Facts about Annie

  • Breed: Standard Schnauzer
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10441879

Through no fault of her own, Annie found herself wandering the streets in Dallas early June.  Raggedy and shaggy, she weighed 14 pounds, blind, had an injured left eye, possibly deaf, not spayed, had an upper respiratory infection, and had dental gum disease.  She was so matted and flea infested, that the shelter had to shave her at intake.  Imagine how afraid and alone she must have felt!  No familiar smells; no familiar petting and the scent of fear everywhere!  Just all alone!!!  Heartbreaking!!!

 It was evident that this little sweetheart had been horribly neglected.  Annie was CODE RED; there was no time to hesitate, here, none!

Estimated to be around 10 years of age, she was one of the lucky ones to make it out of the shelter alive.  Just as our senior citizens are sometimes disregarded or brushed aside, so too are our senior pets.  Annie came into foster care on 6/29 and spent her first few days at the vets getting over her upper respiratory infection.  She arrived in her foster home on 7/2 and has blossomed! 

Since arriving in her foster home, Annie has learned to get around inside and out.  Since sight is not a dog’s primary sense and dogs no matter what degree of lost vision or hearing or both, including total loss of both, go on living full lives in safe and secure homes.  Annie may not be able to hear but she CAN hear!!  She knows her name and her little tail does a happy dance when you tell her it’s time eat.  She loves to eat and loves treats.  She is a love-bug and snuggle bug.  She is happy snuggling next to her human on the couch or sleeping next to another furry friend.  Annie is also potty trained.

Annie was recently spayed and had her left eye removed and she is recuperating beautifully and taking her meds like a champ.  She is vaccinated and micro-chipped and will be having a dental in another month or so.

Annie, though horribly neglected in her past, has rebound amazingly well with the medical attention she needed, a good diet, and with TLC, something this little Sweetheart clearly had not had in a long time.  Annie has a sweet gentle soul, loves the company of dogs and people and a very special girl looking for that very special family.  Could your home be that special family for this sweet soul?  Please visit to complete an online application and ask for Annie.

Love, Annie
