Hi, I'm Fitz!! My estimated date of birth is 03/2012, and I was surrendered to GCCSR a couple of weeks after a good samaritan took me in to protect me from some scary thunderstorms in Houston. She was unable to find my owner, and unable to keep me in her apartment, so that's how I found my way here.
My foster mom says I'm really laid back and calls me her shadow. I just love being near her. I also get along with the other dogs in her house, and did well at the dog park. I am vaccinated and will be neutered soon. I tested heartworm positive, so I'll be receiving treatment for that, but am available on a foster-to-adopt basis to someone in the Houston area willing to take me to my vet located in southwest Houston.
As you've probably noticed, I had an eye injury not long ago. The eye doctor said it's not painful to me, but whatever trauma occurred caused my eyeball to shrink. There's nothing that needs to be done for/to that eye, and I have another one that works quite well! My hair is growing back around my eye, so it will look a lot better once it fills in. The doctor did notice the beginning of a cataract in my good eye, so I'll go back for a checkup in September.
If you're looking for a sweet, beautiful, grateful dog, I'm your boy. Won't you consider giving me a home today?
