  Duke, 9.5 Years Male Mini Schnauzer

Duke is a senior 9 1/2 yr old Miniature Schnauzer. Duke is a rescue not out of neglect or abuse but out of circumstances in a sad situation. Duke has lived a life filled with caring love and was provided with all things in life that any dog could ever hope for. He spent his entire life with the same person until a few months ago when sadly, his owner had to go into a nursing home facility. The owner's family boarded him and finally relinquished his guardianship to the clinic where he was being boarded. A Save A Dog volunteer foster parent works at the clinic and has cared for Duke. Duke is a quiet easy little dog, he is playful, gets along very well with other dogs and cats. He is totally housebroken. He likes a thick soft doggie bed with a blanket. A fenced yard would be recommended as he loves to spend ample time outdoors. He enjoys going for long walks and exploring and does very well on a leash. Duke minds very well, he likes to be close to people. He is on no meds, has had a recent dental, a healthy boy. Duke would be best in a quiet home where someone would be home with him during the day. He is both house trained and crate trained. Please note: Duke was not accustomed to being picked up. If you put your arm under both front legs & on his chest and a hand on his butt, lift gently he accepts that very nicely. I am sure that because his owner was an elderly person he was not picked up unless absolutely necessary. He will be available 8/16/14. No Phone Calls Please.
