Pet of the Week – Fritz

OSWEGO – Fritz, a Maltese Yorkie mix, spent his first seven years as a breeding dog in a  ramshackle back yard breeding operation.


He was crated much of the time and literally NEVER went outdoors.

He also never learned a single thing in the form of commands. We think he did his business on newspapers because he seems to know that but he is not housetrained.

And you know what? The first time his foster mom took him outside to play, he was terrified of the grass.

He had never seen grass or blue sky before.

It was so sad.

But in spite of that awful background he is quickly turning into a real dog – actually one with “Big dog” syndrome, all six pounds of him.

He is outgoing and social, runs up to anyone for attention, jumps into their lap, gives them kisses.

He seems to have no idea how to deal with other animals.

He sort of wants to play but doesn’t know how to go about it.

So, obviously, he needs someone with a lot of time to give him one on one attention, training and supervision.

As you can see, he loves the grass now and playing, and DOG TOYS!

Do you have room in your home and your heart for this little bundle of possibility?

Please contact our office during business hours at 315-207-1070 or email [email protected] for information on giving Fritz your undivided attention in your home.

He is neutered, up to date with shots and healthy.

Oh but wait. Because he never got much vet care he has lost all of his teeth.

It doesn’t bother him, he eats happily and has put on a little weight.

As you know, dogs don’t care about that kind of thing and neither should you.
