Lucy's Story...
Little Peanuts Puppies were rescued from an abandoned lot. An 8 year old child had heard about this family and helped get them to rescue by putting her birthday money toward their vaccinations! She also let us know that she adopted one of the siblings (Annabelle, not pictured), and wanted to find homes for the rest. Their mother had apparently already been taken along with 2 other of the pups. We were told that the mother dog was believed to be a Schnauzer mix and the father was believed to be a miniature pinscher. They look like miniature lab mixes, but certainly will not be lab sized. We have no way to confirm their parentage, but what we do know is 3 babies needed our help and are now in a warm, safe foster home awaiting adoption!

Little Lucy is the smallest of the 3 we rescued. Lucy is described by her foster mom as somewhat reserved, but playful, and the underdog. She gets walked over and pushed out by her bigger siblings. Lucy also craves human interaction. Lucy LOVES to be petted and is quite the snuggler after she is finished playing.

Lucy and her siblings are are going to be small dogs. They are currently approximately 6 months old, and are underweight but beginning to gain. Lucy is about 7 pounds and is the smallest. Once she has finished growing and has put on proper weight we do not expect her to get much bigger than about 15-20 lbs.

Lucy and siblings were born and raised by their mother outdoors in an abandoned lot. Whoever owned the mother had to have abandoned her and the puppies. Strangers came to their aid and provided a dog igloo, and food, to keep the family safe until rescue could be found. Linus, Patty, and Lucy are all in a warm, safe, foster home where they are learning about being indoor dogs, learning to use the bathroom outdoors only, and learning good house manners. Potential adopters must be willing to work patiently with these babies to help bring out the best in them. They are not feral at all, and are extremely loving and cuddly! They also get along well with the foster mom's other dogs and so far have ignored her cat who is bigger than them :)

Lucy and her siblings are very bonded, but can be adopted separately as long as they are not segregated from their human family for sleeping or long periods of time.

Lucy and her siblings will be completely vetted prior to adoption, including spay/neuter, microchip, all vaccines, and dewormed. They have been started on flea/tick prevention as well and will receive a health certificate from the vet. Adopters will need to provide them with their booster vaccines and must keep them on heartworm prevention for the rest of their lives.

Interested adopters please request an adoption application by emailing Adopters are subject to reference checks, vet reference, meet and greet, and home visit. Adoption fee applies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucy, a Bowie Schnauzer (Miniature)/Miniature Pinscher puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Miniature)/Miniature Pinscher for sale in Bowie, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature)/Miniature Pinscher puppy from a breeder in Bowie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bowie already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bowie breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Schnauzer (Miniature)/Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Schnauzer (Miniature)/Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bowie paves the way for another one to be saved.
