Standard Schnauzer needs a new home, Somerset
The National Animal Welfare Centre has a Standard Schnauzer called Ziva looking for a new home.
She is four years old and would suit a quiet house, unfortunately, not one with children. According to the centre, she would make a lovely companion, but is not suitable for a home with cats.
Here is the information on her:
"Ziva is a standard Schnauzer who came to us as she was extremely scared of her owner's baby. Whenever the baby cried Ziva used to try an escape from the house, although she was extremely gentle and affectionate when everything was quiet.
Because of this nervousness we have placed Ziva in a foster home. Her foster carer says that she will make an excellent companion around the house to a quiet person or couple, but she will not be able to live with children or in a busy household as she will find it too stressful.
Ziva can be left for periods of time and behaves well, and is fully house-trained. She does bond very closely to an owner and may become a little protective of them, but it is all noise and is easily overcome.
Ziva may be able to live with a calm and confident dog as she normally gets on well with dogs she meets and seems at first to be comforted by steady older dogs. She would be best not to live with a cat as she will chase."
If you may be able to offer her a suitable home, contact the centre: HEAD OFFICE, Tyler's Way, Watford-By-Pass, WATFORD, Hertfordshire, WD25 8WT
TEL: 020 8950 0177 (0900 to 1700 Monday to Friday)
Schnauzerley wishes and good luck to Ziva,
Linda and Max
