BRIDGET's Story...
Bridget (SRC#938) and Heidi (SRC#939) are silver female Mini Schnauzer female sisters that have just come to SRC for placement in a loving permanent home because their current owner is no longer physically well enough to keep them. They both are spayed, heartworm negative, up to date on all vaccinations, and micro-chipped.

These two spry ladies wont tell their exact age, but we believe them to be somewhere between 9 and 11 years old. Her are two lovely ladies that have been together all their lives and now wish to find someone who wants to share full days and early bedtimes with them at their side. Affection abounds with these ladies, good crate manners make them easy to leave unattended and makes it cozy for them to sleep at night. They are not mischievous young things, they have manners and grace. They walk well together, bark as a watch dogs yet seem quiet when directed to be still. These gentile southern gals enjoy exercise and do not show any signs of slowing down. Both Heidi and Bridget like to give and receive hugs. Time in their foster home has shown them to adapt easily and learn quickly. As Schnauzers go they are not big talkers, but they do have a request for the ideal home: (1) lots of time with their family (2) to eat regularly and (3) to be walked frequently. Not hard requests to fill at all!

Heidi and Bridget came to SRC due to the ailing health of their loving owner who was going to require an assisted living situation. He really wanted them well provided for first and foremost to ease his worry about their futures. It would be most compassionate if their adoptive family will consent to let this person know on occasion how these precious ladies are doing because they still mean a great deal to their previous owner and it was very important to him that his girls be well provided for.

Heidi and Bridget are very attached to one another and never been separated. Although one might think this is too much of a challenge, it could also be twice the blessing! They are truly sisters and very unique. Both ladies were sad to lose their loving master after so many years together still that sadness actually becomes them both and helps to define their strength of character Heidi is more emotional and even showed that initially thru crying for her owner while Bridgette was more stoic and did not readily show her feelings. As they began to adjust to their foster home, they realized that all was not lost and they perked up! Their foster parents got a double swing leash for walks and this is great for walking these girls in tandem. After their walks, Bridgette and Heidi enjoy simply lying near the feet of their foster parents while they work or watch TV. They have already learned that furniture is off limits and both females are exceptionally well behaved. They sleep very well all night in their crates and are spry and ready for the next morning when breakfast time arrives. Life with Heidi and Bridgette could be so easy and pleasant a home life that everyone in your family could enjoy. Please do not let the fact that there are two minis in need of love and attention keep you from bringing them into your home and heart!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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