The Giant Schnauzer ( Riesenschnauzer)

we are getting a puppy.

She is a pedigree giant Schnauzer. Her name is Amelia Lucy. Amelia is her given pedigree name. We will call her Lucy. She is only two weeks old and lives near Prag in the Czech Republic. We will go pick her up when she is 4 months old. In the mean time she is bonding with her mom and getting good training. Her parents are both European dog champions. She has been breed for good character and temperament. I will train her to be a service dog for Jessica. Lucy needs to be walked. She should be a good fitness trainer for me. They live longer than most large dogs. God willing we will have her between 12 and 14 years. Mickey was almost 14 when he died. He was a standard Schnauzer. Mickey was taken too early from his mother and not socialized well. We got him from a truck driver when he was 6 months old. We think Mickey came from a puppy mill. His character was not stable, but we did love him. He was very loyal to our direct family. There were parts of Mickey’s character we did not like, but parts of his character we loved. I guess that is why we wanted a bigger, calmer version of Mickey. Lucy will be a giant Mickey.
