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


  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

“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.

Look folks, I’m not going to sugarcoat this. I’ve had a rough life. My previous owner didn’t take care of my teeth, so I got a bacterial infection that damaged a heart valve. Now I have to take two daily heart medications. I will repay you with lots of love and cuddle time. I’m eight years young and I think I deserve to live the rest of my life in the kind of home where people love you and take care of you. I’m a great guy. I weight twenty four pounds and I am really sweet. I’m house trained, crate trained, get along with other dogs, and even older kids. By golly, I DO deserve a loving forever home – Yours! Fee: Speak with your adoption counselor.

Todo (pending adoption)

Todo3  Todo2  Todo

Are you in search of a trainable, loyal and energetic companion? Then I’m your guy! The name is Todo. I’m two years old and weigh twelve pounds. I’ve got natural ears and a natural tail. I’m happy to report that I am crate trained, which means I’m one step closer to earning my house training certificate. I aim to please which makes me very trainable. One tap on the crate and I jump in, two means time to go out! I’m so smart! I’ve got some puppy energy so canine companionship or long walks will keep me busy and tire me out. How about going for a hike? Are you looking for your everything? Then ask for me, Todo on your MSRH adoption application. Fee:$450



“But let’s just pretend for a minute that it’s a seed, alright? We’ll just use our imaginations. Do you see our tree? Everything that made that giant tree is already contained inside this tiny little seed. All it needs is some time, a little bit of sunshine and rain, and voilá!” My name is Stuart and I’m a male black miniature schnauzer. I’m four years old and weigh nineteen pounds. I’ve got natural ears and a docked tail. Like the seed I also needed a little water, sunshine and TLC. You see I had a torn ligament in my leg when I was rescued by MSRH. MSRH took care of the surgery and I’m all better. My leg is still a little stiff but with the right family or foster I will be a giant healthy tree in no time. I kid, but I look forward to being all better. Ask for me Stuart in our MSRH adoption application. Fee: $ 350

Money — a puppy!!!

IMG_3264 IMG_3252 IMG_3258

Do you have the energy to keep up with puppy power? My name is Money.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and tail.  I’m only six months old and I weigh ten pounds.  I’m a tiny little tyke, who was thankfully rescued from a kill shelter! I’m so young and have so much to learn. Are you willing to teach me and make me a perfect family companion? I’m a very friendly, bouncy, energetic and sweet boy. I’m searching for an experienced owner and would do really good with other canine companions. You gotta burn this puppy power somehow. I would need older children (12yrs and older), since I’m still learning to be gentle. I’m crate trained and I’m learning the art of house training. Ask for puppy power, Money, on your MSRH Adoption Application. Adoption Fee:  $450.

Maggie Renee (being fostered in Dallas)

 Maggie Renee3 Maggie Renee 5 Maggie Renee 4      

Do you have a lap? Do you have a yard? I’m Maggie Renee, but you can call me Maggie. I’m eight years old and I just love to be in your lap. We can watch TV, or read, or you can talk about sports. I’m a good listener – just no politics, please. I also really enjoy rolling in the grass. Oh, it feels so good on a sunny day. I am a female, salt and dark pepper, with natural ears and a docked tail and I weigh 15 pounds. I am house trained and doggie door trained. I’m really shy and submissive with other dogs. I respect my foster siblings so much. Hey, they own the place and I am not a rude guest. You won’t find me wrestling with them, chasing them or playing tug with them. Did I mention I am a true lady and very human oriented? I’m looking for an all adult home and an experienced owner. I want to know you are in charge. I want you to lead me. I think your lap is just the perfect size, so ask for Maggie, and we’ll seal the deal. Fee $250
