Facts about Mylo

  • Color: Gray/Blue/Silver/Salt & Pepper
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less

Mylo is an adorable 8 year old mini schnauzer who has narrowly escaped death twice... His elderly owner couldn't care for him anymore and turned him into the ACC shelter in NYC where he quickly ended up on their nightly euthanasia list due to his age. A rescue pulled him and adopted him out, but then when he became nervous of a male visitor in the adoptive home and nipped, the rescue's answer was to take him back and euthanize him. Luckily we heard of his story and had to help this misunderstood guy who has been failed by the system and so many people in his life. He's doing well in foster so far and is a cuddly sweetheart sure to charm anyone who loves this intelligent sensitive breed. He needs an experienced "schnauzer person" who understands he can have a nervous and protective side, and a calmer adult home without too many people coming and going. He didn't do well with the tiny dogs or cat in his temporary home but seems fine with dogs his size and bigger in foster so far. Email njwoof@cs.com if you would like to help this special guy.

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage www.secondchance.petfinder.com and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.

Our Adoption Process...

We request that adopters fill out a pre-adoption application either in person at our adoption day or through our website www.secondchance.petfinder.com. This helps us make sure the animal's personality is a good match for your household. Adoption fees vary according to the dog's age, breed, adoptability, and how much we have had to spend in vet bill on them. Adopters sign a contract at the time of adoption, and the animal must come back to us if they do not work out in the home.
