There is something very special about Fitz. When you look at him, you feel immediately calmer. He is the perfect dog to come home to after a stressful day, as his peaceful presence is obvious to all who are lucky enough to know him.
Fitz, a 5-6 year old beagle, came to The Arrow Fund after suffering severe neglect. He arrived with demodectic mange, a bacterial skin infection, open wounds, anemia and an eye infection. Today, under the care of his awesome foster mom, Shelly, Fitz’s mange has cleared and he’s blossomed into a sweet boy who loves to sleep under covers and give kisses to his humans.
Fitz will do best in a quiet home to match his peaceful demeanor. He is shy at first, but opens up and loves his person deeply once he gets to know you. Fitz is a fan of naps and basking in the sun. Like any dog, Fitz needs regular exercise, but he’s not a dog that requires long walks to burn energy. A short walk and cuddle-session afterward will do just fine. Fitz also does really well with kids! He would do well in a home as an only dog or with one other dog.

New Case – meet Fitz
We were contacted late last evening to help this boy . Severe skin issue with open wounds , emaciated, and blood vessel irritation in left eye .
Fitz was originally named Old Fitz because from intake pictures he looked like a senior! But he was just so neglected, he actually is between 1 and 2 years of age . So we will call him Fitz . Fitz saw Dr. Erica Tolar for his eye and will be on meds to help him heal . He also has a derm consult today to determine what treatment plan to take for his severe skin condition. Fitz is also anemic .
Our thanks to Tabitha for reaching out to us and transporting him for us .
This boy is sweet and we are so thankful that we could say yes when asked to help him .
