My mother recently passed away peacefully. My mother absolutely adored her 6 year old Schnauzer, D.O.G. They were very close. It has now become my duty to find D.O.G a great new home. D.O.G is a happy dog and well behaved. However, he barks with great excitement when anyone rings the door or enters the home. He does not bite. He is fair around children once excitement wears off. He will not do well being left alone for long periods of time and is not use to being crated. Shot records up to date. Is use to being groomed quarterly.
