My story


Esperanza is an 8 year old miniature schnauzer and terrier mix with a big spirit. Originally a street dog in Quito Ecuador, Esperanza travelled to the US with her current owner after charming her right from the streets of Centro Historic. Weighting in at 18lbs, Esperanza is a small dog who thinks she could take on a cow if anyone would let her. She loves to run, chase, bark, and sleep. Esperanza is dynamic - from long hikes and full day adventures to depressive episodes where you might stay int he house for a week, Es can get down with pretty much any situation as long as she has a walk, some food, and lots of pets & snuggles. She dislikes new people who violate her boundaries too fast (like trying to pick her up too soon or bending down over her to touch her when just meeting) and she absolutely hates skateboards & will bark at them as they ride by on the street. Esperanza has been a great companion for safety to a solo woman in her 20s for many years. Great for someone who gets dogs.
