Gretchen's Mama

by Jaye
(Jackson, Mississippi USA)

I lost my female mini schnauzer companion of eleven years to complications from canine Cushing's disease. A retiree, I spent years at home with her 24/7 and hours daily caring for her during her illnesses. You can imagine how lost I am without her. While I'll always love and miss her, I want to share my home with and love a rescue schnoodle. I requested to be considered for adopting a one-year-old male schnauzer mix that looks like a schnoodle. However, is there anything I first ought to know about potential differences in caring for a male adult dog instead of a female? I never lived with a little boy dog before. He will be neutered before the adoption takes place. (Not being neutered was probably why he ran away from his home in the first place and got picked up by animal control as a stray.)

Adopting
by: Linda and Max

How dedicated of you, Jaye and sorry you lost your beloved Gretchen.
I am afraid we do not have dogs to adopt, but put people in touch if they contact us. Sorry, we have nobody looking to rehome one in your area. I think it would be a good idea to contact rescue shelters for schnauzers or doodles in your area, just Google Doodle or Schnauzer Rescue.
If you adopt the dog will have been neutered, so although they may urinate more often on a walk to leave their mark outdoors, there should be no specific problems.
Good luck
