enrichment toys to keep my busy mind occupied.

I’m toilet trained and I have lovely manners around the home. I am affectionate and I also enjoy play and games.

What I need from you is patience, stability, plenty of time with a human companion, an active adult only home and to be a solo pet.

I’m very responsive to training and love to learn new skills and tricks. In particular, I need to learn some doggy manners and how to be calm around other dogs, and other triggers such as moving cars.

Do you have time in your lifestyle for a special project like me? And do you have a spot available at your home for a couch potato like me? If so, please contact: sharon.bluecross@bigpond.com


Things to consider before adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime.  But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption. 

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life.  Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life. 

Before you decide, have you considered the following?

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Can I afford a pet? 

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
