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!

“There was something in the air that night, the stars were bright, Alonzo. They were shining there for you and me for liberty, Alonzo.” My name is Alonzo, and I’m a male white miniature schnauzer. I’m three years old and weigh about twenty one pounds. I’ve got natural ears and a natural tail. I’ve earned my house training certificate and I know how to use a doggy door. I get along with other dogs so I could go home as your only best friend or as an addition to your pack. I have not been tested around cats. I’m looking for a special family that will give me patience and time to bond with them.  . .you see life on the streets makes you so independent. You learn to rely on only yourself. MSRH volunteers and my foster stepped right up to build my confidence, give me structure and discipline. They report that I play like a puppy with toys, other dogs and my human. Let’s take a walk, play in the yard or you could give me some of that yummy peanut butter. Ask for me Alonso, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Molly (fostered in Austin)

Molly1     Molly2     Molly

“I believe in looking, like my time on earth is cooking, whether polka dotted, striped or even checked. With some glamour guaranteeing, every fiber of my being is displayed to quite remarkable effect!” My name is Molly. I’m a gorgeous female silver miniature schnauzer. I’m about four years old and weigh twenty pounds. I have natural ears and a docked tail. My foster family has been taking good care of me and my furnishings really show it…long, lush and lustrous. I have earned my house training certificate. Cats and other dogs can get grumpy around me so I should probably go to a home where I’m your only one. I just want you to be proud of me. I mind my manners so I will sleep in my own bed, but if you want we can share your bed. I like playing with toys and can entertain myself easily. If you are looking for a cuddle bug that likes kisses ask for me Molly, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350


Kurt2   Kurt  Kurt

Howdy neighbor, my name is Kurt. I’m a beautiful liver colored male. I’m four years old and weigh fifteen pounds. I have cropped ears and a docked tail. My foster mom reports that I quickly dropped a few pounds I gained while going through heart worm treatment. I’m crate trained and I’ve earned my house training certificate. Crates are okay, but if you invite me, I would most enjoy sharing that big, comfy bed of yours. I like playing with my toys. How bout a game of fetch, keep away or chase? I’m up for it! See!? I can be athletic too! First, let’s take a nap. I’m good around children and have done great around other canine buddies so I can go to a home with or with out other dogs. I do like to take it easy and curl up on the sofa. My foster family has taught me so much, like “Sit” and “Stay”, they are even teaching me how to walk well on a leash! Are you interested in a new best friend, who is sweet, full of personality and loves to cuddle? Ask for me Kurt on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Danny (adoption pending)

 Danny3 Danny IMG_3118

Hello, I’m Danny.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer mix with natural ears and tail.  I’m about six years old and I weigh about sixteen pounds.  I’m a quiet boy and rarely bark;   thus, I can go to an apartment. I also love walks, so I don’t need a yard.  I’m timid and shy with new people, but once I get to know you and trust you, I just bloom.  I will do well in a home with older children who will give me time to get to know them. I’m very good at being handled and groomed and love to have my tummy rubbed.  I’m crate trained and my foster parents have issued me my house training certificate. That’s right! Signed, Sealed and Delivered! If you have the patience to let me get comfortable, I promise you will be rewarded with lots of love and devotion. Everyone says that I’m a sweetheart!  Ask for me, Danny, on your MSRH Adoption Application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

Kindred2 Kindred   Kindred

“I won’t sit back and take this anymore, I am done with that I’ve got one foot out the door and to go back to where I was would just be wrong.. I’m pressing on.” My name is Kindred. I’m a black male mini schnauzer mix with natural ears and tail. I’m about four to five years old and I weigh about sixteen pounds. Just look at my photos; aren’t I an adorable boy? My foster mama said I’m a sweet, mellow and friendly gentleman. I get along with other dogs, so would do well in a home with other canine companions. I’ve been a great boy during baths and grooming. I’m crate trained and have earned my house training certificate. I even know how to use the doggie door. Now that fall is knocking at our doorstep, let me show you how well I walk on the leash! Are you my Kindred spirit? Let’s stroll around the neighborhood and find out. Ask for me Kindred, on your MSRH application. Fee: $350.


  Banjo   Banjo (2)   Banjo (3)

Let’s enjoy the changing of the seasons by sitting on the back porch and soaking in the sun during the day and the cooler temperatures during the early evening! I’m Banjo, a female miniature schnauzer with natural ears and natural tail. I’m two years old and weigh the perfect fifteen pounds. I’m crate trained and working on earning my house training certificate. I also know how to use the doggy door. My foster mom says I’m a really a very happy and sweet girl who could be with another doggie friend or be an only pup. I will tell you a secret; I even like my vet, but don’t tell him that. Us girls need to keep secrets. I love hanging out with my foster brother, we like looking out the front door. We need to keep tabs on the neighborhood squirrels. Make sure they are behaving! I also love cuddling. I will sit and lay my head on your lap while you watch TV, read a good book or just enjoy each other’s company. Ask for me, Banjo on your MSRH adoption application. Fee $450
