About Us
Fritz, the Dog of the Day
Name: Fritz
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male Breed: Miniature Schnauzer
Home: Massachusetts, USA
   Fritz, a "Miniature" (25 pounds!) Schnauzer came to us from Louisiana a year and a half ago. He is between five and seven years old, sadly we are not sure since he was dumped at a shelter in Louisiana. He was rescued (ironically) by Golden Retriever Rescue Lifeline from Biddeford, Maine and came up to New England to live in his forever home! He is reactive, grumpy, and can't walk up stairs to save his life, but he is also adorable, sweet, funny, cuddly, communicative, and smart (and stubborn) - he's outwitted Airedales! We could not love him more. I am a first-time dog owner, and I'm so glad we did positive reinforcement training from the beginning. It has formed a strong relationship.

    Fritz loves: cuddles, back scratches, freeze dried duck and salmon, marrow bones, boiled egg, terriers, ladies

    Fritz hates: precipitation, big dogs, big trucks, big men, middle school boys, stairs

   Some of our favorite things he does that melt us every time:

     - when he is playing by himself or with doggie friends, he will run over to check in, give a kiss and then run back to play

     - when the pack is all back together (everyone is home from work, or we run into someone he loves on a walk) he throws back his head and gives a "happy howl"

     - rests his chin on our arms, legs, hands, etc. and pushes down really hard contentedly.
