Cedric, A Scottie/Schnauzer Mix

Cedric came into NY/NJ Scottie Rescue from a busy New York City shelter. This Scottie/Schnauzer mix is about eight years old and weighs twenty pounds. He has no apparent health issues except for kennel cough, which is common with dogs that are pulled from shelters and for which he is being treated. Erica, from the rescue, has scheduled a vet visit to have blood work run, tests for worms and lyme disease, and vaccinations, because, when animal control took him from the owner who could no longer care for him, there were no health or vet records to pass on to the rescue.


Cedric was very unkempt and his coat was very matted when he came into the shelter, so they had no choice but to completely shave him. When rescue pulled him from the shelter, he was put on a fourteen-day quarantine by his foster mom to avoid spreading the kennel cough to other dogs in foster. His quarantine is now over, he has been to the vet, his coat is growing in, and he will be ready for adoption soon.

Erica says that Cedric is laid back and well-mannered, though he may need a bit of reinforcement in housebreaking. He is shy but friendly once he gets to know a person, and he is not a needy dog.

Cedric is a nice, easy dog looking for his forever home with his own person. He does not need a fenced-in yard if he is walked regularly. He is good with other dogs as long as they are gentle and not aggressive, but he would also do well as an only dog. It is unknown how he would be with children or cats.

This sweet boy would be a good companion for an older person or couple. He needs someone who is home at least part of the day or could come home to take him out on a regular schedule.animal rescue

Most rescues, like Scottie Rescue of Greater NY/NJ, take in dogs that are in need of vet care which, as we all know, can be expensive. Rescues need support and donations to do their work. When you are planning your holiday gift list, please think about making a generous donation to your favorite rescue, so they can continue to save and care for dogs like Cedric.
