Fig Newton was rescued by Fred’s Friends, a rescue in California that specializes in special needs puppies and kittens. From the moment he was rescued, Fig Newton was an incredibly difficult puppy to handle. He was very sick when he first arrived, and as time went on, his behavioral issues and anxieties began to come out in full force. The rescue’s staffers knew they had their work cut out for them with this puppy, but luckily, they had no intentions of giving up.
Now, more than two years after he was rescued, Fig Newton is almost 3 years old and has made incredible strides. He is a much more confident, playful dog than he was when he first arrived at the rescue, and he’s more than ready to find his forever home — but unfortunately, Fig Newton has had absolutely no interest from prospective adopters during his time with the rescue.
