In shelter Dog

Peyton, CO, 80831
Pet name:
#### Did you know that former First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, wrote that she was painfully shy and a total introvert as a young child? Our Eleanor is a 7 year old Mini Schnauzer, and like Mrs. Roosevelt, she is shy. She likes to find a quiet spot and watch what is going on around her. She likes to be around other dogs and enjoys watching them play but has yet to join in. 

Our girl likes to observe the goings on at our rescue. In the play yard she finds a safe corner and enjoys the sun and nice breezes. She is not comfortable with people yet. She doesnt appear to like being touched or picked up but she also doesnt run from people who come to pick her up to go out for a puppy party. She occasionally growls at people she doesnt know when they walk by her kennel. While we cannot predict the future, we are hopeful that like Mrs. Roosevelt, Eleanor will find her voice and join in more of lifes fun activities. For now, she is doing exactly what she should be doing. She is learning that she is safe and loved. 

Eleanor is a beautiful girl who weighs 24 pounds. She would like a nice quiet home where she can continue to learn about feeling safe. She needs a more confident dog around her same size who will let her watch life until she decides to join in exploring the yard and maybe someday, she will play? She has started learning about leashes but she is still a beginner. She needs a 4 foot high fenced yard and a very patient and quiet family. If this sounds like you and your family, please apply to meet Eleanor at We dont expect that she will be a world changer like Mrs. Roosevelt but we do hope she will change the right family for the better. There is a special joy that comes with helping dogs who are fearful and need extra time to settle in. We love her and hope you will too.

Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with young children. Homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as house training and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. Many of our dogs will need fenced yards and a confident dog in the family. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
