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.
