Fred: Update On The Gentle Giant

Today’s blog is dedicated to a heartwarming update on Fred, the Gentle Giant with a Giant Heart.

In March, Fred arrived at HSNEGA in bad shape. He had been dumped at a regional animal control by his own family, mostly blind, suffering from painful arthritis and severely diabetic. Fred was in desperate need of the lifetime of care he had been denied. In May, we wrote a blog hoping for someone to see the love this 7-year-old Irish Wolfhound had left to give. And in July Fred found a home where he has not only gotten a second chance at life but a second chance at love. Last week Fred and his family stopped by for an update on how Fred is fitting right into their family and not only how they’ve helped change Fred’s life for the better, but how Fred has also made a lasting paw print on their heart.
