This canine probably has a shaggy dog story or two to tell and would love to share his life with a new family. He's a schnauzer-mix and has coloring similar to a Yorkie.

While his exact bloodline may be a mystery, it's no secret that he has a lot of love to give.

Schnauzers, a breed created in Germany in the 1400s, are known for their even temperament. This fellow is estimated to be between 1 and 2 years old and weighs approximately 25 pounds.

He will make a wonderful addition to any family and can be rescued and adopted at Newton County Animal Shelter.
