Skippy's Story...
Hi, my name is Skippy. Mom says that's synonymous with "high-energy" and "perpetual motion". I'm a Schnauzer but Mom says I act just like a Jack Russell Terrier. Did I mention that I am very good at jumping high too?! Oh sure, I can lay in Mom's lap on my back like a baby and let her scratch my tummy. She seems to enjoy that (and I do too) but the minute my feet hit the floor, ZOOM! - I'm off and running again. I get along well with Mom's Schnoodle and Schnauzer. We wrestle and play and have the best time. Cats are ok too but I've noticed that they don't play right! Always swatting me on the nose with those sharp claws! But I leave them alone and they leave me alone and we get along fine. I don't get along all the time with Mom's bigger dogs though. I want to be the "big dog" but they say no and put me in my place. So I need little friends in my new Forever Home. Well, actually, I need ONE little friend. I get along better that way. I'm four years old but I guess I didn't learn all the manners I needed along the way. Mom's been working on that with me. I don't always ask to go outside to potty either. Mom is also working on that with me. But I have my good points. I'm crate trained and eat in there so there isn't a food fight. I sleep in there too since my potty manners are still a little shaky. I can run like the wind so if my new Mom or Dad wanted to go jogging, that would be swell. I'm a great companion and enjoy being the center of attention. How about a home with YOU? It would sure liven up your life.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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