Onyx's Story...
Meet Onyx:

Onyx is a 1 year old neutered male Schanuzer-Terrier Mix that Paw Protectors Rescue rescued on his last day alive at a high kill shelter, the shelter made Onyx Rescue Only, which meant no private citizen or adopters would be available for Onyx, his only way out of the shelter was through a rescue group! The high kill shelter has incorrectly labeled Onyx as aggressive which he is not at all, he had a terrible ear infection that had been causing him to act out due to the pain and sitting in a shelter with no medical help or pain medication. Onyx has now been groomed, received the medical treatment he needed for his ear infection, he was a hot mess upon entering the shelter system and our groomer stated that in the 1 year of his life, he had probably never been bathed or cared for, Paw Protectors Rescue has attached as the last picture his shelter photo! What a difference love, compassion, grooming and medical care makes in the lives of these dogs coming out of the shelter system!

Onyx is 1 years old and weighs 11 pounds, he has not had any training as yet and is a blank slate, but he is eager to please and will learn quickly. Good with other dogs, this gentle puppy is initially shy when meeting new people but warms up quickly. Onyx is the quintessential lap dog who will make an exceptional pet for any calm household.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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