I was born to a breeder and adopted by an older couple. A year or so later, my human Dad died and my mom had health issues so had no choice but give me up.
She gave me to her daughter and all was fine until one day on a walk, my harness was not fastened tightly and I slipped out of it. Being so young, I started running. A man was able to catch me; but doing so it really scared me and I bit him.
It wasn't a bad bite; but still my Mom did not want to deal with working with me or taking me to a trainer to build my confidence. Instead, she called Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati and surrendered me. I was so sad and scared...she didn't even have a tear in her eye. Now what will happen to me I thought!
I have been in a foster home since my surrender with five other Schnauzers all who took me under their wing from day one.
I am a very protective boy and will bark and react if surprised so my mom is working on that with me along with a trainer.
There was one other bite incident I had a few months ago when a repairman came into the house without my knowledge and I did bite him; but again not badly.
I am really a good boy otherwise in the home. I never mark, know basic commands, love other fosters that come and go.
My ideal forever home would be a quiet one with no children, a physical fenced yard and most of all...an owner willing to continue my positive reinforcement training that my foster mom and dad are currently working with me on.
I have no health issues, have been neutered since a pup and am micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $300 which is not much for the lifetime of love I have to share with the right home. Thanks, Max
