Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    We took Diya into our rescue after she was hit by a car and abandoned at the vet clinic. Diya had head trauma from the accident and was blind for roughly a week. She is doing much better now and learning to be brave, that she should potty outside and basic commands. Diya is young just under 2 years old, very food motivated, and needs a patient loving home. She does well with other dogs. She is chipped, fully vaccinated, spayed and heartworm negative. This sweet girl is blossoming into a great little dog and needs a family that will continue building her confidence and teaching her new things. Could that be you? ... (Read More) (Less)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS! Are you looking for a sweet, laid-back, mature and cuddly friend to brighten your days? Then look no further! I'm Judy and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I'm a small Schnauzer mix with luscious silver and grey hair, big black eyes, and unbelievably long black eyelashes. At only 17 pounds and 7 years young, I think I'm the perfect companion for anyone who wants a dog who is more settled, but still young-at-heart enough to enjoy the best life has to offer! I somehow became separated from my former ... (Read More)people. While wandering all alone, I suffered injuries and ended up at Chicago Animal Care & Control. The vet thinks I might have been hit by a car. Enter Fetching Tails Foundation, who swooped in to rescue me and help me get the medical care I needed. I've been recuperating in a loving foster home for the past couple months, and now I'm almost ready to go to my forever home. I love most people, and brighten up the minute I see my foster mom and dad. I'm a little shy with new people at first, but it doesn't take me long to warm up if you pet me - especially if you rub my belly! My foster family also includes two children, ages 9 and 11, and I really enjoy some cuddle time on the couch with them. I like that they're a little older and know how to behave around furry family members, especially small ones like me. I get along well with dogs, although I'm a little timid around bigger dogs or really active dogs until I know they're not going to hurt me. I'm fostered with three other dogs: A senior Rott mix named Ari (who is also available for adoption through FTF), a 3 year old pit mix, and a 5 month old, mid-sized puppy. The Rott mix is my favorite because she's mellow and gentle. Don't get me wrong - I like my other two foster sisters as well, I just prefer to hang around with slightly calmer, more settled dogs. Maybe you feel the same way? I have a positive, easy-going personality, and my favorite place to be is wherever my people are relaxing. I'm hoping for a forever home where the humans will let me sit on the couch with them, and maybe even let me sleep on the bed. I enjoy relaxing in the grass in my foster family's back yard. I like short walks, although I still have to build up my strength after my injuries. I had two pelvic fractures and had to have FHO surgery. For those who aren't familiar with that, my foster mom can fill you in on everything you need to know. Even though I'm fine now, I was off my legs for a couple months and have been undergoing physical therapy to get back into shape. I'm definitely looking forward to going for nice strolls with my new forever home. I'm crate trained, but I really don't need to be in a crate, and I'm never crated anymore in my foster home. I'm house trained and have excellent manners. I've never chewed on anything non-edible. I rarely bark unless I'm excited about something - like you coming home! My foster family has all four dogs on a regular potty schedule, so I don't have to ask to go outside. I sometimes go sit by the glass door to the backyard, but other than that, you might have to teach me how you want me to tell you I need to go out, OK? I know 'sit,' 'stay,' and 'no.'. I come when called, and I'm good on a leash. Oh - I forgot to tell you about the cutest little dance I do at feeding time. My foster dad says I tap dance! Even when I was still crated after my surgery, I would stand up and stomp my front feet really fast, bobbing up and down, to show I was excited about my meal! You're probably getting the idea that I'm really laid back and low maintenance. Mostly I just enjoying being near my people or the other dogs. I'm perfectly happy in any living space - small apartment or bigger house, I'll fit in anywhere. I can go up and down stairs now, so that's not a worry. If my new home has a fenced yard so I can lounge in the back yard off leash, that's wonderful. If not, that's ok, too. I'm sweet, loyal, affectionate, and adorable. I'm waiting for a family or individual with whom to share all the love that I still have to give. Could it be you? I hope so! Please let my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation know that you want to meet me! Love, Judy If interested please fill out an application on our website at or if any questions please email us!

Schnauzer    Age: Adult

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

    It is with much sadness that we have to give up our dog. He was recently diagnosed with Diabetes. My husband is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer and I cannot manage both. Gio is a great dog; one of the best dogs I have ever owned. He is very intelligent and wonderful with people and animals. He is a lover! I will not be able to manage his diabetes properly. He will only go to a home where he will be loved and treated wonderfully. This person needs to be completely committed to caring for his diabetes and all that it will require.

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

    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.
