Freddie was found wandering the streets of Brisbane’s north side in 31 degree heat by a concerned member of the public who contacted the RSPCA to assist. Freddie was quickly collected by our Animal Ambulance team who transported him to Wacol.
RSPCA veterinary staff determined he was emaciated, infested with fleas and hookworm, and weighed a measly 12 kilos! He was placed on a feeding plan and administered routine treatments.
After many months of care, Freddie has now reached his goal weight, closer to 30 kilos, and is ready to find a forever home.
Freddie is a happy-go-lucky Staffy who has won the hearts of all who know him. Freddie is looking to live out his retirement days with a caring family and is patiently waiting for a special dog lover to come forward at the Brisbane Animal Care Campus at Wacol. Freddie does require ongoing medication, but prospective adopters can discuss his health with our veterinary team.
Freddie’s previous owner was located and has now been charged with four offences related to failing to provide appropriate food and veterinary treatment to an animal.
Sadly, Freddie isn’t the first, nor will he be the last emaciated dog that the RSPCA treats.
