Getting ready to bring home rescued Schnauzer

by Renee
(Omaham NE)

I have never owned a Schnauzer and just adopted one from a rescue organization.
He is 3 years old and adorable of course! He is VERY shy and timid. They think he was kept in a cage for most of his life when they found him as a stray.
He also doesn't play with toys or like treats. Do you have any tips on how to acclimate him to his new surroundings when he gets here and any ideas on getting him to like toys??

Thank you
Excited new Schnauzer owner!

We also have just adopted a rescue Schnauzer who was anxious and didn't play. He has really changed and now iniates play not so much with his toys(even that kid of play is starting) but in other ways both inside and outside. Believe it or not we have only had him 2 weeks and the change in him from all the loving and attention is huge. They are wonderful dogs.
