Jonathan's Info...

Jonathan's Story...
Jonathan is a 15lb, Schnauzer mix.

We honestly have zero idea what Jonathan's age is. When he was brought to the shelter he was missing all of his teeth and part of his lower jaw. The shelter estimated that he was a senior. We brought Jonathan to CO where he is now in a very loving foster home and it's hard to believe he is actually a senior. He runs up and down the stairs, still instigates play quit frequently, and is just a very happy, healthy guy. We even had a blood test done on him to make sure he was healthy and everything came back PERFECT!

We have no idea how old Jonathan is, or how much longer he has left (could be a year, could be 10 years) but what we do know is that he is the sweetest, happiest, most snuggly dog. The foster has nothing but good things to say about Jonathan. She said he sleeps on her left side and doesn't move or bother her all night. He gets along great with her dogs and loves to play with them. Jonathan is not usually a timid dog and greets all house guests with a wiggly butt and happy dance. Jonathan is completely house trained and listens very well to his foster mom. She says he is super smart and learns very quickly.

We would love for Jonathan to find a forever home. Someone who will love him no matter his age or his goofy look. Without a bottom jaw he seems to always have the cutest smile on his face. We envision Jonathan in a home where he can relax most of the time but also play with a ball or sibling when he gets bored. He would love to spend the majority of the time curled up on the couch next to his forever family. We do believe that Jonathan would be good with kids as long as they know how to handle and older, gentle dog.

Jonathan is a low-non shedding dog so he will need regular grooming appointments, especially as his hair keeps getting thicker.

Our adoption fee for Jonathan is $195.00.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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