She was only 13.5 lbs and scruffy as heck when the rescue picked her up. She lived with a 90-year-old smoker whose family put him in a nursing home and turned pup in because no one wanted her. She had just turned 5 years old.
Although she was at the upper range of the age we wanted — Her ears sold me. 🙂 Both Eric and I emailed each other about her at nearly the same time, so we set up an appointment to meet her the following week. She was just about the friendliest schnauzer I’d ever met and we fell in love with her instantly.
Today, Riesling is a healthy and quite active 19 lbs. We are convinced that she is solar powered, as she rises with the morning sun and doesn’t slow down until the sun sets. Thank you, Ries, for making a wonderful addition to our family.
