Hi Y’all!

Time for Tuesday’s Tails blog hop hosted by Dogs N Pawz and Talking Dogs. This is the blog hop that features shelter pets.

Sorry, no photos of me today.  However, you might want to take a quick look at one of my posts showing my physique.  I’m 8 years old.  Or stop off at 2browndawgs and check out Thunder; he’s the same age I am. 

Now, use your imagination!  This is Fitch!  He’s the same age as Thunder and me.

 He’s 115 lbs and 8 years old.  He’s spent most of his life outside and in a kennel.  He’s house trained, but he needs help with walkin’ on a leash and manners. 

#2962 Fitch

Unfortunately, he’s NOT in a no kill shelter, so he needs to find a loving home soon or a rescue.

Can you imagine what a happy good lookin’ fellow this boy could be?  Imagine him living in your house and able to pal around with you, learning new things and being active like I am!  If he loses that weight, he’ll be a new dog! 

The shelter says Fitch was surrendered by his owner because his family had moved into a new home that would not allow Fitch to live outside.

The shelter is hoping Fitch can find a home that will make him part of their family. Chessies like to live inside with their people.  Chessies worked hard and then came home and lay in front of the fire.  In the olden days you could always find a Chessie by his master’s side. 

He is a dominant male and gets along well with female dogs. He is not cat-friendly. Also, since he is so large, they don’t recommend he be adopted by a family with small children.

  5. Paws crossed for Fitch, Hawk! He sure looks like a cool dog that would be a great companion for someone. By the way, Hawk...I went to a new vet yesterday (and I love him but that's not the point). He brings his dogs to work every day and they come into the exam room with him. Can you guess what kind of dog one of them was? A Chessie...I met my first Chessie and he was super cool. I bet he is just like YOU!

  6. oh boy, I hope that handsome boy gets a home soon, why do people get dogs and then leave them outside??

  7. I shared Fitch's page. He needs a special home where someone is willing to take care of him and love him, that's all! I hope he finds it soon.
