Sidney is a 3-year-old male West Highland Terrier/Schnauzer mix rescued from the Devore Shelter. He is a low shedding dog, and may even be hypoallergenic. He is basically wash and wear, with maybe some brushing now and then and some clipping around his eyes so he can see, but eventually, his coat can get longer so a professional grooming can occur very rarely. Though Sidney is a wire-haired terrier, his coat is quite soft. He is a GREAT size; he is technically a small dog, but has a medium-sized dog feel. He weighs around 21 lbs.
Sidney is a fun, happy, fantastic playful dog that is still waiting for his forever home! Unfortunately, Sidney has had some bad luck finding the right home as he has gone back and forth a bit and why we have had him at the rescue for a while. In one home, the other dog and he were great friends but the cat did not like him. It was a condo, and the adopter was sad to bring Sidney back, but, in her opinion, she felt he should have a yard. In another home, the other dog in the home actually did not want a doggie friend like the owner thought. The adopter said that Sidney was practically perfect in every other way, but she mistook her dog for wanting a playmate. Therefore, we are still looking for that right home where Sidney can have a doggie friend and playmate that actually likes other dogs and wants a friend! We DO feel that a home with another younger active smaller dog is the right home for Sidney.
Sidney rides well in the car and walks well on leash. He is a fairly quiet dog but sometimes barks like any dog. He is crate-trained and potty-trained (however, potty reinforcement is needed in any new environment), is a master at the dog door and non-destructive in the house. He eats his food well, and sleeps quietly in his wire crate at night. He is loving, sweet, and warm, and a Velcro dog, wanting to be near his people. He also has some traits that are inherent to most terriers. He is a more active, fun type that loves to play, run around the yard and explore, chase birds and lizards, but can also lie around the house and chill like any dog.
The home we seek for Sidney has another dog social and welcoming dog who also enjoys playing, but mainly, a dog that likes other dogs and likes Sidney too, as well as people who are not collectively gone for long, extended hours on a daily basis. They do not need to be playing constantly; we just want a dog that would still be considered “playful,” to some degree. Sidney seems to need the play outlet and brain stimulation and companionship of a steady canine pal. Some semblance of a yard is a must. A crate on-hand would be beneficial for Sidney during a transitional phase to a new place).
Sidney is neutered, fully vaccinated (including rabies), Front-lined, dewormed, and micro-chipped.
