I've been wanting a small dog for awhile.A friend of mine has 2 min schnauzers,and I think they are so sweet. I looked on petfinder for 2 weeks,then I found HER. Penelope a 5 year old black min schnauzer. I contacted the shelter,they in turn gave me the email of Penelope's foster home. Georgia contacted me right away. Very nice woman! Sent me more pics of Penelope, she meet me in Terre Haute with Penelope. It was love at first sight!! She is a wonderful member of our family! She fit in right away! Completely house broke, has great manners. Always in my lap. Loves all of our friends and family. puts up with her big brother, our 3 year old boxer Torque, LOL. She is truly a blessing! So I would never hesitate to adopt an adult as opposed to a puppy. so THANK YOU RESCUE ME CLIFFORD! For bringing Penelope home!! GOD BLESS!
