I know that look you’re giving, like you’ve got something to prove. Cause I have walked for miles and miles in that same pair of shoes. You can never fall too hard, so fast, so far that you can’t get back when you’re lost. Change. Sometimes it’s for the better. And that’s how I feel about finding MSRH and a chance at your loving forever home! I’m Jackie and I’m a male, Black Miniature Schnauzer. I’m three years old and weigh fourteen pounds. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I’m a fairly laid back kind of guy. I love to cuddle and enjoy myself at the dog park, although I only prefer neutral or submissive play pals. I’m open to coaching and training, because I want you to be proud of me! When I began my journey with MSRH I didn’t even know how to walk on a leash, but now my foster mom has helped me master it. More change is coming. She has also taught me to “Sit”. In my past there was abuse and neglect at the hand of a human male and now I’m shy and will growl when a stranger who is male comes up to me and tries to pet me. Will you continue to build my confidence? Will you give strangers treats so that they can give them to me..so that I expect only good things from them? You will be rewarded with a loyal boy, who loves to snuggle. Ask for me, Jackie on your MSRH adoption application. 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 weigh eighteen 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, but try to be dominant. I will be fine going to a home with neutral canine buddies or as your only one. I am well mannered and want to be in the middle of all activities. I’m a sweet, loving boy, who wants your love. 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

Hi there . ..you! Yes, you! Are you looking for a new best friend? Are you looking for someone loyal, obedient and someone who will be there for you no matter what? Then look no further. . .My name is Jojo. I am a female Miniature Schnauzer/Chihuahua mix. Yes, I’ve got the best of both worlds. I am almost two years old and weigh eleven pounds. I have natural ears and a natural tail. My tail likes to curl up over my back. I bet that is the Chihuahua in me. I haven’t been tested around small children but older children (8 and over) are my best buds. I get along with other dogs so will be fine as an addition to your pack or as your one and only. My foster reports that I am active, curious and cute as a button! I follow her from room to room and I especially like it when she sits down so we can cuddle. I am a one person dog, so don’t rush up to strangers. I need time to warm up to them. Although I don’t like it, I know what “NO” means. OK, I will sit and pout until my cuteness changes your mind! I have earned my house training certificate and know how to use the doggie door. My foster family reports that I know how to use the leash.

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 weigh 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.

Kingston

Kingston PS Kingston Kingston 2

Hello, my name is Kingston.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and tail.  I’m about three years old and I weigh about fifteen pounds.  Due to my past hardships, I’m bit fearful of new people although I like to be petted. Fortunately, I have made great progress with my trainer.  I can now walk nicely on a leash.  I get along well with other dogs and I would do well in a home with at least another canine sibling.  I’m also good with cats!  Plus, I’m completely house and crate trained.  I would be fine with teenage children but younger kids make me nervous.  And get this, I’m a quiet schnauzer.  I hope my new mom or dad will be patient with me in gaining my trust.  But I promise this: When I know I’m loved, I will repay you with all my love and loyalty.  Ask for me, Kingston, on your MSRH Adoption Application.  Adoption Fee:  $350
