Meet Freckles Sweet, handsome, roly poly Freckles is just a big love bug who's led a very scary life before coming to our shelter. Freckles is thought to be a Labrador/American Bulldog mix. He's almost three years old. He's absolutely adorable, like a big teddy bear. Since arriving, Freckles has been smothered with kindness and he's responding beautifully. He's learned that not all hands hit and that having a safe place to sleep at night and plenty of food does wonders for the soul. Freckles loves to give doggie kisses and tail wags. He loves being with people. One of his favorite things to do is sit with his person and be petted. Freckles has become a joyful, overgrown puppy dog with a happy personality. He's sweet and silly and a lot of fun to be around. He has a gentle demeanor though and will do best with a gentle approach from his person or family. Freckles walks well on a leash. He loves his walks. He loves meeting people when he's out and about. He also loves playing in the yard and will need a containment fence to keep him safe. Freckles is afraid of dogs. He might do okay with a quiet and laid-back dog, but alpha dogs and dogs that get in his face scare him. He is also afraid of cats and will do best in a home without them. With a kind and patient person or family, Freckles will continue to blossom under their attention and consistency. Freckles has so much love and loyalty just waiting to give to his new family or person. He truly just wants to belong to someone who won't hurt him, but will show him what a loving life can be. Perhaps you'll be the one to give Freckles his chance at a happy life.
