Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted April 2, 2014
I rescued Frisk during an icy drive in Winter, 2012. He was running around with slighyly matted fur and was obviously freezing, so I checked his tags (which weren't too informative) and took him to the local shelter to have a pro look him over. I got strangely attached to Frisk, and after a few weeks of intensely missing him, I got to take him home with me! He instantly bonded with my other animals and - to me at least - felt welcome and at home, probably for the first time in his short life. As a stray, he was obviously easily agitated and scared, and so I decided to keep him home and train him as to not shake him up by introducing new people just yet. He was easy enough to train, and did really well figuring out agility and being friendly with people once they opened up to him. After about six months, Frisk and I started hitting the dog park and, well, he's established his alpha dog status with the other males, while being a little too kind and open with the females! I feel strongly about keeping the stray population as small as we can, so early on Frisk was fixed and that's gone a long way to increasing the enjoyment of his life, and mine.
