Sophia's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Sophia's Story...
Sophia is a 2-year old, beautiful purebred gray-spotted schnauzer who—true to her schnauzer nature—wants nothing more than to be the center of attention. But to be fair, she will make you the center of her attention. She follows her foster dogmom wherever she goes and is always ready for a hug and a snuggle.

Sophia likes to play. She’s particularly fond of squeak toys and she’s always up for a good game of fetch. But her favorite play toys are the other dogs in her foster home. She runs around, assumes the crouch butt position, nips at their heels. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have much success because they are all senior dogs.

In many ways, Sophia is a very well-mannered dog. She is house-trained and crate-trained (although she does not like the crate). She doesn’t chew and is non-destructive. She sits on command and take treats gently from your hand. (She LOVES treats!) She gets along well in a house full of other dogs and has no food aggression issues.

Sophia had a bad start in life. We found her in the shelter looking like the mangiest of mutts. Her owners had kept her in the backyard in this condition, giving her no attention, and finally brought her to the shelter because they didn’t have time for her. When she first came to her foster home, she cowered every time her dogmom tried to take her out, afraid she might be stuck there. In spite of all this, Sophia is trusting, loyal and loving.

Sophia is a high-energy dog and still needs a little work on her manners. In particular, she’s still very mouthy, which her foster dogmom is working on. She’s a little powerhouse of a dog and needs lots of exercise. She would very much like another dog to play with, but she will expect to be the alpha dog. She would be equally happy with some people devoted to her.

Sophia likes to interact and play for a few minutes before she finally goes to sleep. She sleeps in dogmom’s bed, and she stays asleep through the night with no issues. Mornings, she wakes up and wants to play kissy face for a bit and, if she can manage it, get a little tummy rub action going.

Sophia would fit equally well in a family home or single-person home, so long as there’s someone there to love her. No small children because of the mouthiness. She could also be an apartment dog, but you would need to walk her to get out her energy. Once she’s expended her energy, she’s very calm and loving.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sophia, a Lewisville 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 Lewisville, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Lewisville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lewisville 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 Lewisville 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 Lewisville paves the way for another one to be saved.
