Introduction Rhy was saving for a well bred Giant Schnauzer puppy when she found Nakia on Craiglist. Nakia wasn't the dog she envisioned, but it turns out that she was the dog Rhy needed. Six months later, her sister-mom Ada joined the family. In December of 2023, on less than 18 hours notice we drove across the state to pick up Giovanni. He was supposed to be an emergency foster placement only, but it didn't take long for us to know that he'd found his forever home. Gigi came in January of 2024 after being surrendered at a shelter, pulled by a now defunct rescue and having experienced a failed adoption. I'm not a professional dog trainer or breeder. I'm just a crazy schnauzer mom doing the best she can to help these dogs live their best lives.
