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.

Our Adoption Process...

Homeward Bound Schnauzer Rescue requires an application to be submitted prior to adopting a dog. Once a good match is made, an adoption is scheduled. An adoption fee will be required to help offset the costs associated with providing great care for our rescue dogs. At the time of adoption, if old enough, dogs will be spayed/neutered, updated on vaccinations, given a Heartworm test and will be microchipped. The adoption fees will vary depending on the age of the dog.
