Meet Gilda - I am a low to no shedding dog!

Gilda is a very happy Schnauzer/Terrier mix rescued from the Devore Animal Shelter and who is approximately 18 months of age. Now that she is out of the shelter and exposed to all life has to offer, she is eager to be a great companion! She is super human-oriented and also loves other dogs. She instantly approaches all people (and dogs) to make friends. From the shelter, Gilda weighed about 16-17 lbs. but should probably be about 19-20 lbs. when fed with some consistency. Gilda has a wire hair coat, which is low to no shedding. Though the low to no shedding aspect is a perk, we hope to find adopters that will read this entire bio and want a dog of her type, in addition to that perk.
Gilda is very puppy-ish in her personality. She is very much a terrier breed type in that she loves to be involved in daily activities and also learn new things to engage her need for mental stimulation. Like most Schnauzer mixes, Gilda would be a great companion for someone who wants to enjoy life and activities, both indoor and outdoor with their dog! She would also be a fine companion for a dog, in need of a friend, who enjoys interactive play, and buddying up together!
Gilda is crate-trained and potty trained (though potty reinforcement is needed in any new environment). Gilda learned the doggie door right away by modeling the other dogs. She loves her food, and eats fast so we feed her from a slow bowl (her slow bowl will go in an adoption) and she really loves her rawhide stick at bedtime. Though Gilda lacks conventional training, she is easy to work with. She has learned to sit for a treat, is figuring out toys, and now chases the ball! She is not destructive, and is relatively quiet. Gilda would benefit from being involved in a basic training class, such as what is offered at Petco or PetSmart. This will help Gilda to learn such things such as “Come,” “Stay,” “Leave it,” etc., and will help teach her better social etiquette. Gilda is blossoming into a fantastic companion for any lucky adopter! She is willing to learn a whole lot more with an adopter who wants to teach her new stuff!
The home we seek for Gilda either has another PLAYFUL, adventurous dog in the home with people who enjoy including their dogs in daily life, OR, as an only dog in the home whereby her people will include her in daily life and frequent structured activities, such as walks, hikes, doggie park, etc., and where she will not be left alone for long, extended hours on a daily basis (no, that does not mean that you have to work from home or that you are retired – if you do not know what I mean by this, please just ask me). Gilda does NOT have separation anxiety, but we believe that she would get bored sitting around all day, every day, as in people who mainly just want a laid back dog or couch potato. Since cats is an unknown, no cats please. Some type of yard is a bonus for Gilda but not necessarily a requirement. Like all dogs adopted from this rescue, Gilda MUST BE primarily an indoor dog with outdoor access for play and potty. Gilda cannot be excluded to the outdoors away from the people, and all dogs must sleep inside the house. Like many young dogs looking for love, Gilda can be attention-seeking and can also get under your feet, but she can also settle. Gilda wants to please her person, so she can modify her behavior with training. Gilda is a great, loving, sweet and warm dog just waiting for her right person or people!
Gilda is spayed, fully vaccinated (including rabies), Front-lined, dewormed, and micro-chipped. She has also had a formal vet check.
