Hi, my legal name is Fritz but my friends call me Fritzy! I am around 6 years old and am a strapping lad at 70 pounds. I have spent a fair amount of my pre-rescue life living in an outside kennel and had some serious fleas when I came to rescue. I still have some scars from those flea bites on my head, but if you ask me, I'm still a darn handsome fellow!
I love my foster family's big backyard! I love to run and fetch and smell all the smells and nap in the grass when I'm good and tired. I try to play with my foster brothers, but they are "seniors" (whatever that means) and they aren't interested in my young boy antics. I also love my people. They take me on golf cart rides and running with the ATVs. I would do anything to make my people happy.
I am learning good doggie manners and want a family that will continue to work on those with me. I’m working on stay and sit. My foster parents say my leash manners are also a work in progress. I love to lay my head in your lap while you're eating. My foster parents have told me that's not okay, but I just don't understand! I know that's where the food is, and I love food! I even pretend I haven't had food in the hopes that I might get some more! I've got a great nose and I can find food in all of the places where it hides. I will do ANYTHING for a yummy treat!
I do have some dislikes. I am not a fan of thunderstorms. When I am scared I like to snuggle with you as close as possible. It makes me feel safe. I have met cats, but not up close. They say I have a thing called "prey drive." I just think finding and chasing little things is fun!
My ideal family would have plenty of room for me to be active and would want to be active with me. I can stay in my crate but would prefer to be as close as possible to my people. I do like dogs, so I would like one of those to play with. I love my foster dad and he says I will make an excellent family member. A little bit of patience and lots of love is all I ask for. I will do anything for you.
I'm neutered, up to date on my vaccines, and microchipped so my $375 adoption fee is a bargain!
