10/5-update from Dalton's foster:
He is awesome- we love him. He is so agreeable and sweet. He will make a great family companion. He gets along with other dogs beautifully. He is actually doing good with his marking too. He does plenty of it in the yard but I haven't had a problem in the house. I had his belly band on in the beginning but only caught him marking right when I brought him in the house for the first time. Haven't caught him again and have had his belly band off when we're working in the studio or relaxing at night.
HAVE HAVE DISCOVERED THAT AFTER GROOMING DALTON HE IS PURE BREED SCHNAUZER!
Meet Dalton- Dalton is just under 2 years old, and neutered mini schnauzer mix. He comes from one of our shelter partners in Southern VA. Yes, we know he's a super cute lil guy. He's also snuggly and social, and does well with the other dogs. Dalton's only flaw is that he tends to mark,so he will need a belly band until he's totally house trained. Other than though he is good to go. He's lovable, adorable, and a small little guy. Better photos coming soon.
