ALVIN's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

ALVIN's Story...
SRC does not adopt out its dogs to families with children under ten years of age. This is for the protection of the dogs and for the protection of the children.

ALVIN (SRC#1178) came as near to death as any of the rescues we can think of to date. He was found lying as if he were dead -- totally dehydrated and emaciated on the side of a road during a torrential rainstorm. A few more hours and this precious little pup would have perished in the elements but thankfully a kind and compassionate animal lover saw this little 4 pound lump of fur beside the road and stopped to help. It took some time for him to come around and come around he has! What a personality Alvin has!! He loves life in general and is such a delight to watch as he makes up for lost time playing with the other canines in his foster home. Naturally he needs much more TLC and a good diet to assure that he stays on the right road to good health. Alvin is such a sweetheart that he deserves only the best. We have no idea why he was thrown out like so much garbage when he is such a treasure! SRC is assuring that all his medical needs are met, and his foster home is giving him all the TLC needed. He will be neutered, fully vetted with all vaccinations, deworming, and heart-worm preventative and micro-chipping prior to being released for adoption. His foster parents will also be able to give the adoptive family details about his demeanor too since he will be fully evaluated prior to being released for adoption. Adoption should be allowed by the end of April for this little baby. Thus far we know that he is great with other dogs, that he loves people, men, women and children. Alvin even gets along well with cats so this one's personality is very sweet. He rides very well in a car and is working on both his leash training and his house-breaking. Right now he is doing very well with using puppy pads. Currently Alvin weighs 4 pounds and it is anticipated that when mature he should weigh between 12 - 14 pounds. He has a docked tail and natural ears, and a heart of gold! Should you want to adopt this precious pup, better put in your application soon.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ALVIN, a Lenoir Schnauzer (Miniature) puppy 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) puppy 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.
