Fitz

West Highland White Terrier Westie

 
Small  |  Male

Philadelphia, PA

 

This charming old gentleman is Fitz. Like any older man, he is suffering from hair loss, some wheezing and lots of tartar on his teeth. Unless you look at him closely, you would never know that he isn't a young dog. He's bouncy and affectionate and has the best smile! Fitz could live with other dogs, cats or children. Fitz is a senior who will need special senior care.
Name: Fitz
Location: Foster Care
Breed: Westie mix (Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label)
Age: 10+ years old
Weight: 14 pounds
Reason for surrender to shelter: Basically, Fitz' owner surrendered him because he was old.
If you are interested in meeting Fitz, please email dogs@phillypaws.org for an application. If you have questions, please email the above address or contact our adoption staff member at 215-298-9680, ext. 16.
