Miniature Schnauzer
12 years old
16 lbs

Hi!  I'm Patch...I've had a bit of a rough go of it but am feeling great now and looking for that special home with someone who loves a sweet senior guy.  

I'm 12 y/o, about 16 lbs, neutered, house-trained, microchipped, UTD on vaccines, recently had a dental (12 extractions - yes, life before was a bit difficult), have recovered from multiple bacterial skin infections and looking for that special person to spend the rest of my days with.  I'm not what you'd call an active dog...I do like my naps but when it's time for meals, I do a happy dance you can't believe!  I must admit I do tend to express my opinion on the speed at which meals are prepared but it's because I know what's coming and it's always great!  I'm not a big barker but your home is my castle so I'll let you know when something's afoot and I sound bigger than I am.  

I'm good in the car so take me with you.  I'll need a light weight sweater for the winter months if we go outside. I've been groomed for winter but with my hair, no day is a good-hair-day!   

I'm not used to children so prefer a home without 'em.

Meet Lovely Little Star!

This darling girl has been in foster care a little over a week now and is settling in very nicely.  She was released into rescue because her previous owners purchased her not realizing how busy, busy puppies can be and the requirements needed for training etc.  She is very much a normal busy little girl as can be expected from a puppy of this age and she has much to learn since she was never properly socialized.  She loves, loves people!  She's currently enrolled in housebreaking 101 and is so far getting a B++!  Good girl Star!  She doesn't know any commands other than 'sit' and doesn't realize that means longer than 1.3 seconds!  The 'come' (recall) command is coming, but she's not quite there yet with reliability.  To her that means a not so funny to her foster family, a fun game of 'keep away'!  We are working on that with lots and lots of cookies!  Star is a very loving girl that just needs direction and rules and lives to snuggle with her human as often as possible.  True to Poodle form!  She does use her voice to let her needs be known or to warn of noises we may need to take notice of.
Lovely Star will need a family familiar with the time and work it takes to train a puppy.  She was not exposed to other dogs in her past life and is very shy at first, but gets better with that everyday.  Puppy classes would be great for her to keep learning new things from other dogs!  She loves, loves to play and is truly a delightful puppy!  We are enjoying having her in our home for fostering!  As noted, she will not be placed into a new home with children under the age of 12 yrs old.  Also, until she is reliable with the 'come' command, families with a securely fenced yard will get preference.

Star will bring much joy into the lives of any family lucky enough to adopt her and bring her into their home.  She's a love bug!    Star is being fostered in Sedro Woolley, WA.

Dear darling Darby had a rough start in life but his fortune became much brighter once he made his way into rescue!  He and several other dogs had been living out in a filthy shed and the man in charge of their care was negligent and abusive to them in so many ways.  Along with being dangerously under weight, it was found his blood work was not spot on before we performed his neuter.  Upon these findings we did all of the diagnostics/tests necessary and treated him for an infection until his values returned to normal.  Darby has gained the weight were he should be and is now healthy are ready to go out into his new home.  He is a very shy guy and would benefit from having another dog of similar size in his new life to help him continue to build self confidence.  Taking him to class for socializing and exposure may also be helpful to help him in his new life.  He does prefer his foster mom and bonded very quickly to her and he will need a little more time and patience to help him learn to trust men again.  That will come with positive experiences we would hope.  It was not his fault what happened to him.

 Everyone that has met Darby comments on how super sweet he is considering his past background.  He's just still a bit unsure of himself.  Currently he is learning to walk on a leash so a fenced yard would be best for him at this time.  His beautiful spirit becomes quite evident as he zooms around the yard at warp speed and his old life for the moment is forgotten. This is his new world!!!  He is truly enjoying his new freedom and fortunate jail break from that horrible prison he was living in.  We are so proud of the progress he has made during his stay in foster care.

Darby is a love and just needs to learn to trust again and learn about the world around him.  He gets along great with dogs similar in size as well.  Once he bonds with his new owner he will be a snuggle bug for life!  Need a lap ornament?  This just might be your little man if you are willing to have a little patience with him while he learns the world is a much better place than where he was!

Hellooooooo out there!!!! Is anyone reading the write ups?  Yes??? Oh good, so I can share that Iím looking for a wonderful new life with a very special person or two and youíll take time to see if youíre interested in me? 

Letís see how many questions you can answer ďyesĒ to and weíll go from there? 

Do you understand how it is to love food so much that you have to really exercise will power to maintain good health? Can you help me do that? 

Do you happen to go for walks and would you be willing to take me and let me explore and sniff around? Iíd do the same for you, not that youíd want to sniff around. *wink*

Would you like to see me ďdanceĒ for cookies? Yes? Oh, I forgot, food control. Well, we can handle that, right?

Do you have a cat in residence? Hmmmmm - Iíve tried to play with cats but most of them just run and then I can eat their food. How is it I keep returning to the subject of food? *burp*

Would you like me to bark just enough to alert you to prowlers or strangers and then I will be quiet? Done deal!

Do you happen to have an RV so we could go south for the winter or at least do some traveling together? I can already see myself looking out the windows as we travel along.  But if you donít have an RV, car rides would be just fine. 

So much for the questions. Now the facts, plain and simple. I like belly rubs, raw bones and raw vegetables. Bet you never thought youíd hear that from a dog! I like sleeping on the bed with my human. While Iíve gotten along with the foster dogs that come and go in this foster house, Iím really saying my doggy prayers that I might be able to be an only dog for the rest of my life. Probably my only negative is I get nervous when people reach for my head. Itís a thing in my past but at the same time most dog trainers teach humans that thereís a better way to reach for a dog to pet them than going straight for the head so I think Iím normal. Yup, Iím more normal than most dogs. One last thing, My foster mom has worked hard to find the perfect diet for me to protect me from bladder stones. That is so awesome of her because I feel GREAT! Iím good to go for another decade. Care to join me?

 Here in this House....
I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks of the other dogs 'out
I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake my world will not have changed.

I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat.

I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from the heat.

I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness,

and be allowed to smell all that can reach my nose.

My fur will shine, and never be dirty or matted.

Here in this house...

There will be an effort to communicate with me on my level.

I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand,

I can enjoy the warmth of the words.

I will be given a name so that I may know who I am among many.

My name will be used in joy, and I will love the sound of it!

Here in this house...

I will never be a substitute for anything I am not.

I will never be used to improve peoples' images of themselves.

I will be loved because I am who I am, not someone's idea of who I should

I will never suffer for someone's anger, impatience, or stupidity.

I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved by all.

If I do not learn my lessons well, they will look to my teacher for blame.

Here in this house...

I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch...

knowing that, no matter what they do, they do it for the good of me;

If I am ill, I will be doctored.

If scared, I will be calmed.

If sad, I will be cheered.

No matter what I look like, I will be considered beautiful and thought to be
of value.

I will never be cast out because I am too old, too ill, too unruly, or not
cute enough.

My life is a responsibility, and not an afterthought.

I will learn that humans can almost, sometimes, be as kind and as fair as

Here in this house...

I will belong.*

* I will be home. *
