Fritz is an adorable 6 month-old pup who looks like he might be a mix of Lab (short coat) and Shepherd (big ears!). He came to us from a local county dog shelter with an injured leg. X-rays revealed that his back right leg was broken in several places. Given the length of time since the initial breaks and the severity of the injury, the decision was made to amputate his leg since he wasn’t able to use it at all. Fritz had his surgery on August 8 and is recovering incredibly well in his foster home. This is one smart pup! He picks up new routines very quickly–no accidents in his crate and he pees and poops immediately when he goes outside. Fritz gets along well with other dogs so would enjoy having a playful companion dog in his new home. He is working on his leash manners and having 3 legs certainly isn’t slowing him down. Fritz is a very friendly, affectionate, outgoing pup who is going to make an outstanding companion for one very lucky person or family. He currently weighs about 29 pounds and we expect he will be about 45-50 pounds when full-grown. His adoption fee is $200. Fritz is neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Fritz. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there. Fritz’s medical bills totaled about $900. If you’d like to make a donation to help with his care so that we may save another dog in the future, please visit our website at to make an online donation or send a check to Canine Lifeline, PO Box 25742, Garfield Hts OH 44125. Thanks from Fritz and Canine Lifeline!
