Marlene Beavis received Fritz the pure miniature dachshund as a surprise birthday present from her husband Errol and they’ve been inseparable ever since.

Fritz is nine years old now and he’s been part of the family since he was eight weeks old.

Here’s what Marlene has to say about Fritz:

“Fritz travelled Australia in a motorhome with us for five years and he loved it,” she said.

“We were travelling, and my husband got sick, and we ended up here at Elysium Village. Fritz goes over and visits Errol at Wongaburra where he is now – he loves to go and see daddy.

“I think Fritz has got the best personality and he’s a great listener. He’s just great company for me and he loves living in the village because there’s lot of other dogs and he loves happy hour. He’s a very social dog and I think travelling Australia made him that way.”
