Adoptable Standard Schnauzer: Chance
Chance is a 5 year old male neutered pepper and salt standard schnauzer. Chance is being fostered through SROMN for the Standard Schnauzer Club of America (SSCA) Rescue. Chance, along with 12 other dogs, was surrendered by their owner in Ohio when he developed dementia and could not properly care for the dogs. Chance has been a kennel dog for several years. When Chance came into the rescue he needed to be shaved down, as his legs were heavily matted with urine and feces. Chance spent his first 3 weeks at a boarding kennel in Pennsylvania. That is when SROMN came into play. We found out that 4 male SS boys needed fosters, and as luck would have it, we had a volunteer who was working in PA. On January 11th, 2019, he drove all 4 boys back to Minnesota.
Chance is a big boy, weighing in at 34 lbs, with lots of room to fill out! Chance was shy when he arrived, but after some one on one time, Chance started to open up. He’s still trying to figure out what toys and chewies are, but he thinks he likes them!
Chance requires a fenced yard.
Chance cannot be placed with children younger than 12 years old. He tolerates children, but as a typical standard schnauzer, he’s prone to herding children.
Chance gets along well with other dogs, and is being fostered with a male lab mix and a female standard schnauzers. Chance does ok with cats.
Chance is so happy! And he just wants to be loved! He loves to cuddle!
Chance will require a fenced yard. He is high energy and would benefit greatly from an obedience class! He would also be an ideal candidate for fun things like Scentwork and Barn Hunt!
Chance is up to date on vaccines and heartworm preventive. Chance is negative for heartworm disease and tick diseases. Chance is otherwise healthy. Chance is a work in progress with house training, with his greatest issue being urinating through his kennel.
Chance does have some separation anxiety when left, and sometimes does not like to be in his kennel. His foster is working hard with him! And he’s showing improvement!
Serious inquiries only for this dog! Chance will REQUIRE a secure fenced yard! He is a flight risk. If he gets outside of a fence, he will be gone.
Ideally, we are looking for homes close to Minneapolis, MN or within a days drive. This is in case something doesn’t work out and he needs to be returned immediately. Homes further away will be considered at the adopters transport expense and based on the family’s SS experience and other qualifications. All transport is at the adopters expense.
These dogs are power houses, intelligent, and require knowledge of the breed.
***All SROMN and SSCA foster dogs live in homes, not shelters.
***Schnauzers are generally high energy dogs, and require a moderate amount of grooming.
