*** 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 food, and pharmacy costs, 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!

Ellis

Howdy, I’m Ellis and I’m a male Silver and white miniature schnauzer. I have natural ears and a natural tail. I am only 8 months old and weigh eighteen pounds. I am happy to report that I have earned my house training certificate and even know how to use the doggie door. I get along fine with both children and canine friends so will do fine in any home environment. Even though I’m merely a puppy I am a mellow fellow. I am very lovable, sweet and a wonderful companion. Be careful with that front door though. If you leave it open I will run right out and when you begin to chase me I assume we are playing. I little boundary training and a few “no’s” will teach me that you don’t want me to dart right out the front door. Are you looking for a sweet and loveable guy? Then ask for me, Ellis on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Hello there, my name is Maggie and I’m a female salt and pepper miniature schnauzer. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I am one and a half years old and weigh twenty two pounds. I’m a very smart girl and can impress you with all my talents. I know how to “Sit”, “Lay”, “Out”, and “Get the Ball”. I want to learn other tricks, so will you teach me? I am crate trained and happy to report that I have earned my house training certificate. I am an active girl, who loves to play fetch with my tennis ball and other games. I like to rough house with my stuffed toys. I can’t help it! I am curious to know what is inside. I behave at the groomers but don’t like when my claws get clipped. I get along great with children and canine friends so will be fine in any home environment. I am curios and if you are not careful will rummage through the bathroom trashcans. Do you want a smart lady who is loving and loves to play? Then ask for me Maggie, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Lulu (being fostered in Austin)

“Monday you can hold your head, Tuesday Wednesday stay in bed, Or Thursday watch the walls instead…It’s Friday I’m in love” My name is Lulu and I’m looking for a new beginning or a second chance. I am a female black and white miniature schnauzer. I am five years old and weigh only fourteen pounds. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I was lucky to leave my past behind me! My past owners only demanded work. They wanted me to work morning , noon and night. I was not cared for, not loved and they did not play with me. MSRH removed me from my previous home and have promised only great things in my future. Now, I require daily eye drops but behave nicely when it’s time for the eye drops; they are also inexpensive. I’m shy at the beginning but my fosters are building my confidence and trust. I am happy to report that I have earned my house training certificate and I am crate trained. I’ve got so much love to give and want love of my very own. I love to be pet and held. I enjoy going on walks and behave nicely on the leash. I am quiet and very calm, so I can go to any home environment. Let’s take a walk around the lake. Let’s snuggle on the couch. It’s Friday and I’m in love, ask for me Lulu, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

“If I were King of the Forest, Not queen, not duke, not prince. My regal robes of the forest, would be satin, not cotton, not chintz. I’d command each thing, be it fish or fowl. With a woof and a woof and a royal growl – woof.” My name is Gillespie! I am a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer. I am one year old and weigh sixteen pounds. I have natural ears and a natural tail. They call me a royal, super and great little boy around here. That’s because I’m so sweet and only want to be loved on. I’ve got a great personality that will melt anyone’s heart. Around my canine friends, I am dominant; you know “King of the Forest!” My foster family is helping me socialize and be neutral with everyone. I’m smart and cooperative and only want to please! That makes me a great student. I am crate trained and have earned my house training certificate. I even know how to use the royal doggie door. I enjoy playing outdoors and going for walks. Are you looking for a loyal companion, social butterfly or a best friend with a great personality? Then ask for me Gillespie on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Ava

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

“If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea, I’ll sail the world to find you. If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see, I’ll be the light to guide you.” My name is Toby and you can count  on me! I’m a year and a half years old and I weigh twenty three pounds. I’m what you call a liver colored miniature schnauzer. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I’m in search of an experienced doggie owner. A true pack leader who has the patience to teach, direct and lead me. I want to be your only canine companion. I should go to an all adult home. My house training skills are currently being evaluated, but once I earn my certificate I will let you know. I have a dry eye and will need a few drops a day for the rest of my days. Can I count on you . . .and will you be there? Then ask for me, Toby on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Vicky and Lola

Hi our names are Vicky and Lola. We are sisters and love each other very much. If someone would adopt us both we would be so very happy and our foster mom says we are good girls. We are around one year old and are really sweet. We are not very big weighing in at about 12/13 lbs each. We were very insecure and did not trust anyone when we went to stay with our foster mom but they have spent time helping us with that., we now like a cuddle and love to play with her two miniature schnauzers Cass and Bree. They let us share their toys and we have lovely treats like strawberries and carrots, delicious. We really enjoy our food. We are clean in the house and go outside to do whatever we need to. Our foster mom has even let us sleep in our beds in their bedroom because we are so good. We have not been on the leash much at the moment but know it is imminent, watch this space! If someone will adopt us together the adoption fee is $800 (which is a discount of $100)
