Hi. I have a miniature schnauzer (I think). His name is Pogo. He looks exactly like Ali, the Dog of the Day for May 14, 2002. Is Pogo a type of m. schnauzer that is recognized by the AKC, or is he a mix of some kind? I can't find any information for this type-all I see in my research is the standard crop-eared, crop-tailed AKC types. Is there an official name for this type? Any information regarding this will be greatly appreciated.
By the way, Pogo is from Texas, too. He appeared at my door in Forth Worth one day, starving to death. He was so hungry, he couldn't eat. I had to put bacon grease on the food to get him to eat. He took only a few bites the first day. He had matted fur all over him, along with various burrs and other debris. His tag said he was from Abilene, which is about 100 miles from Forth Worth.
It didn't take him long to realize that he had come to the right house. (The previous owners had moved-their phone was disconnected). I bet they didn't call him thier little puppy pie.
Anyway, thanks for any info you can give.
