Fred Needs a Second Chance
Sweet Fred needs a second chance; he’s one of the friendliest dogs you’ll ever meet. Fred is a 2 year old Retriever/Shepherd mix available for adoption through Home Fur Ever in Detroit. He does well with other dogs and children but has not been tested around cats.
He loves his play time and going on walks so he’s looking for a fairly active family. He’s house broken, crate trained, and has very good manners. If you’re looking for a sweet, loving companion Fred is your guy.
This sweet boy loves his people and is sure to make you smile. He loves to play and enjoys going on walks, so he’d love to find an active family. Fred is a well behaved boy, crate trained, and house trained. – Home Fur Ever

Hope he finds a home.
I hope he finds a great home! Sharing him!
He is adorable! I love his colors and markings.
I like the foster to adopt methodology myself. That is how Delilah came to live with us. We took her sight unseen and I couldn’t imagine what would happen if Sampson hated her or vice versa. I love to see shelters/rescues thinking outside the and thinking of the well-being of their animals. I think there is a lesser chance of an animal being surrendered further down the road, if they give everybody adjustment time.

It’s such a great program isn’t it? As you mention especially when you already have pets in the home.
Yes, I think it also helps the human to have less guilt should the dog not work out. I know I would feel terrible, but it should be the right fit for everyone. 🙂
