Freyja’s Personality

This is Freyja. She is about 15 months old, so still in the playful puppy stage of life. My name is Amanda and I am just a volunteer foster, not a professional or an expert.

I am currently seeking help through a few Shepherd sanctuaries because my hope is for her to get adopted by someone with experience.

I rescued Freyja, along with her two sisters when they were about 2 months old outside of a Costco in Salinas, CA in March 2023. I did the Embark DNA testing to better assist with placing the puppies in properly prepared homes.

She is 50% Dutch Shepherd, 31.3% American Pitbull Terrier, and 18.7% German Shepherd.

While it was only the three of them, they were certainly a wild pack. Regardless I was able to house train and teach them their commands in Dutch. They were taught Dutch because an organization I was working with was supposed to take in the puppies but due to lack of resources that did not happen.

All 3 puppies were eventually adopted through me by the end of June 2023. Recently Freyja’s owner reached out that he could no longer keep her, due to his own mental health decline.

Unfortunately Freyja has experienced some abuse and neglect towards the end of their friendship. I decided to accept her back and try to rehabilitate her to the best of my ability (I’m not a trained professional) and find a healthy, loving, forever partner!

Not the ideal pup for a first time dog owner. She is medium/large size and weighs 50 lbs. 1. She will need to go through a dog training obedience class/program with you. This will not only build your bond/connection but it will also ease the transition.

2. She needs a Cytopoint injection every 4-6 weeks due to seasonal allergies. This costs about $160 at the vet. If you wait too long she develops a rash and symptoms of an allergic reaction.

3. I recently got her microchipped and all vaccines are up-to-date. She is on a waitlist to get spayed on July 28th in Gardena. The costs for this have been covered. I am trying to get her seen ASAP.

4. She does have mild/severe separation anxiety. The vet recommended a prescription of Clomiprimine but I have found giving her a daily rigorous exercise routine keeps her calm enough throughout the day.

5. She is VERY friendly and a social butterfly. You can expect to make friends anywhere you take her. Please keep in mind she is still in the puppy stage so you may have incidents where she jumps up on people or tries to weave through their legs.

6. She can walk well on and off leash, although I do not have her off leash if there are people and dogs around as a safety precaution.

7. She does not have any food allergies so you can feed her anything really, but I highly recommend high quality kibble. Her previous owner had her on The Honest Kitchen and The Farmers Dog diet. I personally can’t afford that so she’s been in-between Purina, blue buffalo, and iams. I also, give her some doggy supplement’s.

8. She is not crate trained but that may be worth looking into if you end up paying for a trainer, Which I highly suggest.

9. Commands that she knows are sit, down, stay, follow, fetch, bark, and bed. As mentioned above, these were taught to her in Dutch but if you take the time to do so, she could easily learn these in english.

10. She is very submissive so her demeanor and attitude really reflects off of yours. If you’re calm and relaxed, she will be just that. If you’re excited and hyper, she will be that as well… times ten lol.

She spends most of her time sleeping or nibbling at her toys while in the house. I do not allow her full access to my house because I have roommates. She uses her outside time to really let out all the extra energy.

11. She has been attacked by 3 dogs. Not while under my watch! 80lb female choco lab, 93lb female Rottie/black lab, and a 9 lb male chiweenie. The amazing thing about Freyja is although she has experienced so much hurt, she remains a loving, loyal and gentle young lady.

I have never witnessed or observed any aggression. If you made it this far, I do thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about Miss Freyja. Just like most dogs, she is a big commitment but she requires extra compassion and attention due to her rough start at life

Freyja’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?

Anything rubber, plush, bouncy and squeaky. She is not a picky eater at all! She either enjoys going after a stick/ball at the park and running around like a greyhound or taking naps in the backyard or her bed inside the house.

Cute Freyja Story:

As I mentioned above, she has had an unfortunate life so far. She’s been abused, neglected and abandoned but even through all that trauma she managed to stay a happy, trusting and kind pup.  She’s as playful and smart as the day I first met her.

Why is Freyja Being Rehomed?

I am rehoming Freyja because I am just a foster. I personally do not have the time or financial means to properly care for this pup. I strongly believe she needs to be matched with an owner that is financially stable and both mentally and physically capable of handling a high maintenance animal.

Freyja’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:

Preferably a single family or a couple with no young children in the household. If the family already has a dog, it would be best the dog is male and not aggressive. Freyja does well with cats.

Her adoptive family should have an understanding of how to properly care/rehabilitate a dog that has experienced abuse and unstable housing. Her adoptive family should also understand that it is the most responsible decision to hire a professional trainer ASAP.

I want Freyja to finally have a family that will not give up on her.

I would love to stay in touch and I would hope her adoptive family would be comfortable with staying in touch with me! Freyja has been through so much. It will be a bittersweet moment to finally send her off.
