|On a walk through the woods this weekend. Zoey is very athletic and loves to go on walks.|
Zoey is an AKC Miniature Schnauzer, She has a super friendly disposition and loves everyone she meets. She is also super smart and picks up on training very quickly. I call her my clown, because she makes me laugh. She will grab a toy and shake it in front of one of the other dogs to make them chase her. Then she will leap over top of them....she is that spritely. We absolutely love her. I am so excited to see the wonderful Schnoodle puppies that she produces.
Here is Zoey when I first brought her home last May....

In the summer I enrolled Zoey in Puppy Kindergarten. I already knew how to train her in the basic commands, but I wanted to give her the opportunity to learn the commands around new people, new dogs, and in a new environment. All those things are super important for puppy socialization. Zoey passed her Kindergarten class with flying colors. The trainer encouraged me to show her, since she had such a beautiful form and stance. But what was even more encouraging was that she recommended I continue with Therapy Dog training. She said that Zoey had what it takes to be a Therapy dog, wiht her wonderful loving and laid back disposition. I knew Zoey would be perfect for Therapy work. But it was great to hear it from an experienced trainer who teaches therapy dogs regularly.

Zoey looks very much like Misty...most people cannot tell them apart. They are a similar size and both a pure white. Zoey does look a little different....I am sure you can see it in their faces. They also have very different personalities....all my Schnauzers do.. But they all share the wonderful loving sweet disposition.
