Animal ID: 438438
Birthdate: February 02, 2013 - Adult
Dexter is a handsome 4 year old Schnauzer who is looking for a new residence, as he unfortunately became fearful of the small children in his home and started to nip. Gentle and experienced guardian(s) who live in a quiet home with kids 12+ (or no kids) would be ideal. He has lived with another dog, but can get quite excited around other dogs. We're not sure how he would do with a cat so slow introductions and supervision would be recommended.
Dexter can be shy and fearful of new people and places so he will need positive reinforcement and a patient guardian to help him gain confidence with this. Once comfortable he's got a big personality and will certainly make a loving and loyal companion who is described as being quite cuddly by his previous guardian. He just needs time to adjust and to bond to a new person so patience is important. Dexter has had some obedience training and knows some basic commands. He seems to be a problem solver and strategist, with plenty of energy for adventuring. Dexter may be prone to barking at things (like strangers who come to the house) or odd noises. He is a great conversationalist! With his rather impressive ears we're sure he's as good a listener, too. He loves going for walks and would be an ideal little companion for outings and hikes. Regular exercise is important for this energizer bunny. He may get anxious when left alone and will need to get used to spending time alone slowly a few minutes at a time. He will require regular grooming and the occasional hair cut to keep him looking his best!
