Sweet Fred is a lovely little mini Aussie but he’s so  afraid of the camera it is hard for his foster mom to get a good picture to show off his inner and outer beauty.

Since he’s gotten out of the shelter and into his new home he’s doing MUCH better and is beginning to really enjoy being safe and cared for.

Fred took a very long time to relax and settle in but now is being a wonderful buddy to the old doxie lady in his home and following mom around.  His new family is very grateful be able to give Fred a loving home thanks to ODH.

Update:  Almost a year after coming to his ODH home, Fred lost his dachshund buddy and his fragile emotional state began to unravel.   We knew he had some dementia but now it became too much for him and turned into constant anxiety.    He was very much loved and will be remembered always.
