Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Miniature Schnauzer (medium coat)
Weight: 13.7 lbs
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 3/15/2013
Fence Needed: No
Location: Jessie in Union SC
Reason for being in rescue: Zoey's owner was in poor health and could not longer care for her.
Special Needs? Zoey is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Zoey is an epileptic. She is currently on keppra 250 mg 1/2 pill two times per day. At 1800petmeds, this medication is .24 cents per day. https://www.1800petmeds.com/Levetiracetam-prod11841.html. She also takes potassium bromide. At 1800petmeds this medication is $64.25 for 500 doses or .24 cents per day also. Zoey's total medication needs are .48 cents per day. She will need bloodwork a minimum of twice per year to make sure the medications are at the right level for her. Zoey had a major dental in March and will need follow up dental care on a regular basis.
What kind of home would be best for me: Zoey's best home will have a woman as the main caregiver - it is what she has only known. She readily accepts men but prefers women. Her home will understand that Zoey is special in all the good ways. She may be an epileptic but she is also sassy, sweet, and definitely an in charge kind of girl - a classic schnauzer.
What is my personality like: Zoey is a wild child. She prefers women over men but will eventually warm up to them. She loves to find a great lookout place so she can stare out the window and bark at people as they are passing by. She does well with other dogs and cats big and small. She also loves to take rides and knows what bye-bye means and when you get the leash she gets very excited.
Zoey walks well on a leash and enjoys a brisk walk. She is crate trained but prefers to sleep in a bed with people. Zoey would do well with another dog but she would do well on her own as well. She’s very independent and is very confident - Zoey likes to be in charge.
Zoey is an epileptic but it is controlled. Her foster mom has never seen her have a seizure since coming to foster in March.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly and ready to go for a walk
Tips and Tidbits: We do not have Zoey's actual birthdate. We were told she is 9 so celebrate her birthdate on 3/15/2013.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
