Fritz came to be my new "bubby" after my last mini Jake died in February 2010. Jake was 17 and had been with me for 15 of those years. Of course I was heartbroken. After a couple of months I contacted a local mini rescue group (Jake had been a rescue too!)and Fritz came into my life! Fritz was an owner surrender for health reasons. He LOVES his stuffed toys! He barks some..but never at ME! Every day when I come home he runs to pick up a stuffed toy..then runs to me all wiggling with excitement..stuffed toy in mouth! Fritz is 3 years old..quite a change from a dog who at 17 was deaf and didn't move very fast! He loves to cuddle and be with his mommy! He REALLY wishes he could climb trees!!!!
