This is what they told us...he was pulled from a high kill shelter near Tuscaloosa, AL. He was put in foster care. His foster begged the rescue to let their friend adopt him. They had a little boy who was in love with him. Well those adopters kept him for about a year and then gave him back saying they just didn't want him anymore.

When he came back he had a nasty injury that had never been treated. He had to have surgery where part of his muscle had to be removed. His scar runs from his stomach to his shoulder blade. He has another scar running across his front leg. His face is littered with what looks like bite scars. His beautiful floppy hound ears are tattered and missing pieces. He looks he has had a hard time in life.

What he still is, happily, is 100 percent a hound. He is sweet and quirky. He LOVES food. He gets along with our cats, other dog and is gentle with our kids. We are in love with him already!

Almost sounds like the rescue place was tricked and he ended up being a bait dog, or he was allowed to run loose and bad things happened to him

Thankyouthankyouthankyou for giving him a great home

What pet owner doesn't love to show off their furry ones? 😉

I'm a dog person; big dogs are my favorite. Always have been. Even when I lived in small apartments in the city, I always had a big dog.

Freddie, the big guy is around five. He's an Anatolian Shepherd mixed with a little Great Pyrenees. Adopted him from a shelter when our lab mix died in 2014. At 8 weeks and 15 lbs. Freddie was very sick with a severe respiratory infection and I feared he wasn't going to make it at the shelter. He got better with the help of a very caring vet and lots of love. He has hip problems, arthritis and bad back knees but he does very well with exercise and medication. Sweetest dog I've ever had.

Lucy (short for Lucy-fur) is the same mix, just more Pyrenees than Anatolian. At just over a year now and 80 lbs she's shorter than Freddie but she's got a bigger attitude. Sweet and loving, she's a great companion for Freddie.

What sweet faces Freddie and Lucy-Fur are I'm not one for intentionally creating mixes but I gotta say yours look like they could be a success story. They are beautiful

I know Freddie must cost "a few dollars" every month to keep him healthy -- five is pretty young for so many issues --- Thankyou for taking him and hanging in there with him
