Help a furkid in need

Hello, my name is Frida!


More about me

Female (Small). Boston terrier. Young-adult - DOB: 2017.
I am good with:

Shelter: Boston Terrier Rescue (Gauteng)

Frida came to us a few months ago when she was picked up in a veld outside Groblersdal in Limpopo.
Weighting only 5kg at the time, so was emaciated, weak and sick with billary. She had an infection in her left eye and also a deformed right eye (she’s got no vision in her right eye). We rushed her to the vet where we started treating the billary and her left eye (to try save her vision). Her cornia was damaged. She made it through the first few days and started eating again. We had hope! Her eye improved a lot over the next days and we are happy to say that her vision in her left eye recovered and healed perfectly. She also picked up more weight. A few weeks later we noticed abcesses on her hind leg – and thats when we saw! Pellets – from a pellet gun. Now we can only imagine how those got there.
It’s been a long road to recovery – but wow! Just look at her now! Her foster family has been incredible and we are so thankful to them.

Frida is ready to be homed and we are searching for her forver home. She does need a specific home and it’s made it a bit harder to find…
She gets jealous when she is over excited and then she doesn’t get along with other dogs. So we really do have to find her a home with NO OTHER PETS.
Frida is good with older kids (she doesn’t know babies but there is no reason for concern). She doesn’t mind waiting at home for you while you work so you really don’t have to feel bad. She’s a great little companion with lots and lots of love to give. She’s great in the car, she’s house trained and she loves going for walks! Perfect partner for a coffee date and a walkie :)
She’s young (around 2 years old we think) and she’s perfectly healthy now.

If you think you would be able to offer Frida a home, please get in touch with me and we can discuss more. Frida is in JHB. Home checks and adoption fee will apply. Her adoption fee is R900 and she is vaccinated and sterilized already. If she travels there will be a cost but we will discuss this with you in person. Email
