My story

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.

Go meet their pets

All of our dogs are fostered in our own homes or the homes of close personal friends. Visits with our dogs can be scheduled by appointment. Due to our work schedules, most visits will be evenings or weekends. We encourage in home visits if needed before a final decision before we adopt out our dogs. We want the most appropriate home for our dogs.
