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!

“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.

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

Hello, I’m Sky. I’m a female salt and pepper miniature schnauzer mix with natural ears and docked tail. I’m about two and a half years old and I weigh about thirteen pounds. My ethnicity is a bit undefinable; MSRH believes I’m a product of a schnauzer and a mysterious stranger (you know how adventurous schnauzers can be).  I was rescued all the way up from the valley. My foster Mom said I’m attentive, responsive, sweet and very smart, plus loving and lovable! Wow, what an endorsement! I do bark on walks at other dogs, but a little training can fix that.  I just need to know I am safe and not responsible for protecting my human. While I do get along with other dogs, I would prefer to be your only one. I also love going for rides in the car. I’m especially good at ridding your big backyard of any squirrels and can even climb trees to chase them away. Mom has been working with me on my fear of the clippers and I’m becoming more relaxed. On top of that, I’m crate trained and house trained. So, how about it? Ask for me, Sky, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee $350

Hi, I’m Lili. I’m a white female miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. I’m about five years old and I weigh about sixteen pounds. I’m on prescription food to control bladder stones –but it’s not expensive. I’m just a little cuddle bug, loving and laid back. My favorite past times are cuddling in your lap, exploring my surroundings, eating and sleeping. I love my human and can get very vocal if other canine buddies are around, so I should go to a home where I’m your one and only baby. I’m also fine with kids, but when they get noisy so do I. So a quiet home for me to love on you is what I’m looking for. I’m crate trained and house trained and can be left alone without you worrying about me chewing anything! My foster Mom said I would be a dream dog for someone.  What an endorsement. Come and visit me soon. Ask for me, Lili, on your MSRH adoption application. Adoption Fee:  $350

I’m Pia, a young eight year old female black and silver miniature schnauzer, weighing a tiny nine lbs., with a natural tail and ears.   My foster Dad brags that I have the sweetest disposition.  I have to say I really enjoy my foster home  and have been perfect about my house training.   Don’t won’t to ruin a good thing!   Living here is so much better than being in that animal shelter.  I also enjoy our extended walks and my foster mini schnauzer sister is the icing on the cake.   While I haven’t been around small children since being with MSRH, my foster Dad says I should do well.    I do like to explore the world, so please don’t leave a door open as I am off to see where those squirrels are hiding!  Ask for me, Pia, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $250

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
