Hello, I’m Charlie Emile.  I’m a male black and silver miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m approximately three years old and I weigh about eleven pounds.  Yes, I can afford to gain a few pounds.  All that time struggling as a stray has taken its toll on me.  Fortunately, a Good Samaritan rescued me and called MSRH.  I’m a friendly boy and I get along with kids and other doggies.  I’m very calm; nothing fazes me much.  After all that I’ve been through, I know that nothing matters much as long as you have a loving family where you belong.  I love to be outside especially now that it’s beautiful springtime in H-town.  My house training credentials are being evaluated now and I just know that I will graduate with an A or maybe B+.  Check out my after pictures.  I was so badly matted, I had to be shaved.  But, now I’m nice and clean.  Hey, I know how to be humble.  Let’s meet soon and get to know each other.  Ask for me Charlie Emile on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

Bonnie Lee

My name is Bonnie Lee.  I’m a female salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about six years old and I weigh about eighteen pounds.  See these sad eyes?  My previous owner dropped me off at a kill shelter because they no longer wanted me.  On top of that, I had to be separated from my two puppies.  Now all I hope for is a warm and loving forever home where I don’t have to experience the heartache of abandonment and loss again.  I’m a very quiet girl.  I tend to be reserved at first but once I get to know you, you will discover my very sweet and friendly disposition.  I get along with other dogs at Almost Home.  I’m also house-trained.  Will you be the new mom or dad to this loving, broken-hearted girl?   Ask for me, Bonnie Lee, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

Randall

Hello, my name is Randall.  I’m a male black and white miniature schnauzer mix (mom must have ventured out with a poodle) with natural ears and tail.  I’m about two years old and I weigh about eighteen pounds.  I’m a super friendly and nice boy and I get along just fine with my doggie friends at Almost Home.  I’m very good while being bathed and groomed.  I recognize any expressions of love especially after a very dark experience of being in a kill shelter.  I’m also a quiet and calm boy.  I’m crate trained and I’m graduating from the house training classes.  I look forward to meeting my forever family soon.  Ask for me, Randall, on your MSRH Adoption Application.  Adoption Fee:  $450

*** Adoption Pending *** Sutton

IMG_1759 IMG_1764 IMG_1767

Hi, I’m Sutton.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m about one year old and I weigh approximately fourteen pounds.  MSRH rescued me from a shelter after I had been out on the street for a while all by my lonesome self.  Aren’t I a cutie pie?  I’m a very sweet and quiet boy.  Well, I don’t believe in unnecessary chatter.  I’m a bit shy and reserved now because so much has happened in my young life.  But I know a loving forever family will get me out of my shell and let me shine.  I’m very good riding in the car.  I get along with other canine companions.  On top of that, I’m crate trained.  With springtime all around us, I look forward to going for a drive to the country with my new mom or dad.   Ask for me, Sutton, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $450

Jennings

My name is Jennings.  I’m a salt and pepper male miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about eight years old and I weigh approximately fifteen pounds.  Aren’t I a handsome boy?  I’ll really be hot once my furnishings grow back in.  I was rescued from a kill shelter; thanks to MSRH now “my future looks so bright I have to wear shades”.  I’m very sweet and easy to handle.  I love to be picked up and cuddled.  I get along great with other dogs.  I’m crate trained and doggy-door trained.  I have plenty of love to give and I’m looking for a new forever home.  Please come and visit me soon.   Ask for me, Jennings, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $250

 

Michael

Hi, I’m Michael.  I’m a white male miniature schnauzer mix with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about two years old and I weigh approximately seventeen pounds.  I certainly can afford to gain a few more pounds; bring on the treats, please.  Being out in the street on my own has certainly taken its toll.  But now I know a new mom or dad will walk in any day, we will fall in love and I will live happily after.  Being a young boy, I have plenty of energy.  I behave very nicely during the grooming sessions because I like looking my best.  I get along well with other dogs.  At The Woodlands meet and greet, I met lots of little toddlers and we got along famously.   I’m crate trained and my house training is being evaluated now; I just know that I will pass the test.  Can’t wait to go home with my new forever family.     Ask for me, Michael, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

