Sarge's Info...

I am housetrained and purebred.

Sarge's Story...
Sergeant Major or Sarge is a purebred miniature schnauzer. He is eight years old (will turn 9 in June) and weighs around 25-28 pounds. He could use to lose a pound or two! Sarge was surrendered by his owner due to unforeseen events in the family's life, so he's feeling a little stressed to find himself in the shelter environment with all of the noise and other pets. Sarge has not been around small children but seems fine with other dogs and cats. He'd love to be a couch potato and just lie around near his people. He does really well on a leash but sometimes will growl when picked up since he doesn't like his feet to leave the ground. He never snaps or bites, though, and is just making his wishes known. Sarge has a little bit of cherry eye, but his current vet did not feel it was enough to cause problems or to fix at this point. Sarge will seek you our when he is ready for some loving. He's a sweet dog who needs to get back into a home where he is comfortable.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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