|Rescue Me ID: 16-05-18-00307Gustav (male)|
Gustav is a 3 year old terrier mix who weighs about 25 lbs. He would benefit from a home who can show him patience and understanding. He is scared of humans and is slowly showing progress in learning what love is. Gustav is kennel trained and is working on potty training. He gets along great with other dogs and hasn't been tested with cats. This sweet guy deserves to be spoiled and loved even if it takes him some time before he knows how to return affectionate feelings. Gustav currently lives in a foster home in Texas. If you choose to adopt him then Rescue Road Trips will transport him north. The adoption fee includes the transport fee.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-04-20-00389Sweet Sid (male)|
Once Sid realized he was 'home' -- even though it's a foster home -- he became extremely friendly and loving. He gets so excited when his family walks into the home after being gone, whether it's been only an hour or all afternoon. Sid is full of silly tail wags and sloppy kisses -- what a Welcome! And his foster family gladly accepts every single one of those kisses and tail slaps because Sid comes from a very sad beginning. He was rescued from a very rural Arkansas town where the owner was in the process of shooting his dogs. Several were brutally killed before Sid and three others were rescued. Sid was very skittish at first, especially towards the foster dad and pretty much all other men as well - he was actually terrified. He immediately bonded with his foster mom and looked towards her as his safety net. If the foster dad would reach down to pet him or offer a treat, even doing so very slowly and gently, Sid would run off. It took a month before Sid warmed up to men. Now the foster dad's lap is Sid's very favorite place to sit! He just needed time to realize he was never going to be mistreated even again. Even though Sid is 'home', he can still exhibit a little bit of a skittish quality. Having so many years living in an unloving environment has definitely left a scar, you just can't grab at him or make a quick move towards him - he will lay his ears down scared that he's in trouble. Sid was the same way with the foster dog. He would growl and show his teeth, so the introduction was gradual. This bond only took a few days thankfully and Sid gets alone very well with all the dogs in the house. He enjoys a good game of chase and tag-you're-it! Sid would do best adult dogs, small, medium or large. He is cautious around young children but warms up quickly as long as there isn't too much commotion and rowdiness. Sid begs for attention and loves nothing more than to curl up next to you on the couch. His all-time favorite is to wiggle his way under a blanket, right next to you, and be completely covered up. He is the perfect couch potato. Foster mom says: 'It's absolutely adorable when I walk into the living room getting ready to sit down and he can't wait to get in my lap, get and give a few kisses and neck scratches and then he's ready to chill. But don't get in too much of a hurry to stop scratching his neck or back, cause if you stop too soon, he gently takes his paw and will tap you on the cheek - we do this several times because I love that it's his way of saying 'I love you and please don't stop'! He's also a great bathroom companion - like having a toddler, don't think you are going to go to the bathroom alone, he wants to be right there with you. I think it's because he knows he has you in a confined spot and it's a good time to get some extra petting!' We think Sid is a Schnauzer/Schipperke/Pomeranian/Terrier mix if we could list 4 breeds! Our vet thinks he's somewhere in the 5 - 7 year old range and, at about 16 pounds, he's a healthy weight. In his forever home, I truly believe that he will realize he is safe and loved and you will be rewarded by being loved back by one of the sweetest boys ever. If you can make Sid believe in forever again, please visit www.pinkshelter.org (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Schnauzer in Connecticut|
Schnauzer Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut 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.
