This furry companion just may steal your heart.

Meet Freddie, a long-haired brown and white Jack Russel Terrier mix who weighs just 15 pounds.

Tina Miller with the Humane Society of West Alabama said he’s a fun-loving family dog who’s been neutered and microchipped.

“He does love to play,” she said. “We’ve discovered he loves to run after sticks and balls, and he’d make somebody a great pet.”

The ideal home for Freddie is somewhere he can release some of his energy.

“(He needs) a lot of playtime, walks, visits to the park,” she said. “He loves the dog park.”

He’s a little shy at first, but once he warms up, he’s a loving companion.

“HE might be that dog that will play in the daytime then snuggle up at night with you on the couch,” Miller said.
