Alex2Hi schnauzer fans, I’m Awesome Alex and I’m a bit of a mess. First of all, I’m a 6 year old schnauzer mix, and I know many of you will look at me and think – what the heck is that? Well, let me tell you. I am a proud schnauzer/Affenpinscher mix that is a very unique blend of the two breeds. If you like an underbite, I’m your man. If you want a teeny dog (10 lbs.) that loves all dogs and all female humans, I’m the king. If you’re a fella, well, it’s going to take me a while to like you. I’m just being honest. I’ll growl and bark at human dudes at first, but my incredibly fabulous foster dad has shown me some dudes can be nice - but only those that give me lots of treats and work hard to earn my trust. But it can be done.

Besides looking unique, I have a quirk. More about that later, because I don’t want to overwhelm you schnauzer fans with that. Instead, I’m going to overwhelm you with my awesome traits.

Alex6I am truly a gem and would add so much love to your life. I am great with other dogs, and I just met my first kitty a week ago, and let me tell you – I am in love with a feline! She was kind of a scaredy cat, but I could definitely make friends with one. I am crate-trained, potty-trained, and leash-trained. I even ride well in the car! My crate is my safe place – I really love going there when I am feeling nervous, or just to sleep at night. I’m not a big barker, although I will bark if my foster siblings do, and when I see a man, of course. I think I would do well in an apartment or a house, although I really do love running in my foster family’s yard off-leash!

Alex3Now I gotta tell you my quirk –  love to sleep under a bed, where I feel all safe and protected. But don’t try to pull me out!  Just lures me out with treats or waits until I come out on my own, which won’t be long, since I know you want me. I think once I’m in my forever home I'll be more trusting if someone will please, please just give me a chance.

Alex7I know I need to end this, here’s the other good stuff about me. Of course, I’m up to date on vaccines, neutered, healthy and ready to go!!! I need my groom but that is coming, My foster mom describes me as “very lovable, loves to be held, and loves to play with other dogs.” I would do equally wonderfully as an only pup adored by my future mom, or with some siblings I can play with. I don’t really play with toys, so your affection or the affection of my siblings is what I really want!
