|Rescue Me ID: 14-12-17-00261Odie (male)|
Schnauzer Age: Young Adult
|Compatibility:|| Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults |
|Personality:|| High Energy, Very Dominant |
|Health:|| Neutered, Vaccinations Current | I'd like to introduce Odie, a 3 year-old neutered male (we neutered him) 'alpha dog' miniature Schnauzer, who is truly the sweetest, most loving male dog I've ever known. He's a cuddler, a snuggler, a clown and a rascal! If I had to describe him in one word, it would be 'busy'. He's always moving, investigating, playing, chasing something (squirrels are a favorite), attacking his toys, or just up to mischief in general. He's an incredible representative of his breed too, with perfectly cropped ears and tail, textbook conformation and movement, and very nice charcoal/silver coloring with perfect markings. I would guess someone paid a lot of ... (Read More)money for this boy, but never came looking for him, and never answered our ads. All in all, he's a GREAT dog! Would I like to keep him myself? Absolutely! The problem is, he's very jealous, and demands to be the top dog, making him a bully to the two dogs we already had when he showed up on our doorstep, looking so raggedy, we weren't even sure what kind of dog he was. Don't get me wrong-Odie loves all dogs, all cats and all adults/children he's met, but is extremely possessive of his humans, and as I said, will be a bully and an enforcer when he believes he needs to be. Sadly, because of his behavior, I feel that the best household for Odie is not ours. Ideally, it's going to need to be one where he's the only dog. He'd be perfect for a senior with a yard; he'd provide nonstop entertainment, and make a fantastic and loving companion. He's polite, always asking permission to get up on furniture, isn't obnoxious at the dinner table, and is well-mannered in general. However, he's also an escape artist, so identifying tags or a microchip are a must. Odie is a really sweet boy, who just needs another chance. He's current on all shots, heartworm negative, and has no health issues, except for an occasionally upset tummy. The $250 adoption fee is going toward covering what we've spent on this lover boy (though, if you add another $2000, it would probably be closer to the actual cost). He'll come with a bed, a coat and toys-you provide the home and the love. Thanks for considering Odie! (Less) Adoption Fee: $250.00 Animal Location:
