Meet Gilbert!

Gilbert is approximately 2 years old. He is a neutered black and silver male Miniature Schnauzer weighing 17 pounds. He is current on his shots and is on heart worm preventative.

Gilbert is a wonderful little boy. He is both playful and loving. He does okay on a leash, but loves to run free full speed all around the yard, so a fenced yard is on his wish list. Gilly has not been tested with cats, but he is good with other dogs and would love to have a canine playmate. Gilbert should not go to a home with children who are not yet school age as he has a tendency to nip a little in a playful way. Gilbert is house trained and crate trained. He will sleep in a crate at night, but he would much rather bunk with a human. He is very well mannered in the bed and not a bed hog.

Gilbert is very anxious to get his food at meal times and gets so excited. He plays a little with toys and was very well behaved for his groom. He is also very good about being picked up. Outside he can be a bit of a tease and will sometimes need a little coaxing to come in out of the yard. When the sun is shining, he likes to sit or lie down in the grass sometimes when the other dogs are searching around the yard, but you won't have to worry about hemorrhoid treatment. Gilbert is not an alpha, but he is not shy either and has no trouble speaking up if there is a need for sharing.

Gilly comes when called and is very obedient as a rule. He seems to identify with Gilly more when he is called, but he is catching on to Gilbert too. He is not much of a tail wagger, but he likes to give little kisses on your nose. For a male, he is a gentleman and has good manners.

If you are looking for a sweet, smaller boy who is smart and obedient with lots of love to give, then maybe Gilbert is you guy!
