Jolene (fostered in Austin)

 Jolene (1) Jolene (3)  Jolene

“Your smile is like a breath of spring; Your voice is soft like summer rain; And I cannot compete with you, Jolene” Hi-ya! I’m Jolene, but my friends call me Jolene the Cuddle Queen. I’m a female Parti White and Black miniature schnauzer mix. I am 9 months old and weigh fourteen pounds. I have natural ears and a natural tail. I do well with all canine friends, since I love to play! I’m a happy, bouncy and very outgoing. I have not been tested around cats or children. Since I have such a loving and very responsive personality I should do just fine. I like to spend the day playing with my foster brother; we spin, chase and jump. I’ve learned a few commands: “Sit”, “Down” and “Up”! I am open to learning so many more! My crate training and house training skills are being evaluated and reinforced. Special thanks, goes out to my foster family for that. Because, I was found as a stray or left alone in the backyard for long hours I’m a little reluctant to walk outside by myself. My foster family is helping me build trust and confidence and I soon . .I will trust that my human will make sure I am back in the house safe and secure. I do great on a leash since I love going on walks. Are you interested in Jolene the cuddle queen? Then ask for me on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Paisley – fostered in Austin

Paisley Paisley (2) Paisley

Howdy! My name is Paisley and I am a female salt and pepper miniature schnauzer. I have natural ears and a natural tail. I am two years old and weigh sixteen pounds. I have earned my house training certificate and even know how to use the doggie door. I get along well with other dogs and would do great as your only one or as an addition to your family. I do enjoy a good chase, though. Sometimes I taunt my foster siblings with toys and get them to chase me around the dining room table. I walk well on a leash and ride well in the car. I have not been tested around children so I should probably go to an all adult home. I get along fine with cats. My foster mom says I’m sweet and I have a tail that gets going so fast, my behind might wiggle off my body. Do you have a place in your heart and home for me? Then ask for Paisley, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Hayley

Hayley (1) Hayley Hayley (2)

Every twitch of the ears is a question or statement(.) (?) Every wag of the tail is an exclamation! Hello, my name is Hayley and I’m a white female miniature schnauzer. They tell me I may be a schoodle?! That’s so fancy . . I will let you feel my coat and decide for yourself. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I am two years old and weigh thirteen pounds. I am happy to report that I am crate trained, have earned my house training certificate and can use the doggie door. I’m shy with new canine buddies, but soon become the best of friends. I just need a little time to feel comfortable. My foster family describes me as being a very happy dog! I love to play and I have the energy to keep up with everyone! Let’s play fetch or tug of war! I’m game for both if you want! Next let’s go for a walk! I have been tested and have done well with small children. I’ve heard that small children have the energy to keep up with me and I like that! I don’t like baths but if you offer a treat as a reward for being a good girl in the bath . . .I would very much enjoy it. After a day of playing I suggest a little snuggle time on the couch! How about a wiggle and a twitch of the ears just for you? Then ask for me, Hayley on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Gillespie (Adoption Pending)

Gillespie (2) Gillespie (3) Gillespie (1)

“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

Monica

Monica

“Hey, where did we go Days when the rains came? Down in the hollow Playin’ a new game” My name is Monica but you can call me your brown eyed girl! I’m a black female miniature schnauzer. I am only two years old and weigh a svelte twelve pounds. I have natural ears and a natural tail. MSRH has promised me treats so that I can grow into a healthier weight! Bring on the yummy treats! I am crate trained but prefer to be walking around the house behind you. I am happy to report that I have earned my house training certificate and have somewhat figured out the doggie door. Well I know how to come inside but don’t understand going out through it. I get along fine with other dogs and will do nicely in a house as your only one or with a full pack. Do you want to go running and a laughin’? How about skippin’ and a jumping? Then ask for me, Monica on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Judd

Judd (1) Judd Judd (3)

“There’s a time for everyone if they only learn.. That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn. There’s a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors …When the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours!” I’m Judd, a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer. I’m two years old and weigh seventeen pounds. I have natural ears and a natural tail. Can you believe it?? I’ve just been released for adoption. See . .when we are rescued we go through a vetting period. That’s when the vet checks us for all kinds of things! It took me a little longer than most to be released because I was in really bad shape. A few surgeries later, a little time to rest and I’m all better. I don’t place too much pressure on my leg but the vet reports that I’ve healed up nicely. I am crate trained and working hard on earning my house training certificate. I walk great on a leash. I get along great with other dogs, but you won’t find me playing tug or chase. I love walking around in the backyard exploring, laying in the sun or walking the perimeter. Do you have a big back yard? Are you interested in a sweet boy, who loves to cuddle? Ask for me, Judd on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $300
