LAURIE - from puppy mill to loving Schnauzer home
by Maggie O
I recently lost my last Schnauzer - Old man Dean. My oldest daughter decided I was not going to wait long to find a new Schnauzer friend. We contacted a local organization here in Utah P.A.W.S. who had a little female Schnauzer in foster care for some time.
Loreal or "Laurie" as we call her came to us about 10 days ago. She was one of FIFTY purebred dogs left in an Abandoned puppy mill in Lucerne Valley, California. Luckily Laurie was in fair physical shape when confiscated , its obvious she has had litters of puppies. She is 5-7 years old. She has some emotional issues, very shy, skittish, and suspicious of all humans. We have almost no information about her, we don't even know if she was a puppy of a puppy mill momma who was kept to start the next generation of puppies.
It such a honor to have her in my home. She will be loved and adored as long as she lives. She has had a haircut, a microchip, spayed, vaccinations and a new name tag :) Laurie is already starting to warm up and will come up to you without coaxing, she will allow neck rubs and pets briefly. I think its going to awesome.
This is our fourth Schnauzer, one died very young, and two at age 12 plus.
PLEASE RESCUE A DOG - especially a Schnauzer because they are my favorite.
