Stitch Schnauzer (Miniature) Adult Male
Meet Stitch, a attractive 5 yr old boy weighing in at seventeen pounds. Stitch has been in foster care for approx six weeks during which time he has become a lovable little guy who's favorite spot is on someones lap now that he has learned there are a lot of precious people who mean him no harm. Stitch came from an environment where he had no human contact for twenty days. Stitch came to the rescue after leaving Puerto Rico with his family who then decided they no longer could care for him. Stitch's hind legs are weak and he tends to wobble when he walks but it doesn't keep him from getting around. In fact, walking up stairs and all the physical activity at his foster home seems to have strengthened his hind legs a lot. At times he can manage enough strength and coordination to jump on the couch. His foster mom has some questionabout his hearing as he tend to not respond to noise or vocal sounds. Stitch would do well in a home where he could be an only dog and with a family that can spend a lot of time with him continuing to build his confidence. Older kids over 10 yrs of age would be better for him. Stitch has occasional accidents in house but he is getting a lot better. When coming into foster care Stitch was somewhat food aggressive. Stitch currently shows no more aggression toward food nor his fellow foster dogs. Overall Stitch is a quiet little guy. His new owner will have to help build his confidence assuring him he is safe and loved. Stitch has come a long way and will continue to flourish in a positive environment where he receives a lot of love and trust. Stitch is not a digger but does enjoy the outdoors. A fence of 4ft or higher is recommended. Stitch is neutered, up to date on all his vaccines, micro chipped, heartworm negative, on heartworm preventative, on flea/tick preventative, and had a fecal.
