Marco's Story...
Marco is a Schnauzer/Terrier Mix. This young gentleman is handsome, smart, and incredibly sweet. Marco likes going for walks and is friendly with everyone he meets. He likes to stop along the way and say hello to other dogs. He also loves to sit on his foster's deck and be on the lookout for critters. Oh, how the chipmunks love to torment poor Marco! But he still loves to be out there soaking up the sun on a sunny day. Marco's potty trained and knows several commands such as sit, come, and give me paw. But he'll only do them for a treat. We told you he was smart! Please help Marco find the loving home he deserves.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marco, a Sparta Schnauzer (Miniature)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Miniature)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Sparta, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) 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)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Schnauzer (Miniature)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sparta paves the way for another one to be saved.
