My Pet Pal: Fizz
This is Fizz. Her name means soda pop in Kiwi-speak. This fall we returned from eight months in New Zealand, and getting a dog was our No. 1 priority. Fizz is an American shepherd, formally known as a mini Australian shepherd. She is just 6 months old and “sweet as!” She loves to play with people and other dogs and chew things. and she is starting formal training classes, although she sits, comes, lays down and often rolls over. She’d love to meet other pups and walk.
