Fred 20lb Corgi Mix Hi! I'm Fred, and I'm such a good boy! Seriously, my human can't believe how good I am. I love my crate because it's safe and snuggly, and I do great in it while my human is at work and at night (though I've started sleeping in the bedroom). I sleep through the night and haven't had an accident at all in the house! In fact, I LOVE taking walks outside and live watching birds and squirrels. There are so many things to sniff outside! I am a little nervous meeting strangers and dogs and don't really like when people touch my arms, but head scratches are my favorite! I also am not so sure about quick movements, but if you're looking for a quiet guy to watch movies with, I'm your man! I don't really know what toys are, but I'm learning, and my foster human is helping me learn to play fetch with a ball, but I don't really understand what to do once I go get the ball, but it sure is fun! Fred is heartworm positive and already in the process of treatment(daily antibiotics). He'll get two shots in July and then need to have limited activity for a month. After that rest time he'll be able to resume full activity and be posted for adoption! His ideal home would have kids that are at least teenagers. He likes other dogs, but ones that are much larger than him can make him nervous. He is also available for our Foster to Adopt program. This program allows you to be the family that greets him when he arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you! While you foster, we pay all expenses from vetting, to food and we provide a crate, leash, collars, and toys. Your family provides love (something he desperately needs!) and a safe place to lay her head until he finds his forever home. We also require that you have the ability to take the pup to routine veterinary visits at our participating vets. These vets are located in Wheaton, Naperville, Geneva, South Elgin, and Elmhurst. Spay/Neuters are done in Geneva, South Elgin, and North Aurora. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter.
