Phil's Story...
Meet Phil! He is more than classic Schnauzer good looks -- he is the whole package! Sweet, devoted to his foster mamas, smart, and has the typical Schnauzer personality.

This ten-year-old senior dog acts like a young boy-- he's playful, LOVES his walks (have your shoes ready!) riding in the car, and exploring with you (see him checking out the tree). He always wants to be in on the action. Sometimes he will get bark and get a little excited outside (or inside) when meeting new people/other dogs and while on leash but settles down. He was surrendered because his family no longer had time for him. His fosters say he was a little grumbly at first but now likes affection and hanging out with you on the sofa! He loves his foster brothers.

Phil is fully vetted, heartworm negative and had a dental where he had a few teeth extracted but that doesn't stop him from chowing down on his food or treats! He loves treats!

Phil will make a great companion. We feel it's best if he is an only dog in a calm home with no kids as he wants to be the center of attention, and is a bit anxious around strangers and visitors, though his foster mamas are working with him on that. We’d prefer an experienced Schnauzer or dog owner who will have the patience and time that he needs in order for him to come into his own.

Prior to placement, all dogs are spayed/neutered, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, dewormed, and microchipped. Dogs also receive a dental cleaning, if needed, and are bathed/groomed before adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Phil, a Millersville Schnauzer (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Miniature) for sale in Millersville, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Millersville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Millersville 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 Millersville 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 Schnauzer (Miniature) breeders who help with Schnauzer (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Millersville paves the way for another one to be saved.