Marley

IMG_1053     IMG_1051     Marley - 3

“I don’t have a lot, but with me that’s fine;  Whatever I got, well, I know it’s mine!  I don’t go around with the local crowd;  I don’t dig what’s in so I guess I’m out.  The boat that I row won’t cross no ocean;  The boat that I row won’t get me there soon.  But I got the love and if you got the notion;  The boat that I row’s big enough for two!  Just me and you!”  I’d sure like to have a forever home.  I conned the San Antonio shelter into believing I was a Schnauzer.  I thought that might give me a shot with MSRH.  MSRH answered the call and just like that I was half-way home!  I’m sneaky that way!  I’m Marley and I’m a female, salt & pepper something-or-other with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m about three years old and I weigh about twelve pounds.  I’m quite the friendly girl….it’s just part of my natural charm…and I’m quiet and calm.    I’m a little shy when we first meet (I think I’m just afraid I’ll blow my cover).   Because of my shyness, it is probably best that I go to a home with older children.  I am good around cats.   Hey, I like everyone.  I’m crate trained and very quiet when I’m in it and house trained too!   I walk nicely on a leash by your side.  I’m little so I don’t require much, just a lap at my forever home to cuddle with you.  I love to sit with you and be petted.    If you get distracted and stop petting me, I kindly remind you with a ‘tap’ on your hand that you can resume.  I can be your own four-legged friend or go to a home with other dogs.  I get along with every body.  My foster parents have noticed that after a life on the streets as a stray I’m slowly learning from my foster brothers how to play like other dogs like to play and guard the house from those pesky squirrels and anything else we think needs to keep away.    If you’re not particular about whether or not I’m a Schnauzer, I will make as good a pet as any that are out there!  I’ve done my part. I’m here!  I’m waiting!  Now I just need someone to do their part.  Ask for me, Marley, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $250

Austin

IMG_1692 IMG_1693  Image 4

I’m Austin and I’m a male, black, Miniature Schnauzer mix with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m about two years old and I weigh about eighteen pounds.   My foster mom says I’m a super sweet boy and affectionate.  I’m also energetic, athletic and agile.  I just completed a month of training at Club Canine in the Thinking Dog System.  I’m very intelligent and quickly learned to focus on my human, to wait quietly by your side, to ignore other distractions and to focus on you!   In order for me to continue my development, my new owner needs to continue with my training.   I would LOVE someone who likes agility or obedience.  I love working.     I’m crate and house trained.  What’s not to love about a well mannered dog?  Ask for me, Austin, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

 

Sky

IMG_1453 IMG_1454 IMG_1455

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 where I recently had puppies (that’s another story).  I’m a very friendly girl who gets along with other four-legged friends at Almost Home.  I’m definitely not an alpha diva.  I may appear a bit shy at first but I will warm up immediately when I smell love or treats.  One thing though, I’m afraid of the clippers – but nothing that an experienced and patient groomer can’t handle.  I should do well with kids because I just have no aggression gene in me.  On top of that, I’m crate trained and my house training certificate is being evaluated.  So, how about it?   Ask for me, Sky, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee $350

Pastel

“I give to you;  And you give to me.  True love, true love!  So on and on, it will always be.  True love, true love!  For you and I have a guardian angel, on high with nothing to do.  But to give to you, and to give to me, love forever true!”  True love doesn’t need an identity.  I know I don’t have much Schnauzer in me…but MSRH couldn’t say ‘no’ to a face that said, ‘I just want to be loved’.  Maybe a special adoption fee – just for me – will entice you to give me a chance!  I’m Pastel and I’m a female Schnauzer mix with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m less than one year old and I weigh twenty-seven pounds.  I’m a very friendly girl and I have loved all the people I get to meet.  I’m also a fan of other four-legged friends.  Young girls like to play!  Boys, you have to catch me for a kiss!  When I’m not running from the boys, I also like to play with toys.  That rhymes.  Nice! Perhaps I’ll be a songwriter….maybe the MSRH webmaster needs a little help!  For a young girl, I’m reasonably calm and quiet. I’m especially quiet in my crate and  I now have my house training certificate.   My foster Mom believes I am part retriever because I LOVE playing in the water and tug-o-war.  She’s says I’m the best foster she has ever had!    I’m having the best time with their two dogs and even the cat.     “For you and I have a guardian angel giving to you and giving to me, love forever true!”  I’m just a young girl looking for a home. I just know it can be true love!  Ask for me, Pastel, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $250
