Elkie needs a new home

by Diane
(Manchester, UK)

20th Oct 2014
Desperately sad to be asking to rehome our miniature schnauzer Elkie. Unfortunately I am moving abroad to live with my husband after 3 years living apart due to his work being overseas. Our son has now left home to go to University and I can finally join my husband. His work assignments are unpredictable which is why we cannot take Elkie with us.

Elkie is 8 yrs old and is spayed and has all vaccines upto date. She is sprightly and healthy, loves everyone and is harmless but likes to bark...but only on walks....she is an angel at home :)

We would consider someone who is prepared to just foster until November 2015 if need be, although if you fall in love with Elkie and vice versa and we see that she is settled, we would absolutely and most definitely allow her to be permanently rehomed. If fostering were an option, we would cover all food and any vet expenses.

Heartbroken to have to do this...hope there's someone out there for our bundle of joy.

by: AnonymouDianes

Dear Linda and Max and fellow schnauzer lovers,

I just wanted to update that we are no longer looking to foster or rehome Elke....as family and friends have come together to help out whilst I go and visit my husband abroad.

Thank you for everyone's help.....such a fabulous website :)

Fostering Elkie
by: Nova

Hi Diane
Just wondered if you have a foster home organised for Elkie. We have 2 male minis ( 7 1/2 & 1 1/5) and would possibly be interested fostering.

Fostering Elke update
by: Diane

I need to update that I have decided not to rehome Elke as we realised as a family we would miss her far too much. We really just need Elke to be fostered for a year. I would be grateful to anyone who feels they could foster Elke for periods of upto 10 weeks at a time and then return her to us for two weeks and then do 10 weeks again with two weeks break while she's back with me and could do this up until Oct 2015.
I understand this is a very unusual request.
Please email me : dianehenderson3@sky.com if you feel you are able to offer Elke a loving home.
Thank you,
Diane

Loving home waiting for Elkie
by: Babara

Hi!. Whilst looking at the shnauzer rehoming site we came across Elkie. She looks and sounds delightful and you must be heartbroken to have to part, if only for a relatively short time. We would love to offer her a home! We live on a smallholding on the Lleyn Peninsula and have 10 acres of land for her to exercise, and we have lots of beaches nearby.for lovely walks! We look forward to hearing from you Kind regards, Barbara Stacey.
