Jackson's Story...
Tippy / Jackson / Minto are all from the same home. Their owner passed away and they are now looking for loving homes. They are all used to other dogs and cats. Tippy is a female and 12 years old. Minto is a male and 9 years old. Jackson is a male and 10 years old. Jackson is described by his foster Mom as just SO loveable. He acts younger than his age. He enjoys running around in the enclosed yard and exploring or just hanging and following his foster Mom around.. He is a good listener and will go into his crate at bedtime. He is being fostered with his brother Minto with whom he is described as being adorable but they do not need to be placed together.Jackson is looking for a loving home to spend the rest of his days. Please help Jackson find his forever home to live out his golden years.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jackson, a Sparta 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 Sparta, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Sparta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sparta 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 Sparta 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 Sparta paves the way for another one to be saved.
