Scooter's Story...
Scooter is a very sweet-tempered male schnauzer. He gets along well with the dogs and cats in his foster home and has been friendly to all of the dogs, adults, and children he has met on his daily walks. He is very gentle with the foster family’s seven-year-old granddaughter who resides in the home. He loves to chase squirrels and bunnies and barks loudly in frustration when they slip away from him through the rungs of the fence. Scooter does not seem to know any basic commands and despite being very treat-oriented he has not shown any desire to learn them. He loves to be around people and wags his tail enthusiastically when his people approach him. He either gives a little schnauzer grumble when he needs to have a potty break or he will give several short barks and run to the door. He is very well-behaved and loves to be petted or to have the area behind his ears scratched. When his toy is thrown across the room he will run after it and fetch it and drop it at her feet waiting for the next throw.

Scooter recently had a dental and did not have to have any teeth extracted so he has all of his pearly-whites. He was also recently neutered.

Note: Scooter was surrendered with another dog, Curly. They came in to rescue together, but have been fostered separately. They are doing well separate and did not act interested in each other when they met again at the vet. So they may be adopted together or separately.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scooter, 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.
