‘Fang-tastic’ Freddie is looking for a new home for Halloween

A rescue dog at Dogs Trust Bridgend with a striking and spooky resemblance to a vampire bat is looking for a new home for Howl-o-ween.

Freddie, an eight-year-old Pug cross Jack Russell Terrier, has an array of strange bat-like features, from pointy ears, to orb-like eyes and fantastic fangs. He came into Dogs Trust Bridgend with his furry friend Lottie a two-year-old Shih Tzu cross and they are looking to be rehomed as a happy pair.

Whilst he wouldn’t look out of place in Transylvania, staff are hoping that a local dog lover can embrace his quirky looks and offer him and Lottie a loving new home.

Carol Eagle, Assistant Manager at Dogs Trust Bridgend, said, “We are amazed by how much Freddie’s features resemble a vampire bat! But, despite his appearance, Freddie could not be further from a vampire and is actually an extremely sweet-natured character. He is sociable with other dogs, loves playing with tennis balls and is an active lad who loves his adventures. Lottie is more on the shy side but soon comes round with some tasty treats and a gentle approach. They are a delightful duo who would make a great addition to someone’s home.”

The pair would love an adult-only home with owners who are around for most of the day. They could live with an existing dog in their new home and have previously lived with cats.

If fang-tastic Freddie and his friend Lottie have cast a spell on you and you think you could give them, or any of the other dogs a loving new home, please visit www.dogstrust.org.uk to start the virtual adoption process.
