Our vivacious Freda has the bouyant good nature that attracts American Pit Bull Terrier folks to this lovable breed. No other breed has been so overbred, mishandled and maligned as the APBT, and we are thrilled to have Freda with us, early in her young life, so that we can find her forever home.

Three years old, Freda started off her rescue journey as a statistic: just one more homeless pit roaming the mean city streets. She has traversed the rescue process with ease, and has displayed great confidence and panache as she has interacted with everyone along the way. (Well... except the police officer who brought her to NYCACC. We hear that she was not his biggest fan, especially after he pepper- sprayed her in the eyes). Freda's shelter behavior evaluations were good, and she was adopted through the shelter adoption program to a young couple who learned quickly that Freda was not a good fit for their low key lifestyle.

NYCACC approached us on Freda's behalf, because Staff and Volunteers had fallen in love with this russet beauty, and we invited her to Connecticut. Freda has been handled with great love, and has a friendly, outgoing temperment, although, she is not a fan of rough handling. She would be a fantastic choice for a gentle bully breed lover, who is willing to continue her exercise and obedience regimen.

Freda is high energy and needs vigorous exercise. She loves to be on the go: the more action, the better. A bored, frustrated Bully will surely make mischief, but in the hands of dedicated breed enthusiasts, who rejoice in their high energy companions, Pitties are Man's devoted BFFs.

Freda is a total stunner. She is a Red Nose, ABPT, and has twinkling greenish-hazel eyes. Her coat is a pretty reddish carmel with white tuxedo markings, and cute white socks. Freda is a strong muscular dog, and she is at an ideal weight of 50 pounds. She is a strong girl, who require some experienced handling on leash walks. Freda knows all of her basic obedience commands and handles well with assertive leadership.

We think that Freda will thrive in the active home of the experienced Bully Breed lovers, who have a basic understanding of dog behavior and obedience techniques. Freda is very responsive to training, and is both treat and praise motivated. We'd like to avoid homes with small children, since Freda is a strong dog, and may overpower toddlers.

Freda would probably do best in an only dog environment, where she can bask in her family's attention. Freda's adapters will be able to walk her easily on lead in a public place or urban environment, but she may not be an appropriate candidate for unstructured play in a public dog park. Freda likes to play rough, and rough-house play among high energy.dogs can often bubble up into a tiff or two! Freda is not a good candidate for a feline home.

Freda has been thoroughly vetted. She is spayed, and has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), and has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed, and microchipped.
