Jamison and Jaybee are two miniature Schnauzers looking for their forever home. They are very bonded so must be placed together. In fact, Dalton, their foster dad, says he has never seen two dogs more attached, and he has fostered a lot of dogs for Col. Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue.
Although they were picked up on the street by a shelter, Dalton feels they were once in a home. They know some commands like “Sit,” but they are not fully house trained. This may be because they were on the street and then in the shelter for a long time. Dalton is working on the house training.
Both Jamison and Jaybee walk well on a leash and are very well behaved. Dalton is a teacher, so during the school year, the boys stay in the house alone. When Dalton is home, although they don’t care much about toys, they are always up for a game or an adventure. They don’t need a lot of exercise, but Dalton walks them several times a day.
These two are very sweet. In fact, Dalton says they are the sweetest dogs he’s ever fostered. There are no strangers to these sweeties, and they approach everyone as a friend.
Neither dog has a health problem although Jaybee has a fatty lump. However, the vet has checked it, and says it is nothing to worry about. Both are neutered and up to date on vaccinations. The vet feels they are seven to eight years old.
These two sweeties would do well with a family or a single person. They like attention, but are not wild or needy. They would do well with children who know how to treat dogs. They do not need a fenced-in yard, as long as they have regular walks. Although they are very affectionate with Dalton, he does feel that they are partial to women and may have lived with a woman at one time.
If you are looking for two sweet pups that would make great companions, Jamison and Jaybee may fill the bill.
To learn more about how to support CP, volunteer, become a foster parent, or to make a very welcome financial donation to help dogs like Jamison and Jaybee, go to their website or FB page. They are part of Col. Potter’s Mix-It-Up group of Cairn mixes and non-Cairn rescues, so the adoption fee is considerably less.
Remember, breed rescues like CP with an all-volunteer staff, depend on financial, tax free donations from individuals as well as support for their fundraising activities. You can also use your donation to name a rescued dog to honor a special family member, a friend, or a beloved pet.
