Gigi's Info...

Gigi's Story...
Big fan of: Sniffing and taking walks. Gigi loves using her nose to sniff out things and explore. She also loves attention from people and once she warms up to you, she is very affectionate. She can be playful with toys and gets along with other dogs.

Not a fan of: Gigi has been having a hard time with her recent transition to PAWS. She has been fearful and confused about her situation, but is becoming more comfortable with each passing day. She would love a quiet home to make her next transition even easier.

A little more… Gigi was relinquished to PAWS after her owner could no longer care for her due to allergies. The initial transition has been difficult for Gigi, but with patience and love, she will be able to blossom in the right home. She weighs around 28 pounds currently, but may need to lose a couple pounds to get to a healthy weight. Her previous owner reported that she is housebroken and crate trained.

Dream home: Gigi would love a quiet, calm home with children 10 years and older.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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