Greetings and salutations, Colorado! For those of you who don’t yet have the pleasure of my acquaintance, my name is Freckles. I’m a short stack compact Southern gentleman - a lover of humans, friend to all canines and well versed in the art of lady charming. I’m a 1-2 year-old, 50 lb, Staffie/land seal/retriever mix, who enjoys mountain jaunts, mutt wrestling and dinner with friends. ⠀

Despite a real bum deal past, I’m such a jovial and trusting fellow. I’m told I have the softest noggin and the sweetest soul. I’m also well known for my eyes-closed smiley face, which is a mark of extreme happiness (and obvious intelligence). 

A little about me from the Underdogs: Our sweet guy Freckles, with the most beautiful brown eyes, came into the shelter covered in scabs. Even his tongue has a chunk cut out. His face and legs were literally covered in them, and his back had been shaved for unknown reasons. However, in spite of the obvious horrors he’d endured, his personality and sheer love of everyone he met just shined from him. With lots of love and soothing baths, his scabs became scars, and now his hair is growing over those scars to reveal a beautiful, shiny brindle boy on the outside to match his super shiny insides! He’s about 2 years old, with the sweetest, goofiest personality. At 45 lbs, he’s the perfect size for a couch buddy or a hiking pal. He loves both!

If you're interested in adopting Freckles, please fill out an adoption application here:

Underdogs is a small volunteer-based animal rescue and we unfortunately do not have the resources to respond to phone and email inquires about our adoptable animals at this time. If you're interested in learning more or setting up a meeting with one of our animals, please complete an adoption application first. It may take up to two weeks for application review and one of our coordinators will reach out to you as soon as we are through the intitial review process. We appreciate your patience and understanding! Thank you! 

Our Underdogs adoption fee is $300, which includes spay/neuter, microchip, and up-to-date vaccinations.
