Wanting to give a rescue miniature schnauzer the home, love and time it deserves, Brighton 08.03.18

Hello.
So after 6 months of doing our homework, reading books, dogs shows, we have decided we would like to rehome, if possible, a miniature schnauzer. We have absolutely fallen for the breed.
We have always had rescues in the past, a Labrador from Labrador Rescue and a Rottweiler/Alsatian from NCDL.
Our beloved lab Wilson died 2 years ago and we have waited until now, when we feel we are in a good position, to offer a rescue schnauzer a new forever home.

We are a family of 5. My husband, myself, our 16, 15 & 4 year old. My husband has his own business, I am a full time stay at home mum.
Our house is detached, our back gate opens on to the South Downs and the Sea is a 15 minute walk from our front door. We live in Saltdean (about 10 minutes from Brighton) so are able to offer our next doggy plenty of outdoor time in beautiful surroundings.
We have the perfect home, love and time to offer a rescue, however, we have noticed from a lot of the previous rescue places we have registered with, that they will not even consider homes with young children? We have been sensible in waiting, until our son is able to walk without a pram and understand all about dogs and being responsible around them, before looking into adopting for this very reason.
I do understand why, as some dogs, may not be suitable due to how they have been brought up but we are hoping that maybe with our previous experience of rescues, a miniature schnauzer may become available for us to adopt, who would be suitable for our family.
Many Thanks for reading our story

by: Izzy

Hi yes lots of centres will no rehome with children or a resident dog but try these

www.manytearsrescue.org

www.dbarc.org.uk and here is a link to schnauzerfest- walkies and fund raising for schnauzers in need which they support
www.evensi.uk/page/schnauzerfest/10002311036

www.prodogsdirect.org.uk they also looking for foster homes

www.msri.ie

also look at the preloved website as they still able to advertise pets. And I am sure you have tried your local centres?

My two minis are not children friendly as they were not brought up in a home with children or interacted with any though they love other dogs. We always make sure that they are secure if any children are around. Good luck in your search.
