About Fritz

Adoption Fee: $150
Australian Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Fritz is a four year old Standard Aussie. He is about 70 pounds and a bit overweight so we are working on measured feedings and increased exercise to help him trim up his figure. We believe he is a Piebald. He seems to hear just fine but we have determined he does have some limited vision. His pupils are set lower in his eye and this affects how much he can see. He sees things below his muzzle. Fritz came to MCAR after being surrendered to a local shelter by his family who was moving. We don't know his entire history but we were told he didn't do well with other dogs. We are still getting to know Fritz but he has shown us some positive interactions with other dogs. What we have seen so far is that he's a typical Aussie who is rambunctious and likes to jump and nip. He doesn't seem to have been taught good boundaries as a younger dog. He can meet other dogs and walk along side them and seems to do OK. Then he gets excited and gets too rambunctious and in their face and doesn't understand correction from the other dog. With a good behavior trainer and consistent work he maybe able to learn how to coexist with other dogs, however at this time he may be best as an only dog. He will need a family committed to giving him an active lifestyle that doesn't have young children or grandchildren. He will need a family who understands Aussies or herding breed dogs and is willing to work with a positive reinforcement trainer to help him improve his basic obedience.
