Frederick’s deep red fur is stunning. He has an adorable under bite and a very loving, easy going personality to boot. Snuggling is one of Frederick’s most favorite activity by far. And how could you resist that cute face? Frederick rides well in the car, has wonderful leash manners and has a stellar personality. Frederick is the complete package, except for one thing. This loving little man is missing a family to call his own. He has so much love to give and can’t wait to share it with his new family. He is sure to bring a smile to your face and your heart with all his cuteness and loving ways. Frederick is looking for an affectionate family. He is a world champion snuggler and is happy to show off his talents any chance he can get. Daily walks and a canine friend to share his time with would be great.
While a few Ahwatukee residents have strong opinions about the South Mountain Freeway (SMF) Loop 202, one way or the other, a majority are totally ambivalent about the road.

Most of us have been paying an increased sales tax for transportation projects since 1985 and any tangible evidence of our money at work is gratifying. Since very little of Ahwatukee is south of Chandler Boulevard, the impact on most of us will be marginal.
