Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable puppy. They're so new and fresh with every possibility open to them. That's the case unless they're in a high-kill shelter that quickly runs out of space...then they become a bit shy as if the world is a tentative place. With love and assurance..they quickly come back overflowing with puppy love and opportunity. We're so grateful for the efforts of the great Houston rescuers in saving Deena...they could see that her temperament was basically so loving and open that they couldn't allow her to be euthanized. Deena was immediately brought to be vetted and temperament ... (Read More)tested...she passed both and was brought to a great Texas foster home to begin her education around house manners and socialization. It turns out that Deena, at only 6 months old, is so cooperative, yet a bit unsure, that it's been a fun & rewarding experience for her foster mom to watch her blossom. She's like a blank and curious about the possibilities. If Deena continues her regiment of time with loving humans and classes that promote positive relationships with other dogs and bonding with her people...Deena will become a well-adjusted and extremely pleasant adult companion. Deena is a gorgeous puppy with a shining coat that speaks of youth and good health. Her demeanor is just who she is...she appears to be just a bit more analytical than your average crazy puppy. If you pass Deena's test that you love her enough..she is your very best friend and is very interested in some serious bonding. If Deena is treated kindly (treats and belly rubs always help) with clear behavioral guidelines, she will become a well-adjusted pup who respects her people as her leaders. This is the kind of family we're searching for for Deena. She currently weighs 12 lbs (we anticipate her to weigh approximately 16 lbs when full-grown.) and therefore is portable and low-maintenance enough to take along on long walks and fun adventures. We feel it's very important that Deena is provided with exercise and mental stimulation to develop into a well-adjusted companion. She will be a perfect size to enjoy hiking and adventures in the Colorado mountains. We'd also like a family who spends lots of time at home and chooses to include a fuzzy companion in their activities. Deena can be taught that the car is a fun place that leads to great adventures out in the community and can therefore accompany her family just about anywhere. Deena appears to a be a non-shedding girl (she is a mix of 2 non-shedding breeds according to the shelter vets). She will therefore require periodic baths/brushing and great nutrition to keep her coat (with the gorgeous markings) silky-soft and matt-free. Deena will be arriving on transport in Denver on 4/11. Applications are currently being accepted for this adorable and very lovable companion. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-16-00213Phoenix-PENDING (male)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    The very first thing that Phoenix the Schnauzer/Poodle (Schnoodle) wants to make clear is that he's a LOVE! In this sad shelter photo, you're not aware of the striking golds and brindle that runs through his silky coat - with grooming, care and great nutrition, Phoenix's coat will show its gorgeous colors. We've no doubt that he will have to be shaved to the skin to allow his healthy and silky-soft coat to come in. Everything is new to Phoenix... his adorable little nose sniffs shyly at an outstretched hand...and then an ear to ear smile if it's a loving touch - and then before you know it, Phoenix is in your lap. He's so happy there ... (Read More)because his human relationships are so important to him. He also LOVES other dogs..when it's time to much fun! We have to remember that Phoenix comes from a very tough and challenging shelter. As a result of unkind handling and harsh conditions, Phoenix is shy about being picked up. Once he's assured that all is well, he'll snuggle close for love and support. This 3.5 - 4 year old, 8 lb Schnoodle truly lights up when he feels like he's done a good job... some serious hugging and kind words will send him over the moon. Phoenix is such a people dog...he likes older kids but they definitely must be very gentle and handle him kindly. Phoenix can become overwhelmed by rowdiness...therefore a family with kids under 12 will not be considered. We envision Phoenix with a retired couple or individual who want an adorable and sweet dog as a family member and companion. He would be so excited to spend his days in the company of his people and a canine sibling....he's quiet and mellow enough to spend his afternoon snoozing on the couch or would be just as happy to go for a stroll along gorgeous Colorado paths....just as long as he's with his family. He would also be a perfect office dog in a dog-friendly workplace....he would be so well behaved and respectful. Phoenix can have moments of insecurity from the turmoil that has been in his life...a guardian who is present and full of good intention can readily get this great guy past these feelings and let him know he is loved and won't be abandoned. Phoenix as a Schnoodle is considered to be good with people who have allergic concerns...he will therefore require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep his coat healthy and matt-free. Phoenix will be arriving on transport in Denver on 3/20. We are currently accepting applications for this sweet and exceptional companion. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Schnauzer in Colorado
    Schnauzer Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Schnauzer is a thickly bearded, medium sized, Terrier type dog. Schnauzers are proud, vivacious animals. Schnauzers are protective toward their people and want to be the boss. It is important to thoroughly socialize and train a Schnauzer when it is a puppy. Schnauzers do fine with older kids. A Schnauzer needs lots and lots of exercise and a daily walk but can live in an apartment if its exercise needs are met.

lnteresting Schnauzer Trivia Low-Cost Colorado Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The name Schnauzer is derived from the German word for snout; these dogs are named for their distinctive beards. Schnauzers have been used to guard children and have been called Kinder Watchers. Rembrandt owned and painted a Schnauzer. Schnauzers used to travel with German coaches.
