Miniature Schnauzer Lil Shank
I worked at a dog groomer and a girl I worked with had seven mini schnauzers and I thought they were the coolest little dogs. When I found out she was going to be getting puppies soon, I decided to get one of them.
I waited till they went to get their first shots then chose my handsome little man from his brothers. On Christmas Eve he came home with me to live the good life. Now he goes everywhere with me. He has a stroller, fidorido, and his own special carry on bag for all his essential stuff.
He loves sweet potato and duck treats and his green bouncy squirrel toy. His best friends are his ferret cousins and a cat named Dominik. He's an easy going guy that only seems to be annoyed by having to wait in the car alone.
Shankie will turn 2 years old this coming October! It's gone by so quickly! I was amazed at how easily his training went as a baby and we've now moved onto learning advanced commands. He currently resides with his 3 pit bull siblings and his prissy pomeranian sister.
