With his amazing coat, it seems like Fitz is always “Puttin’ on the Ritz!” A Spaniel-Retriever mix with a stunning coat of many colors, including red, gold, orange and chestnut, Fitz arrived at the Lee County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on November 23rd. This three-year-old stray seemed relieved and happy to be at the shelter, where he could rest, have a good meal and be taken care of. He impressed everyone with his laid-back, friendly attitude. But this great dog had a barrier to being adopted or rescued: he was heartworm positive and needed treatment.
When Saving Grace Animal Rescue in Maryland expressed interest in saving Fitz on December 5th, Brandi Sowell, RADAR’s liaison with the Lee County Animal Shelter, sought our help. We agreed to assist, and on February 22nd, he had his heartworm treatment.
Fitz is described as being good with kids and other dogs. He is a medium-sized dog. He is now up-to-date with his shots and neutered. He is ready for his forever home! Click here to view more photos of Fitz.
RADAR paid $262 toward Fitz’s heartworm treatment costs.
