Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Miniature Schnauzer (medium coat)
Weight: 13.6 lb
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 3/15/2011
Fence Needed: No
Location: Jessie in Union SC
Reason for being in rescue: owner release
Special Needs: Maggie has fatty liver disease which is a common problem with Schnauzers. We are monitoring her liver enzymes to insure they stay stable. She is on a low fat diet.
What kind of home would be best for me: Maggie needs a home with no stairs or someone willing to carry her - she can get up them but it is hard on her due to her knees. Maggie can be an only dog or have other dogs in her home. She cares more for people than for dogs. Maggie's previous owner was retired and with her all day - she would like the same again please. She really loves people. She is not a dog who will go for long walks but if you want to take her with you on walks, she loves her stroller rides. Maggie likes to go for car rides and lay in fuzzy, soft beds. She does not require a lot of attention - she likes to do her own thing.
What is my personality like: Laid back and wants her space. If her sister dogs gets in her space, she will kindly let them know she's not that kind of girl. She is easy going. She is not dog that stands out - she is low key and low energy and all about just hanging out. Maggie wants a person to lay beside and that makes her happy.
How do I act when I first meet new people: She will say hi, bark a bit, and then love you forever.
Tips and Tidbits: We don't have an actual birthdate for Maggie - we think she was born around 3/15/2011. Maggie is good with cats and kids. In her foster home, she has an 8 year old child who visits regularly.
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.
