Baxter's Story...
Baxter is a big, handsome, energetic young fellow, with a glossy black coat and big brown eyes. He is well mannered, house and crate trained, and knows a number of commands. Baxter was turned in by his owner who has very young children, a situation that Baxter did not adjust to very well. He will need to be in a home with adults and mature children, a fenced in yard, and plenty of daily exercise. He has been getting training on issues related to being possessive of bones, etc., and his adopter will need to be prepared to keep it up. Baxter may do best as the only dog, although he is fine with other dogs when no food or toys are involved. He will make the right adopter an excellent pet--with schnauzer intelligence, curiosity, and loyalty. Are you the right fit for Mr. Baxter?

Baxter weighs 69 lbs, is black in color, and 11 months young. Email for his adoption fee, which includes a dental and all of our vetting, below. He is being fostered by Steve and family in Wexford, PA. Not all our dogs are totally house trained at the time of adoption. We crate train them or potty pad train and work on potty skills. When your application is approved, you will speak with the foster Mom and can get more information about how far along the foster dog is in potty and social skills. Dogs learn quickly and most are pretty far along or trained by the time of adoption, however you should always expect some adjustment when moving a dog to a new home.

Baxter has been examined by our vet, has had a 5/1 annual shot, a rabies shot and tag, has been dewormed, heartworm tested and passed, and has been spayed or neutered before adoption. Our rescues are on flea/tick and heartworm monthly preventatives in season. We also do a dental if our vet deems it necessary, which is included in our adoption fee. Our adoption fee covers all vetting expenses and a small donation to cover the dogs' food and care.

We send your new dog home with a copy of all vet paperwork, adoption papers, a small bag of the dog food they have been eating and information on taking care of the dog. Also included is a health folder for your vet and notes from our foster mom on the dog's schedule, habits and socialization skills. We do not require a fenced yard on all of our dogs, it is on a as needed basis. HOWEVER if you don't have a fenced yard we do require you to purchase an exercise pen (>$60 on internet) so that the dog can be safe when outside; SMALL DOGS CAN NOT BE TIED OUT.

We adopt our rescue dogs to adopters in Ohio and some other states within driving distance of the foster family. We do NOT ship our dogs--the adoptive parents must meet the dog at the foster mother's home. This will give the adoptive family a chance to meet the dog before they adopt it. Our dogs are fostered in NE Ohio and surrounding areas. Please make sure you are willing to drive to pick up the dog within 2 weeks of being approved, and check the distance to the foster home per the location above.

Please visit our website to learn more about our adoption procedures and policies. From there you can also submit an adoption application, meet our volunteers and benefit from the 9+ years of rescue experience of our all-volunteer, non-profit rescue!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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