Frieda is a sweet & sassy weenie girl who is looking to settle into a furever home. She is ALL doxie moxie & hasn't met a blanket she didnt want to burrow under or a rescue puparazzi (photographer) she didnt want to avoid in favor of a merry game of "chase me".   

Cats & small humans are to be ignored, unless the small humans are handing out food (of course). Canine minions are cool and snuggling her foster furbrother is fun. However, very large dogs or hyper-happy alpha types who want to be all up in her face are probably not Frieda's cup of tea. After all, she is the Queen B & all are expected to serve HRH.

Frieda is housetrained and will quite clearly ask to go out. She will also "go" on pee pads religiously, so a working family is cool with her. Showing Frieda a leash or her harness is cause for *all* kinds of happy twirling and dancing, even if holding still to put it on is a skill that she may/may not win awards for.

Frieda did test heartworm positive when she came to rescue, but has been handling the treatment quite well & is more than ready to go home. Her canine dentist (ok, vet) also diagnosed Frieda with Addisons disease, so she will need to be on inexpensive low-dose prednisone for the rest of her life. This is 110% okay  with Frieda because these pills taste like cheese & sometimes peanut butter or hotdog. In fact, if it were up to her, she be getting constant doses of her favorite flavors of "medication".
