Luna to the rescue!

Luna at the door

Luna at the door

We adopted Luna through Miniature Schnauzer Rescue in Oregon. I was not sure I was ready for a new mini schnauzer as we had lost our 10yr old MS Scout 6 months before. Things happen for a reason and I believe Luna had been waiting for me. Her foster home adored her and she them, so Luna met us cautiously but soon warmed up to me and my husband.

When Luna walked in to our house, she sniffed the interior perimeter and I showed her where to find food, water, her bed, and the door to the yard. That was it - she just settled into her bed in the family room - as if she'd lived here all her life. Her first night here I asked "Luna, are you ready to go to bed?" and she ran into our bedroom and onto her bedside pillow bed. I hadn't shown her that room.

Someone had spent time training Luna and she is very polite and well behaved. She waits to be invited onto the couch, before entering the house from the yard, knows how to sit, and sits up or rolls over when asked. She waits as I set down her food and water. Some where in the trip from the shelter to her foster home it was mentioned that she had nipped a groomer and nipped at a child. When we had guests stay here with a 6 year old - he and Luna ran and played together all weekend. After picking Luna up from her first grooming appointment I was told she was a joy to work with and I have no resistance when I brush her.

Luna is my shadow where ever I am in the house, loves to ride in the car and goes with us on most errands. If I leave her at home I'm met at the door with a joyous welcome as she sits up a gives me a big smile (really!). In other words, she's a perfect six year old. I feel so blessed to have her love and trust.

We'll never know how she ended up in a shelter, but I think she was waiting for us and her "forever" home. I think we were both rescued.
