(SRC#1811) BARNEY's  Story

BARNEY with this unique identification number: (SRC#1811) came into SRC's care recently and is being  prepared for adoption by a foster family who have gone thru our approval process.   We at SRC just want him to have that loving home he deserves.

Barney (1811) is a 6 year old very handsome and very tiny (11.8 pound) Schnauzer male who had a dental due to Grade 4 Dental Infection.  Never has SRC  rescued canines that had mouths so neglected -- to the point that there even infection in his gums.  Can you even imagine the pain that Barney felt?  Barney was placed on strong antibiotic which helped to heal all of this.  He also was neutered.  Barney  recovered nicely and  will be  a great family companion yet he has been terribly neglected during his short lifetime –  typical of his breed, Barney shows no aggression only forgiveness.   This is what his foster mom has to say about him :

( Most Recent Update--September 14, 2016   )

The good news: Barney is so cute; his fur is velvety soft; he eats well; he can go up and down stairs; he hasn't had an accident in the house for at least four weeks; he's used to the crate when we're gone and at night (so long as he can see us or Gracie); he's not at all aggressive. All he wants to do is be with Gracie, our Giant Schnauzer. 

Barney is  fonder of my husband and prefers male visitors to females. I think he would do best with a family that spends a lot of time at home, who has a fenced yard, and ideally another dog. The fenced yard is a must considering Barney's current fear of a leash. 

 

(second update)

**YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY BABY!!  I want to share a happy update concerning Barney. About a week ago he started going UP stairs by himself, and just yesterday he made it all the way DOWN. Inside stairs, and outside stairs, he's now a pro. His desire to follow Gracie (GS) outweighed his fear, and he finally went for it. He has also been accident-free for three weeks. We had company this past weekend, and Barney did well with them. He was a little shy, but he eventually allowed my uncle to pick him up. He's also friendlier towards Ron than to me, so we wonder if he doesn't associate women with mistreatment. He hasn't yet tried to jump on or off the sofa, but he enjoys napping on furniture if one of us puts him on it. He's still a little nervous around anything new, but overall, he's come a long way.

( first update )Last week we took Barney to our groomer, and today we finally remembered to take pictures. Attached are some new shots of him.  Barney receives Sentinel, an all-in-one pill for heart-worm preventative and flea preventative on the 11th of each month since his SRC vet’s heart-worm test was negative.

 

 Barney seems to be settling in and in time he will learn to trust us more readily. His previous environment was not one that allowed him to build trust or to socialize so this is a new experience for him. Naturally this causes Barney to be slower at relaxing in a new environment and currently he remains somewhat skittish and generally scurries away if you reach for him.  We continue to work on stairs with him. We carry him up and down, but we'll stop a few stairs before the top or bottom of a staircase and encourage him to do the rest. So far he can handle 1-2 at a time, but he's afraid of any more. He'll sleep quietly in his crate at night so long as he can see us. By default he's doing better with housebreaking. I say default because after his last accident I started putting a belly band on him. There have been no accidents since the belly band. He eats well so long as there's not a lot going on around him. If we're moving about, he stops eating and positions himself so that he can watch us. He's becoming attached to Gracie, our Giant Schnauzer. She's still playing the role of "too-cool-for-you" teenager and mostly ignores him.  As you can see from a couple of the pictures, she doesn't object to his cuddling up to her.  

When ready for adoption this dog will be heart-worm  tested (negative), vaccinations brought up to date,  neutered if not done already, micro-chipped, examined fully by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have  been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release of this dog is at the discretion of the SRC Core Team.

About Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, Inc. (SRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization -- all of our adoption donations go back into helping care for other rescues. We are a group of volunteers whose area of operation is within the areas of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Eastern Tennessee. This non-profit organization's sole purpose is to prevent cruelty of animals specifically canines by rescuing them and secure loving, permanent homes for displaced Miniature, Standard and Giant Schnauzers and to help educate the public about their breed traits and health and nutritional needs to assure their future needs..

Federal Tax Id #27-0061326

SRC applied for incorporation on June 18, 2003 and approved by the N.C. Secretary of State on July 8, 2003.

