Schone is a People Pup! This sweet, mature lady is a social butterfly who is always excited to meet new people when she's cruising around her neighborhood. She walks right up to strangers, tail wagging. At home, she'll sleep next to her foster mom's desk or cuddle on the couch, always wanting to be with her person.

Schone is easygoing and fully house-trained. She makes few demands other than letting you know when she needs to go outside. She walks well on her leash and is quiet and well-behaved when left alone at home, so no crate required!

Though she's easy to care for, Schone has been diagnosed with Cushing's disease, which is managed with medication. Schone would love a home with older kids, and she's fine with either a house or an apartment. She just wants to be with her people, staying close to them and taking those fun walks. Come meet this sweet lady!
