I’m “Hardy” and I’m a male, white Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. I’m less than one year old and I weigh about thirteen pounds. I’m an active guy – my foster mom calls me her ‘wild thing’ but I’m what you expect as a puppy! I really like to play and like my toys and playing tug of war. In the absence of a chew toy, I might just find your slipper! I also enjoy other dogs. I’d like a playmate who’s about my age…the older dogs have trouble keeping up with me! I’m learning to walk on a leash – man, I love walks – and I’m also learning some basic commands. I’m house trained with a doggy door. Mostly house trained anyway! I don’t like the crate….it makes me bark! I’m a little independent right now. I like your lap…but have a tendency to decide for myself when I want to sit in it! Maybe you could put a treat there…then I’m sure to come! Like I said, I’m a puppy. I’m yours to mold as you see fit! I do like to travel and do that a lot with my foster mom. You go, I go! “Just another heart in need of rescue. Waiting on love’s sweet charity!” Bring me your love! Ask for me, Hardy, on your MSRH adoption application! Adoption Fee: $450 which includes all shots, complete vet checks and treatments for any existing problems, spay/neuter, microchipping and registration
