Wishing and hoping and thinking and praying, planning and dreaming each night of your charms. That won’t get me into your arms. So if you’re looking to find love you can share. All you got to do is hold me and kiss me and love me and show me that you care. Hey friends, my name is Amanda and I have pending adoption. I’m taking care of last minute MSRH business but will update everyone as soon as it is finalized. So until then I’m hoping and wishing and praying, planning and dreaming. 

Madison (being fostered in Dallas)

  Madison 2     Madison 1

Bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun. Hi, I’m Madison and I am a female lightly colored salt and pepper miniature schnauzer mix. I may even have a little Yorkie in me. I’m sixteen months old and weigh eight pounds. I’ve got natural ears and a natural tail. My previous owners surrendered me because they wanted MSRH to find the best home for me. One with an experience puppy owner to provide me guidance. Have you ever heard of puppy energy burn off? You know the kind, a good energy burn off where I can rip around full speed, being silly, clumsy, bouncy and a typical puppy. I just come alive! If an energy burn off comes up when you are at home with me, it can provide you with an excellent opportunity to structure some really fun and educational use of my playtime. It may be just me inviting you to a play session. Oh, I have so much to learn and I’m taking notes. I am crate trained but have not earned my house training certificate. I would do best in a home with other canine siblings. I know that now I’m in a safe place and I will find my new forever home. Ask for me, Madison on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Thor (Available September 6)

 Thor1 Thor
Good day, my name is Thor.  I’m a male salt and pepper mini schnauzer with cropped ears and a docked tail.  I’m about eight years old and I weigh approximately fourteen pounds.  I’m a very sweet and friendly schnauzer gentleman of a certain age.  I ride quietly in the car because nothing beats the quiet moments of unspoken understanding between a dog and his human.  I get along with other dogs. I’m crate trained. My foster mom said I will need a little help with the house training thing. You know us doggies, our goal in life is to please our human.  Thus, I’m sure I’ll pass my training. If you appreciate the calmness and good manners of a mature doggie, I’m your man. Please ask for me, Thor, on your MSRH Application.  Adoption Fee $250.


  Barkley3  Barkley Barkley1

A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty ‘Hi-yo, Silver’- Hi, I’m Barkley and I am a salt and pepper male miniature schnauzer. I am only four years old and weigh about seventeen pounds. I’ve got natural ears and a natural tail. Like Silver the horse I can be your faithful and trusty companion. I ride well in the car, great during meal time and I’m very social at the dog park. I am crate trained, but don’t really care for it.  I would rather be with you at your side and ready for any adventure that awaits us. I am extremely fond of long car rides. See I have an adventurer spirt, just like Silver! So, ask for me Barkley on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350


Mickey - 5     Mickey - 6     Mickey - 4

“I is just what I was;  And am ain’t who I be!  To love the language, you got to be born on the banks of the Mississippi!” I’m not from Mississippi.  Well, maybe I am.  All I know is, I love the South!  Such culture.  Such good family time! I want to be a part of that. I want a home where there’s love like that!  I’m Mickey and I’m a male, black Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m about three years old and I weigh about twenty pounds.  I was given up by my family after they moved into an apartment. No where to run. No where to be free. Yea…I wasn’t too happy with it either. I need a home. A yard. Squirrels to chase.  I want the whole enchilada! I love being with my family and I’m not too interested in other dogs. But it may be that I’m just not exposed to dogs that want to play and have a good time.  I’m all about play and good times!  It may take some getting used to though. Let’s take it slow and see how it goes!  I’ve been around kids but young ones make me a little nervous.  Admittedly, I’m a bit of a stuffed animal bandit.  If it’s stuffed, it’s mine.  That’s really all I need to say about that. I’d like a home with older children or an all-adult home. Young children do not like their stuffed animals taken. I’ve learned that! I’m crate trained and I’m house trained too. I can be the pet you want.  I’m ready! I don’t care where you’re from!  You may not understand everything I say…but you can understand this:  I want to be in your forever home!  Ask for me, Mickey, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee: $250



Hello everyone, my name is Vinnie.  I’m a black male mini schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m four years old and I weigh about fifteen pounds.  Me and my buddy Ralphie were rescued by MSRH at the same time from a kill shelter in Pasadena.  Thanks to MSRH, now we have the chance to live out our natural lives in a loving forever home.  I’m a very sweet boy; a little hyper at times.  Hey, I’m just a pup; of course I’m excitable.  I get along and play well with my doggy friends.  I’m just happy to be part of the pack.  I’m good at being handled and groomed.  I’m a perfect car passenger during those long rides; no backseat driver, no sir.  I like people especially those who like me back.  To top it off, I’m crate trained.  With patience and love, I’m sure I will ace the house training thing too.  Please ask for me Vinnie, on your MSRH application.  Adoption Fee $350.
