Meet Gracie, a friendly 5 years old Giant Schnauzer mix.
Don’t be fooled by her expression- she actually is very friendly – she’ll greet you with a hug (two paws around your waist).
It’s just that she’s trying to convince you to give her more treats with sheer brainpower.
She already knows sit and is very food motivated, so she would be fun to train, despite her age.
She is a little bigger than most dogs- though not as tall as a Great Dane- but she is very gentle.
For example, she actually likes being brushed,and unlike some dogs, actually holds very still during the brushing.
She is also extremely affectionate and loves to be petted.
She will lean on you, or sit on your lap with top half of her body. Be prepared not to get up for a while, though.
She does love playing with toys and can be energetic, though she doesn’t mind switching that energy into seeking your affections.
The only thing about Gracie is that she most definitely does not get along with other dogs- she’d have to be an only dog.
Gracie would appreciate a home where she can be the center of attention and be pampered.
In return, she’d shower you with lots of love and wonderful companionship.
In addition to her many positive traits, Gracie gives one of the best bed-heads, compete with cowlicks and potential mohawks.
She also gives off some of the goofiest smiles I’ve seen in a dog.
Won’t you give this wonderful girl the loving home she needs?
