Rescue Me ID: 16-09-17-00469Maddy (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    AVAILABLE: Maddy was rescued from the Okinawan Pound a couple of months ago as a matted, severely underweight dog. Her foster family has done a wonderful job getting her ready for her 'fur-ever' family. Maddy is estimated in the 1 to 2 year old range and she currently weighs 20 pounds. She only weighed 8 pounds when rescued :( The vet feels that she is now at a healthy weight and she will not get any bigger. We think (no guarantees because she came into the facility with no parents and no prior history) she is a Schnauzer/Shiba Inu mix due to her hair (which is shaved right now) and her personality. Her tail is also curled in the ... (Read More)manner of a Shiba Inu. She is fully house-broken, crate trained and does great with the other dogs in the house and with all family members. She has A LOT of energy and would require two good walks every day plus play time. Maddy could easily be an 'only dog' but she would also be fine with another dog in the house. She is used to spending time alone but needs to go to a home where she'd only be home alone for 4 to 5 hours at a time without a break. Maddy is still a puppy and may nip when she wants attention so older children (or no children) would be best. She is also a jumper and can be quite needy at times...especially if you've been out of the house for a while. She doesn't jump to push someone down but to get attention. I am working with her on this. So far, Maddy has only chewed on appropriate things (bones, antlers, toys) and as long as she has plenty of suitable things to chew on and gets enough exercise, she should not chew destructively. Maddy is up to date on all vaccinations, micro-chipped and spayed. She is heart worm negative and on monthly heart worm preventative and flea/tick preventatives. She has learned several basic commands. Maddy is a low shedder and will need regular grooming to look her best. SHE IS NOT A NON-SHEDDER. Her fur is really soft and although she looks pretty sleek right now, she will have a lot of hair in the future. She had to be totally shaved because of all of the matting of her fur when rescued. If you are interested in Maddy, please email me through this site (please, no phone calls) and I will send you an application to fill out. I will do a vet reference check if you own any animals or have owned animals in the past and I will require a home visit. I will consider homes within 2.5 hours of Zip Code 20772. We also have volunteers in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area and the Raleigh, NC area that can do home visits. Adoption fee is $450. Once a meet/greet and home check has been done, a 2 week trial period to ensure that it is a good fit will be necessary before adoption. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-16-00298Mocha (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Ms. Mocha was use to being breed all the time and is so grateful to no longer have a puppy around that is except for her daughter Lucy. She still makes Lucy mind but is having fun just being Mocha now. She is 10 years young and looking for a fun house with adults only as she hasn't been around young children so we don't want to stress her now. She currently is being fostered on a small farm where she loves the big yard and goes outside to check on everything from the horses to the deer to make sure all are behaving. She is a dear little dog that will make someone an absolute fabulous companion.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-16-00294Lucy (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    What a cutie at only 12 lbs. Ms. Lucy just loves to play and have fun. She came from a home that had been breeding the two dogs that are her parents and she got the best of both. She is a happy go lucky darling that only wants someone to pay attention to her and have some fun. She has been groomed so her hair can be much longer or you can keep it this short, she did wonderfully having her spa day. She is okay with most cats but might be best for her not be around them as she does have terrier in her and sometimes that shows up.

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