At ten, Mr. Schroeder is looking for a quiet home with minimal stairs. He struggles with his footing sometimes, so carpeted floors would be best. If you asked him, he would much prefer to be the only dog so he could be the center of your attention, but he does fine with other large, mellow dogs when given proper introductions (small, yappy dogs annoy him). Cats and older children are OK.
Schroeder is in the final stages of recovery from his surgery, but ready to interview potential adopters! If you have lots of love to share and the right home for our distinguished gentleman, let's talk! He is being fostered in Iowa, and his adoption fee is $175.
Please see Schroeder's webpage for additional updates and photos: http://ragom.org/avail.cgi/Available/dog?dog_id=7144.
