Pet of the Week: Freya
Meet Freya, this week’s Red Hills Pet of the Week.
Freya is a Great Dane / Irish wolfhound mix so any way you slice it, she’s going to be a big girl and can be expected to top out at around 100 pounds. At 18-months-old, she’s probably reached her full height, but may still do a little filling out, weight wise.
Right now, she’s staying with a foster family organized by There’s No Place Like Home No Kill Animal Rescue. She was surrendered by her former owner because they fell on hard times.
According to rescue owner Betsy Nowack, Freya is a sweet, playful giant who loves to play with other dogs close to her size. She’s a little shy when she meets someone new and definitely warms up to women more quickly than men.
Freya’s good with kids and she loves to go for car rides.
She’s up-to-date on shots, spayed, and has also been microchipped. Since many giant breed dogs are prone to gastric dilatation volvulus, more commonly known as twisted stomach, Freya recently had a surgical procedure that tied her stomach down to prevent such a life-threatening condition.
If you’d like to meet Freya, contact Betsy to make arrangements at (307) 670-5448, or message her on Facebook.
