Baxter's Story...
Say Hello to Baxter! Baxter was found wondering and turned in to the Shelter for safe keeping in January. He had a collar, was well groomed, and friendly as could be so we tried really hard to find his owners but no one ever came looking for him. He was adopted by an elderly woman right away who said he reminded her of her previous dog of many years that had just passed away. We weren't sure it would be a good fit but she was determined to love him, so we sent him to his new home with her. Here we are in May and that very sweet woman has finally given in and said, "I love him so much but I don't think he's as happy here with me as he could be, and I hate to keep him from having the best life possible." Baxter would fit better in a family environment or a home with other dogs for him to play with. He's very social, he loves everyone. He likes to go for walks, loves to ride in the car, and is a very good snuggler. He is curious about cats but has no aggression towards them. He would probably really love to have a fenced yard so he could just run off leash until his heart is content or someone who will take him to the dog park on a regular basis so he can play with the other kids. Baxter is thought to be a Schnauzer mix. (He looks a little different depending on how he is groomed) He is approx 18mths -2 years old. He is current on all vaccinations, is heart worm negative, and neutered. His current owner said she has been teaching him commands. He knows sit, stay, & come. Most of the time anyway. :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baxter, a Allentown Schnauzer (Standard) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Standard) for sale in Allentown, or seeking a Schnauzer (Standard) dog from a breeder in Allentown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Allentown 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 Allentown 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 (Standard) breeders who help with Schnauzer (Standard) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Allentown paves the way for another one to be saved.
