8 year old Enzo is a 90 pound giant schnauzer. This big boy is a lover! He is an active, young-at-heart boy who needs a home with children at least 10 years old and over.

Enzo has lived with 2 other dogs, peacefully. He isn’t always crazy about all other dogs, showing some bias against “wolfish” looking dogs-huskies, malamutes, shepherds, cattle dogs. Because he’s always lived with other dogs, the belief is, he’d be happy in his new home with another friendly dog. Smart introductions and integration is important, as it is with any adoption! Enzo has never lived with a cat.

Though his people do work from home, currently, Enzo has been fine to stay home when the humans leave. He has had the company of the other dogs so he’s not been completely alone. Enzo can manage quite a bit between potty breaks. He will bark when his family returns and in excitement when he’s waiting for his person to throw him something to fetch but aside from those times, he’s not much of a barker. At this time, Enzo can manage stairs with no issues.

Enzo loves to swim go on adventures. His favorite words are “ball” and “swimming”. Described as being “eager to please”, Enzo listens well, keeping eye contact on you and not the treat in your hand. His person tells us he’d be a great dog for agility, nose-work or herding classes because he is very agile and quick. Enzo loves to be active and has high endurance and a high work drive. We think Enzo sounds pretty amazing!

As a puppy Enzo took obedience classes and it sounds as though his people have kept up with that training. He is good on leash; VERY important with a dog this size! This is a dog for someone who is active and wants a companion that would sleep in the bed with them. That’s right, Enzo is used to sleeping in the bed with his humans! He is said to be the best cuddler, he will just melt into you. This gorgeous boy will make addition to the right home.
