*** FOSTER HOMES NEEDED ***

MSRH Team & Friends – – we are in desperate need of foster homes (and forever homes too!) for our little family members.  Abandoned dogs are coming to us in record numbers! Please, if you can help us – even for just a week or two – visit our “Volunteer!” page from the left hand menu inside the site to see how you can become a foster.  If you decide to foster, there is a Foster Agreement” form on the left hand menu inside the site.  If you cannot foster, but would like to help us with our $4,000 per month boarding cost, please consider donating to MSRH.  Click “Donate!” from either our home page or from the left hand menu inside the site.  Thank You and God Bless You!

“Snips and snails and puppy dogs tails! That’s what little boys are made of.” What?? That doesn’t sound right . .that is rude . . . excuse me…who would write such a poem??” I bet it was those silly cats! My name is Calvin and I’m a white male miniature schnauzer. I am five years old and weight fourteen pounds. I have cropped ears and a docked tail. When rescued the vet said I had a bladder stone, but MSRH took care of all that. Now I just need to remember to drink plenty of water and eat good food. I am happy to report that I have earned my house training certificate and know how to use he doggy door. I know about the crate, but I’m not particularly fond of it. I play well with others and would be fine in a house with other doggy buddies or as your only pup! I am well mannered and want to be in the middle of all activities. What are you up to now?If you are interested in a wagging tail (even though it’s docked) and a friendly woof then ask for me Calvin, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Sweet and Sassy; that’s me . . .Della! I’m a female, Salt and Pepper Miniature Schnauzer. I am three years old and weight a whole eight pounds. The joke around here is that my ears alone are about a pound. SMH! <That means I’m “Shaking my Head”> I have natural ears and a docked tail. My foster reports, that I am a sweet girl who gets along with other canine friends. I will be fine as your only one or be good going to a full house. I am happy to report that I have earned my house training certificate and know how to use the doggy door. I’m also crate trained. I get a little nervous when I initially meet new people. I was found as a stray and the streets are tough on someone so small. Will you show me praise to build my confidence? Will you show me tenderness to build my bonding skills? I promise when we make that connection I will be your best friend. Best friends are good listeners and are happy to see you. I can do that! Ask for Sweet and Sassy Della, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Money can’t buy happiness. Love is free! Of course, if you have a little spare cash to spend on doggy treats, that would be an added bonus! I’m Ava and I’m a female, black Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. I’m about two and a half years old and weigh 15 pounds. I’m a sweet girl, but am shy upon first meeting. I have a calm demeanor and think would do well around children. I’m great around four legged friends. Even cats! I’ve earned my house training certificate with honors! I am crate trained but, my foster reported that they haven’t had much use for it since I’m a well behaved young lady. I’m not much of a barker so would be great in an apartment environment. I need some additional training with the leash. I just get so excited and want to pull you like I’m pulling a sleigh! “Mush” Mush” I’m great being groomed and bathed. Do you have a little time for me to warm up to you and live happily ever after? Then ask for me, Ava on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Hi there . ..you! Yes, you! Are you looking for a new best friend? Are you looking for someone loyal, obedient and someone who will be there for you no matter what? Then look no further. . .My name is Jojo. I am a Miniature Schnauzer/Chihuahua mix. Yes, I’ve got the best of both worlds. I am almost two years old and weigh eleven pounds. I have natural ears and a natural tail. My tail likes to curl up over my back. I bet that is the Chihuahua in me. I haven’t been tested around small children but older children (8 and over) are my best buds. I get along with other dogs so will be fine as an addition to your pack or as your one and only. My foster reports that I am active, curious and cute as a button! I follow her from room to room and I especially like it when she sits down so we can cuddle. Although I don’t like it, I know what “NO” means. OK, I will sit and pout until my cuteness changes your mind! I have earned my house training certificate and know how to use the doggie door. My foster family reports that I know how to use the leash. Ask for your new best friend, JoJo on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

“Don’t know when I’ve been so blue, Don’t know what’s come over you, You’ve found someone new and don’t it make my brown eyes blue!” Hello Gorgeous! The name is Tawny. I’m a chocolate colored female Miniature Schnauzer. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I am eighteen months old and weigh sixteen pounds. I’m a sweet lady who gets along with everyone. There isn’t anyone I meet that I don’t immediately fall head over heels for. I can go home to a full house or it can be just me and you. Hey, I’m flexible. I love having fun running in the backyard, chasing other doggies but can settle down and make it a quiet evening. I am crate trained but prefer to be hanging out with you, by your desk, on the couch giving you kisses . . .oh let’s go to the kitchen and cook something! My foster family reports that I have earned my house training certificate. Don’t make my brown eyes blue and ask for me, Tawny on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

“I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps “Oh look at that!” Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again… and they won’t be able to forget me- ever.” My name is Wrangler and just like that shooting star I’m a male Merle Miniature Schnauzer. I’m about three years old and weigh twenty one pounds. My foster family states that I could lose a few lbs. so that means no extra treats for me. <Sad Face> My ears are cropped and my tail is docked. Losing your only home and family can be tough on one’s self esteem so I am looking for my second chance. I want a family, who will be patient while I overcome my shyness and build my confidence. I haven’t been tested around children so I should probably go to a home with older children. I spend my time playing with toys. I know commands like “Sit”, “Stay” and “Come”. I do well being bathe and groomed. I get really excited when you show me the leash. That means we are going for a walk and we can really bond during that time. I love walks so much that that I know how to behave while out on one. I am proud to report that I have earned my house training certificate and know how to use the doggy door. I get along great with other four legged friends so I can go to a home with or without other dogs. Are you interested in a long term relationship filled with love? Then ask for me Wrangler on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

He’d fly through the air with the greatest of ease, that daring young man on the flying trapeze.” I’ve been told that I am agile, an entertainer, athletic and a perfect showman. My name is Austin. I’m a male, black and brindle Miniature Schnauzer mix. I have natural ears and a natural tail. I’m three years old and weigh eighteen pounds. I’m an energetic boy who loves romping in the yard. I love playing with my toys. I enjoy belly rubs in the morning and cuddle time in the evening. I am the perfect candidate for agility training, hunting squirrels, patrolling your back yard, a canoeing partner, hiking buddy or even as an addition to your jogging group! I want to earn my keep and make you proud! I would prefer a home with older children. I want them to teach and direct me too. I would do best with a non-alpha playmate. Those guys like to take all the credit! I want to be the one in the center ring. I behave around cats. I’m quiet in my crate and have earned my house training certificate. Do you want to fly through the air. .on my flying trapeze, then ask for me Austin on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350
