Mario's Happy Tail....
New Homes for the Brothers - One Year Apart
Mario was released to Miniature Schnauzer Rescue in June, 2013. Mario's original owners had Mario and brother, Winston, since they were six weeks old. Mario ended up being their son's dog, however, he was now a full-time student, and did not have the time to devote to him. He moved to an apartment complex about a year ago to attend school and Mario needed more room to play. Mario was unable to move back with the parents because they already had another dog, and they were worried about Mario being able to adapt to a new Granddaughter. Mario's brother, Winston, was released to Miniature Schnauzer Rescue a year ago - they look like little white twins.
The Pet Profile for Mario said he is a very sweet dog, but is uncomfortable around other dogs and quick actions. He obeys well, and is a very gentle, loving soul, but needs someone who is patient, calm, loving, and has a big yard in which he can play. Mario is a smart little boy, and knows plenty of commands: Stay, Come, Sit, Roll Over, High Five, Off, Up, and Get your toy. When frightened, Mario will retreat to his crate. And he will stay there until he feels it's safe to come out.
The fluffy white munchkin has his first ride in the pickup
Mario's new owners sent the following update shortly after adopting him:
"Just a quick note to let you know Mario is settling in quite well, although it looks like he might be a "Max" instead of Mario. One of the pictures is of his first ride in the pickup to meet our daughter's family.
Mario wants to be close to Phyllis most of the time. He slept both nights - all night long in his crate, but tried to sleep with Phyllis first! Jumped right up and curled up on her hip, nice and tight. I left the crate closed but unlocked it the second night to see if he tried to get out. About 5:30 he was wandering the house.
Mario and Foster Brother Henry
He has taken a couple of short walks, and one long one - lots of barking at the other dogs. This will be our major effort. Have to just pick him up and move on. Visitors at the door get one or two barks, but then he's fine.
He's a great little guy, and he'll have us trained in no time!! We'll keep you posted. Thanks again!!"

Life is So Cool!
Oh, Boy! Happy Lap!
