Special home requirements or medical: Imelda has a right side luxating patella which may need surgery grade 3. We do not know yet whether this will be elective or necessary surgery. We'll know more after her vet visit.

Additional info:
Imelda is a quiet, low energy girl who is timid at first but warms up quickly. She is good with strangers and respects the space of other dogs in the home. She is curious and loves to explore and can end up hiding in the tiniest spaces so she needs to be in a secured environment. Imelda needs work on leash training. She is barking and lunging while on the leash so we are having to work with her to teach her how to walk like a lady and not be quite so feisty. She is not aggressive on the leash - just hyper. She has some separation anxiety when left alone in her crate but she is better when the other dog in the home is crated nearby and in visual distance. She is housetrained. Imelda is gaining in confidence. When she first came into rescue, she was too scared to walk up and down steps but she was a really brave girl and kept trying and not she trots up and down them like a pro! She is a really sweet, affectionate girl and will make a loving, gentle companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Imelda, a Encino Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Schnauzer (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Schnauzer (Miniature) for sale in Encino, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Schnauzer (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Encino.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Encino 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 Encino 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Schnauzer (Miniature) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Schnauzer (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encino paves the way for another one to be saved.
