*** 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 $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!

Ledger

Turkey in the oven, family gathering in the living room, kids outside playing and jumping on leaves, me running with them or nuzzled on grandma’s lap. That is what I want . . .a home for the Holidays. Hi there, my name is Ledger. I’m a male, white Miniature Schnauzer. I am seven years old and weigh twenty four pounds. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I love going to the dog park and will be fine around other dogs and strangers. I can go to a home with other canine companions or as your only one. I am crate trained and my foster family is evaluating my house training. I do well getting bathed and during grooming sessions. Those are valuable bonding moments. A little more on my back please! My favorite past time is playing with you, playing with toys or playing with other canine friends. The holiday’s are just around the corner so ask for me, Ledger on your MSRH adoption applicaton. Fee: $350

Blaze

Best friends are always happy to see you and are great listeners. They are always there to lend a shoulder to cry on. Whether jogging partners or worthy sporting opponents, they spring to your defense whenever needed. Best friends are loyal, steadfast and true. And they always know how to make you laugh! While it may take years to find a new human best friend, your new canine best friend awaits you! That describes me perfectly! My name is Blaze. I am a male, Salt and Pepper Miniature Schnauzer. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I am five years old and weigh thirty one pounds. I grew up in a loving home, but was surrendered. No worries, my former family knew that MSRH would not rest until they found me the best home for me. Not many of us get this wonderful second chance. I am fine being bathed and groomed. I know many commands like “Sit”, “Stay”, “Lay”, and “Get in”. Get in comes in handy when you want me to go into my crate. I am happy to report that I earned my house training certificate long ago. I will be fine around children. I get along fine with other canine companions except during the first impression, when we like to discuss our hierarchy. Once we have that set, we are best buds. So are you looking for a best bud, a running buddy or just want someone loyal and who will always be there for you? Ask for me Blaze on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

 

Drew Alan

My name is Drew Alan. I am a male Salt and Pepper Miniature Schnauzer. I am approximately one and a half years old and weigh fourteen pounds. I have natural ears and a natural tail. I get along great with other canine friends, so would be fine as an addition or your only one. I’m fine around cats. I actually walk right by them. I have not been tested around children, but thanks to my mellow demeanor and loving personality I should do fine. I am also very playful and energetic, as a young pup should be. I am crate trained and working hard to earn my house training certificate. I love my baths. I love them so much you may get a little wet. Remember face and nose last, that usually delay the water shakes. I walk well on a leash. I’ve revealed so much about me, how about you . . Do you like having fun? Can I join you? Ask for me, Drew Alan on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Zeek

Zeek 2  Zeek

My name is Zeek. I’m a male, Salt and Pepper miniature Schnauzer. I am four years old and weigh eighteen pounds. I’m so smart, as I know all kinds of commands like “Sit”, “Stay”, “Shake”, “Dance”, “Roll Over”, “Speak”. Yes, that’s right . . Dance! I like to entertain. I will do all kinds of tricks for food and treats. I have earned my house training certificate and am crate trained. I will go in there if you leave the door open. I can sleep in there or in your big comfy warm bed. Do you like taking road trips? Well I’m your guy ..I know how to be quiet and a great passenger. Let’s take a drive to Big Bend! I don’t play much with toys or other canine companions. Don’t get me wrong I’m fine with other dogs . .you just will not find me chasing, playing tug or wrestling. Maybe I wasn’t taught to play with toys or other canine friends. . .  There was abuse in my past and I don’t respond well to aggressive correction. Will you give me time to reestablish trust, learn your rules and boundaries; maybe a treat or two? :) I need a leader, so I should probably go to a home where there are older children who have been around dogs and know how to lead them. Do you want to travel, then ask for me, Zeek on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Betsey

“The important thing is to realize that everyone is capable of telling a story. It doesn’t matter where you were born or how we grew up” My name is Betsey and I could tell a story or two myself! I’m a female, Salt and Pepper Miniature Schnauzer. I’m about six years old and weigh thirteen pounds. I have natural ears and a natural tail. Prior to being rescued by MSRH I was dealing with injuries. Out on the streets you are not really protected by loved ones. I was attacked by a very large dog. Instead of focusing on the hurt and pain, I am going to tell you about our happily ever after in our new home. I play well with other dogs. That incident did not hurt my spirit and trust of other canines. I love everyone. I am crate trained and happy to say that I have earned my house training certificate. I even ride well in the car. I don’t bark a lot and should do well in an apartment setting. Shall we spend some time together and then write a story about our happily ever after? It sure sounds great to me! Ask for me, Betsey, on your MSRH adoption application. Adoption Fee: $350

“Snips and snails and puppy dogs tails! That’s what little boys are made of.” What?? That doesn’t sound right . .that is rude . . . excuse me…who would write such a poem??” I bet it was those silly cats! My name is Calvin and I’m a white male miniature schnauzer. I am five years old and weight fourteen pounds. I have cropped ears and a docked tail. When rescued the vet said I had a bladder stone, but MSRH took care of all that. Now I just need to remember to drink plenty of water and eat good food. I am happy to report that I have earned my house training certificate and know how to use he doggy door. I know about the crate, but I’m not particularly fond of it. I play well with others and would be fine in a house with other doggy buddies or as your only pup! I am well mannered and want to be in the middle of all activities. What are you up to now?If you are interested in a wagging tail (even though it’s docked) and a friendly woof then ask for me Calvin, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Della

Sweet and Sassy; that’s me . . .Della! I’m a female, Salt and Pepper Miniature Schnauzer. I am three years old and weight a whole eight pounds. The joke around here is that my ears alone are about a pound. SMH! <That means I’m “Shaking my Head”> I have natural ears and a docked tail. My foster reports, that I am a sweet girl who gets along with other canine friends. I will be fine as your only one or be good going to a full house. I am happy to report that I have earned my house training certificate and know how to use the doggy door. I’m also crate trained. I get a little nervous when I initially meet new people. I was found as a stray and the streets are tough on someone so small. Will you show me praise to build my confidence? Will you show me tenderness to build my bonding skills? I promise when we make that connection I will be your best friend. Best friends are good listeners and are happy to see you. I can do that! Ask for Sweet and Sassy Della, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350
