Hi from East Texas

This is Fritz, a year old rescue direct from his former family.
We have had him 3 days now, and he is spectacular.
Never had a Dobie before, only Rotts.
They are as much alike as they are different, as breeds.
Sorry, pic is huge, will just put up link.

What's a B&B? No, I don't think your supposed to advertise unless you upgrade your membership.

Hello from deep in the Heart o' Texas!

Hahahaha, bed and breakfast.
NP, I will put the link in my profile if I can.
Just thought I would invite any fellow Texans to drop by if you are in our area.

Oh, I wish it could be.
Due to the amount of antique drapery fabrics and upholstery, I could never get it completely dog dander free for allergic guests, so sadly, I am afraid not.
I keep my dogs only in non guest areas for this very reason.

Thanks for the welcomes, good folks.
I have had Rotties for almost 20 years, and just lost 2 very elderly ones, (13 and 14), to the Bridge a few weeks back, so I am new to Dobies, but not new to large smart German working dogs.

Thanks for the additional welcomes, so nice to meet you all.

And thanks Kpablo, sending Dresden and Krupp to the Bridge was the hardest thing I have ever done, but they both crashed at once, within a week of each other. They were a totally bonded pair, so in a way it was a blessing for them to go together, but there is still a hole in my heart that was left by the 2 best Rotties I have ever had. I miss them every day, and dear Fritz is helping us move forward.

Dres and Krupp left their daughter, Luger, behind, she is 9.
Fritz has a bit too much puppy enthusiasm for her tastes, but has helped bring her out of her deep grief and keeps her company now.
He is such a sensitive loving boy, and is so very gentle around her, but she just doesn't want to run and play with him the way he expects.

We are all trying to adjust, and our new family member is so very welcome in our home, he has moved into a niche full of waiting love.
We are all trying to learn together how to fill each others needs and wants.

Fritz is a bundle of energy compared to the mellow Rotties, but he makes me smile every day, (ALL day, lol), with his endless kisses and nudges.
We are lucky to have found him, he is an awesome pup.
He is getting a lot better about letting me out of his sight for a few minutes here and there, and is gaining confidence that I will come back if I leave the room.

Did I mention that he is NOT a chewer or house destroyer?
We lucked out for sure, as he had been largely abandoned to his old back yard or crate when his other family got too busy for him.
Poor boy.

Thanks Fitz.kara!
It's such an easy German call name, and I really wasn't crazy about his old name, Brisco.
I don't even know what a "Brisco" is!
Sounds like a circumcision corporation or something, lol.

Ok, Googled it and came up with:

Brisco may refer to:
* Brisco, Indiana, an extinct town in Warren County, Indiana
* Brisco, a community in Cumbria, England
* Biblical Research Institute Science Council (BRISCO), a Seventh-day Adventist group
* Brisco, the lead character in The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr., a 1993 American television show
* The Brisco Brothers, a professional wrestling tag-team which consisted of brothers Jack and Jerry Brisco

At any rate, it really didn't fit this boy.
Fritz works much better, and he answers to it.
