I lost my doberman, Grace about three weeks ago. Tonight I picked up a 4 month old 1/2 giant schnauzer puppy. She’s lived outside all her life. The owner used to breed giant schnauzers, and some dog got in with her unspayed female. So far she’s fitting in with my other dogs just fine, and doesn’t seem unduly interested in my cats. She’s asleep beside my chair right now. No accidents yet, but I’ll have housetraining to work on this coming week while I’m on vacation. I got out my old crate, but one of my other dogs promptly climbed in, so I may have to get her a new crate.
As for names, I’m thinking maybe Sophie or Bessie.
Any other suggestions?
