Freya Small 18" Am Bully DofB 16.10.19 RRemedies Centre

Current Status: Available
Freya's Story: Freya was found in a empty house in a unfurnished room in a crate. Neighbours had reported barking and there was a watch on the house when a man appeared the Dog Warden went and found 2 Classic Am Bullys in crates in separate rooms, fed once every other day. No toys No Blankets. The dogs were taken into the care of the dog warden and approached us as she knew they would be homed safely with us. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving her life. Freya is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Freya came in to our Rescue Centre nr Gatwick whilst awaiting her new family.

If interested in rehoming one of our dogs, the first step is to complete and submit our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. We do not discuss dogs without a homing questionnaire submission. You must be ready and we will only contact you if we have a suitable dog. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum Adoption Donation is £250 (£400 for pup under 1 yr old). This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers in particular. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
Freya's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal an evolving picture and positive skills as they build trust.

Original referral information: 11th Aug 22: Freya is a hefty big girl about 2 years old. We were told by the owner that she is dog reactive so we feared the worst. However now that she has been in kennels a couple of weeks she is settling and the staff there say that she is taking no notice of dogs in adjacent exercise areas and we have a bit of hope for her, much more interested in playing ball. She is fine with people. She is also pregnant. Not sure how far gone, I’m going to get her scanned.

23rd Sept 22: Dawn scanned her to find 1 pup but she naturally aborted the pup 2 weeks later. Dawn is getting her spayed now she has recovered

Freya came into RescueRemedies 2nd December 22

Freya came into us last week and has been settling within our routine. She is delighted to meet people but need a little encouragement to leave the certainty of her kennel. No guardiness with her. Looks a little fearful around dogs so just beginning to build her self confidence which will take a little time due to her stark past. JUST SO LOVING

Freya came out for a walk with Jude and I yesterday. She carries nerves and a wariness but loves to make friends with people. She took treats enthusiastically but gently and is a delightful girl. We shall build her confidence slowly so as not to overwhelm her and show her life can be so much better, full of love and fun.

Get ready to lose your heart and hear about another walkers’ favourite!!! I knew Freya might be a little nervous but I received a very warm and wiggly welcome into her kennel. She let me fumbled around to take off her jacket as it’s pretty chilly, and was keen to set off.

Maybe not surprisingly given her story, Freya LOVES her walks. She enjoyed sniffing all the smells she could, very cutely going tree to tree and starting at the bottom then snuffling up the trunk as high as she could reach . Although very focussed on her walks, she checked in with me regularly and makes super cute little noises to say she enjoys a back scratch and her strokes. Kiss of love.gif

She’s smaller than she looks in these pictures and very easy to manoeuvre on her walk, hardly pulling at all. She met a family out and was friendly to the people but told their dog (from a safe distance) she wasn’t too keen on them. Despite that, she was very easy to get in and out of kennel, even though there was the usual ‘block chatter’ going on around her.

To see her and get to know her is to love Freya. She has a wonderful calm energy and makes warm connections with people. I hope she bounces very quickly into her forever home, so she knows how much love she deserves and where she will certainly be treasured. :cool.gif:

Freya sounds lovely

I saw her yesterday as we were in a paddock with Achilles.
I have only just realised it was her, because as Cora says, she is so much smaller than she looked from the photos. And from the description of being ‘XL’ bully.

She was more like large Staffie size to me.

I can’t wait to meet her on another day. She was very beautiful and looked very squidgy!

Fabulous Freya
I took Freya out today and wow what a lovely girl she is. Considering what she’s been through in life this girl loves humans and is great to walk. She was great on the lead and didn’t pull at all but we did bump into a few doggies where she was a bit unsure about so gave a few barks so after a reassuring let’s go command she walked on again. Freya just needs to build up her confidence and understand that other dogs are not there to harm her and I’m sure with the right training and owner she will be an amazing dog.

I took Freya for a walk. I had no trouble getting her out as she was happy to have her leads clipped and she was calm and easy to get on our way. She was such a lovely easy stroll - slack leads all the way. There weren’t many people about but an off lead ran up to within a metre of us and Freya just stopped and looked at it - no other reaction.
She was delightful, wiggley and no trouble at all. A super dog.

I walked the lovely Freya yesterday.
She is an amazing girl. Loves people and loves her treats. Was so easy to get out as well.
Here are some pictures of her and you will notice in some she looks like she has a mud moustache! This is because I dropped a treat and she of course ate it :)
