Smokey's Story...
Little Smokey has not been a lucky dog. He is about 1 1/2 years old and has spent most of his life on a chain outside his home in KY. He was taken in a few months ago, but that person was gone a lot. So he is in a foster home at this point, but the fosterer has kitties, and Smokey doesn't like the kitties. Smokey is good with kids and good with other dogs, playing well with the foster family's Yorkies. Smokey loves to play fetch and is kennel trained. This little guy was half starved when he lived on the chain, and now he is being well fed and cared for. But he needs the love and security of a forever family. Please consider Smokey as your new family member and help him to learn what being part of a family really means!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Smokey, a Ripley Standard Schnauzer/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Standard Schnauzer/Shih Tzu for sale in Ripley, or seeking a Standard Schnauzer/Shih Tzu 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/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Standard Schnauzer/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ripley paves the way for another one to be saved.
