Zelda Fitzgerald's dog.

This is Zelda Fitzgerald posing with her dog Fritz in 1922.  He looks like a Malinois, a Belgian Shepherd. 
The Malinois was probably introduced to the US after WWI. During the war in Europe they were brought into military service to act as messengers, scouts, border patrol and Red Cross dogs.

I hope he gave that poor lady a lot of comfort. I hadn't seen a photo of her before.

WW, I agree.
WL, poor dear needed comfort. She was emotionally very fragile. She came to an awful end as well.
