Fred was abandoned by his family as they no longer had time for him. He led a lonely existence outside once he surpassed the cute puppy stage. He was examined by a vet and found to be severely underweight. Infested with fleas and worms and nails so long he could hardly walk. Testicles so big they were literally dragging on the ground. (Sorry for the graphic nature of this post just wanted to paint a picture). Despite his neglect he remained desperate for any attention he could get. Once Neutered and treated for his infestations he was adopted to a wonderful family with another Bassett. Shown here in his new home with his new brother.
