Rescue Me ID: 16-08-21-00138Wally (male)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered 

    Meet Wally. Oh yes, this guy is as cute as cute can be. He is a 3-year-old shih tzu/schnauzer mix, or so we think. Wally is totally adorable and can be the sweetest dog ever, but he has some quirks that have made him not an ideal candidate for a family with children. Wally was adopted from a shelter as a young pup. Although we don't know much about his puppyhood prior to being adopted, Wally demonstrates behaviors common among dogs who are separated from their litter too young (before 8 weeks). He can be fearful and unable to self soothe. He is also a resource guarder which is something that doesn't usually mix well with small children. The ... (Read More)family has worked with a behaviorist on these issues. It has been very helpful, and Wally has been doing great except with children. Perhaps it is because he tries to take advantage of them or because they aren't always able to read the cues he gives as warning before reacts. The family has decided with a heavy heart that Wally needs to live in a child-free environment. We agree. Wally has been learning his limits to his social anxieties. He likes to check people and things out on his own terms to decide whether he feels comfortable. Once he has done his appropriate amount of sniffing, he is officially a friend. If things are too much for him, he has learned to retreat and not mix with the crowd. His family often has guests over and Wally does fine with the adults, and the adults do well with him too. Wally does great with other dogs. He doesn't live with any currently, but he has visited several other dogs and spent much time romping and playing. We think a dog buddy in his forever home is fine and might help him gain more confidence if he watches another laid back dog do regular dog things. On walks Wally can either be friendly or ignore other dogs. Then there are times when he feels threatened and likes to bark. It's a little unpredictable. Wally has never been around cats, so we cannot predict his behavior with them. We know that not everyone is up for the challenge of Wally, but we do know that his perfect someone is out there. An ideal home for Wally will be calm and childless. He is an energetic, playful, and fun little guy. When he relaxes he is also snuggly and affectionate. He is very smart and knows basic commands. He has also learned what is allowed and what isn't in his home. These boundaries are important for Wally and will continue to be important in his new home. Wally is neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He is solidly housebroken and crate trained. He walks well on leash with an Easy Walk harness. If you would like to meet Wally please complete an adoption application on our website at This is the first step of the adoption process. Wally's adoption fee is $150. (Less)

Schnauzer    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Toby is eight yrs old. We got him as a puppy. He is very sweet and loving dog. He is house broken and e is healthy. He loves his family. He lays in your lap and wants to sleep on you. The problem is that he is very anxious. He barks a lot and loud. He doesn't want anyone to come into the house or the yard. Although he has not bitten anyone, he acts like he will until he calms down. His barks when someone comes into the house for about 5 or 10 min. He doesn't let anyone near him except family members. When any family member leaves the house and returns he will greet them with loud barking for about 5 minutes until he calms down. We have ... (Read More)grand children and people come in and out a lot there is constant barking. One grand child wants to play with him but he doesn't like him. He has not bitten but he has acted like he would. But again he loves his family and just wants them around him. (Less)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sweet girl. A bit wary of strangers and will growl at them. She warm up quickly. She is housetrained and if you let her warm up to you she's a friend for life. She can be food aggressive with other dogs so timed feeding in her crate are advised. I'd say no small children that will get in her face. She will be fine with kids that allow her to come to them when she's ready. This girls colors are stunning! She is an espresso color with splashes of carmel. She is sweet and warm after a couple hours. Koko is very smart. More pics of her on my rescue's Facebook page.

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