Facts about Fitz

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
The best word to describe Fitz is BOISTEROUS! He is active, exuberant , playful and definitely not for a couch potato. He loves to play ball and will retrieve as long as you will throw. He needs a home with lots of room for him to stretch his long legs.

Fitz was found on a deserted country road in southern Tennessee along with his sister and 2 other tiny puppies. All were thin and in terrible shape. Time and TLC have helped him grow into the hefty 65 lb. boy he is today.


Fitz is about 2 1/2 years old now, but he is still very much a large puppy. He currently lives outside in a kennel, but he has stayed inside in a crate several times during this cold winter and done very well. He stayed in it quietly all night and did not have any accidents.

Fitz enjoys walking on a leash. He is of course very excited at first, but settles down pretty quickly and walks very nicely after a few minutes.


Fitz is a people pleaser, and very food driven. He would be very trainable with a dedicated owner. Only adults live in Fitz's foster home, so not sure how he would do with children. I think he would love older kids, but he is too young and active for toddlers.


Fitz would do best as an only pet in a home with a fenced yard. He gets really excited playing with other dogs and sometimes over powers them. Fitz thinks cats and chickens are for chasing, so a home without these pets would be best as well.


Fitz loves attention and will thrive in a home that loves him and gives him plenty of room to run.
