Fitz Finnegan ~ Adopted

Fitz Finnegan ~ Adopted
He has such a happy way about him

Fitz Finnegan came to us from a shelter in Georgia that is over run by abandoned dogs.   Sadly, 90 dogs were put to sleep there just the week before.  When I saw this boy’s photo, I was determined that he would make it out.  Sherrie Ford, a volunteer at the shelter, moved heaven and earth to get him to the vet in time for Kathy Keith to get him to our already-scheduled transport.  Thank you ladies!

I had been told that he was a Golden Retriever puppy, but when he came trotting through my door, well, let’s just say I recognize Corgi legs when I see them!!!  You have never seen anything as cute as his boy, with his short legs, curled tail, and happy face.  When he runs, he bounds along.  He’s so young that sometimes his legs get ahead of him and he tumbles over.  I try not to let him see me laugh, but I don’t think I’m fooling him!

This is a lap dog!

Fitz Finnegan is quite the player, chasing balls and Frisbees (the other dogs always beat him to them), but his favorite thing to do is sit in your lap and let you tell him how wonderful he is!  My friends Lynne and Laurie came over today and he sat happily in their laps for quite some time.  In fact, he sensed Lynne was  real sucker and worked her over.  If she had brought her handbag instead of a purse, she would certainly have snuck him out of my house!

Okay, so best guess is that Fitz Finnegan was born around the end of February.  Breed?  Hmmm, Corgi for sure.  I favor Golden Retriever over Yellow Lab.  That curled tail…. I’m stumped.  All I know is that every time someone meets him, they squeal with delight.  Well, that’s not totally true.  The women squeal and the men laugh.  What can I say?  He’s adorable! You can see lots of photos of him in his photo album.

I’m fostering Fitz Finnegan in Winter Park.  If you think that you might be interested in giving him a home, please read my Puppy Tips page first.  Then, if you are still interested after that dose of reality, then read about our adoption process and e-mail me at    Thanks!

Going home with Jen and JL

May 20th:

Fitz Finnegan has found his forever home.   Jen and JL married less than a month ago and were ready to add pup to round out their new family.  Fitz just adored them, and the feeling was mutual   I think they are going to make a lovely family, don’t you?

  1. I absolutely adore this picture!! Let me just say that this is one spunky l’l guy!! On the way from the shelter, he rode with me on the armrest, with his head lying on my forearm. Then when he met my adult dogs, he was happy as could be to go explore the wood pile in our back yard. He is a sweetheart!!

  2. How wonderful! We’ve been looking to add a new addition to our family, and he seems like quite a fit. I just emailed you with our information.
