Dogs Trust Snetterton seeks loving home for Fred

You may have heard of humans suffering with alopecia but did you know that our furry – or not so, in some cases – four-legged friends can also be affected by this condition?

Ten-year-old Yorkie cross, Fred, will be donning a rather dapper knitted coat this winter to keep him warm as he has been left with only patches of hair on his back as a result of this ailment.

Kate Brewster, Dogs Trust Snetterton supporter relations officer, said: 'Fred is a sweet chap who was handed in to us after his owner sadly passed away. He can be a little nervous when he first meets you, so he will need to find a calm home, with patient adult adopters who will give him the time and space he needs to settle in. He would also prefer to be the only pet.

'Fred may be small in size but he is full of character, and is not going to be a lap dog, preferring to have four paws firmly on the ground. Despite his more mature years, Fred is fighting fit and really enjoys his walks and having a good sniff in the hedgerows.

'Very appreciative of a comfy bed, this little lad loves to come back from an outing and curl up somewhere warm. Throw in a few tasty treats and Fred will be a very contented canine and, once a friendship is built up, a loyal companion.'
