First time foster carers, Imogen and Samuel, have greatly enjoyed watching the affectionate and charming Apache (now Fred) over the past seven weeks. While they have absolutely fallen in love with his big character, it is time for Fred to find his forever home.
The impression Fred has made on them is apparent in the updates the GAP Team receive; this boy has received a great start and a lot of love!
“Our favourite thing about Fred is that you can tell when he wants a cuddle too and will honestly sit with his head on your shoulder for as long as you need. It’s so freakin’ cute.”
This cuddle monster has also had a good look at the big, wide world; having toured the local cafes ad beaches.
“He went to a cafe and was such a good boy, he waited patiently beside us while we had coffee and he got lots of pats. I love that he doesn’t beg for food and annoy you while eating, he will inspect at first but when told away or in your bed (at home during dinner) he instantly goes to his bed. He also went to the markets in Melville where there were loads of people, dogs and things going on. He even went up to a toy sale and chose his own Peppa pig teddy and carried it through the market.”
Fred has won over the neighbourhood; politely interacting with everyone including young children and other dogs.
“He is the best, the whole neighbourhood love him and he is pretty popular within our street.”
Loving pet life, Fred has mastered toilet training without a worry.
“He is such a sweet, calm gentleman who we describe as an 80-year-old man stuck in a greyhounds body.”
You don’t need a pilot’s license to be on Apache’s crew, just a love for adventure! This playful boy can manage being home alone between three to six hours and wouldn’t mind a medium to large canine companion to also join his crew. His active nature would best suit dog-confident children over the age of nine.
