Hi, my name is Fritz and I am a 9 month old, neutered, Giant Schnauzer mix. My foster parents call me a gentle giant and everyone here at the shelter has to agree.
I am looking for a family who has canine ownership experience, and are willing to work on building my confidence with both new people and new dogs.
I love the great outdoors so an owner who is ready to go on daily long walks is a must for me. And believe it or not I am not your average four legged canine, I am a tripod!
Fritz shortly after he arrived at the OHS with a broken leg.
My three legs do not slow me down what so ever and my mind is even quicker. I just know I'll be a rock star at canine school, and I've already learnt a couple of commands during my stay with my foster parents.

Going to school will also help me come out of my shell with other dogs, as I am super polite in my approach but I can be a little shy at times. I just can't get enough of the outdoors so a home with a big backyard or country living is where I want to be.
Fritz is ready to go for a truck ride!
I am looking for a family with older (12 years +) dog familiar children who can help me with my training. And if you have cats who like dogs, I'm a dog who likes cats, I was pretty good with my foster family's cats and I kind of miss them.
If I sound like the best dog for you, come down to the shelter today and meet me!