N.C. Charitable Solicitation License # SL009656

"Financial information about this organization and a copy of its license are available from the State Solicitation Licensing Branch at 919-807-2214 . The license is not an endorsement by the State."


SRC fosters each one of our rescues in a loving family environment and spends many personal hours working with them to ensure that they are ready (both physically and emotionally) to move into his or her new forever home when adopted. Every rescue spends a minimum of two weeks in their foster home before being released for adoption. This allows the foster parent to give the new family a very good idea about the demeanor of their newly adopted dog, and to help them understand what to expect when taking their new family companion home. Each SRC dog is vetted by an SRC approved vet. The dog has been given a thorough examination, been de-wormed, been given all necessary vaccinations, been spay/neutered, micro-chipped and any other medical procedures deemed necessary by our vet have been done ( such as dentals, ear cleaning, nail trim, etc.) The micro-chip is done for their future safety prior to being adopted from our custody and SRC remains secondary after the adoptive parents register their micro-chip so that if they should become lost or stolen and the adoptive parents are not available, SRC would be able to claim the dog and hold them until we could contact the adoptive parents. SRC is committed to the full lifetime happiness and welfare of each rescue that comes into our custody whether it is a Mini, Standard, Giant, or "Honorary" Schnauzer. As of July, 2015, Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, Inc. has been in operation for has been a reputable and successful rescue organization for twelve (12) years now and our organization has placed well over 2500 Schnauzers and "honorary" Schnauzers plus made a large number of referrals that resulted in saving the lives of many worthy canines. In fact, our organization has even placed about 14 felines with courtesy listings and even one parrot, so our worthy mission is alive and well. We are most grateful to all those generous and dedicated volunteers that have put in so many long hours and have asked nothing in return except that these animals live and be happy! Bless them all.

Also please keep in mind that our foster parents are given the first option to adopt their fostered canines before they are offered to other applicants.

Please click on that button and follow the secure link to make a credit card or checking account donation of your choice. Tax letters are available upon request. All these tax deductible donations are used to help incoming rescues with their medical needs. For your convenience here is the link to our website: http://www.schnauzerrescueofthecarolinas.org/

Come Meet Our Pets...

SRC requires a completed adoption application as part of our approval process which also includes a vet and/or personal reference check and an informal home visit done after your application is submitted to our Placement Team for their review. Our approval process is conducted professionally and as quickly as possible.

SRC works diligently to match the right dogs with the appropriate forever homes -- there is a Volunteer Intake Coordinator that specifically works with this assignment to assure that our adoptions are successful and happy ones. All SRC members are volunteers and are unpaid for their services so that financial donations may go to the medical needs of our rescued dogs.

Applicant's specific questions may be answered as soon as the approval process is concluded. Contact is arranged with the rescue dog's foster parents after approval is received so that approved applicants may have any questions answered about the dog of their choice.

SRC also provides guidance for new adoptive parents upon request and is thoroughly committed to their worthy mission. Each dog in our care receives a thorough vet exam, de-worming, necessary vaccines, spay/neuter, micro-chip, and any medical needs addressed as necessary by our vet prior to being placed in loving SRC foster care for evaluation of a minimum of two weeks. The two week requirement assures that each foster family will be able to give the adoptive family a better idea of the demeanor of their new family companion when he or she is adopted.

A tax deductible donation according to the age of the canine adopted will be requested shortly before the time of the adoption of your selected rescue. This is NOT the purchase of a pet, this is a donation for the medical needs of future incoming rescues and is therefore helping needy canines that might otherwise perish without your assistance..

Our Adoption Process...

Please download an application from our website to begin the adoption process. Our approval process is done quickly by our Placement Team. This consists of you submitting an adoption application which may be downloaded from the Home Page of our website, or requested by email from our Placement Team @ our email address which is Adoptions@schnauzerrescueofthecarolinas.org .

Then once the completed application is reviewed and accepted, a vet reference and an informal home visit are conducted, both of which must be satisfactory. After that you will be sent an approval and put in touch with the foster parent of the dogs you are interested in so that you may ask questions about the dog. If your situation fits well with that dog, then someone with our Core Team will help you finalize the adoption and you may make arrangements to pick up your dog! This process does not take more than one to two weeks at the most as long as we are able to get a home visit scheduled in your location.
