“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.


Jorja2 Jorja1 Jorja

Hello, my name is Jorja.  I’m a female white mini schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about five years old and I weigh approximately thirteen pounds.  I have just been to the beauty salon when these pictures were taken.  Don’t I just look irresistible?  I even managed to give my foster mama the Mona Lisa-esque smile.  Mom reported that I’m a well-behaved and very quiet young lady.  So far she has not heard me bark once.  I may be quiet but I’m also very alert.  I get along well with my foster canine siblings.  I like being outside in the yard among nature, so apartment living is probably not a good fit.  I also love to stay on my mama’s lap.  I know to “Sit” when told.  I walk well on a leash; I enjoy strolling the neighborhood getting to know new people.  I’m crate trained and doggy door trained.  I scratch on the door when I need to go outside and also when I’m ready to come back in.  Please ask for me Jorja on your MSRH application.  Adoption Fee $350.

Kohle (Coal-lee)

Kohle   Kohl  Kohle (2)

I’m Kohle (Coal-lee). Bet you’ve never heard that name before. Pretty unique, just like me. I’m a female black miniature schnauzer. I’m two years old and weigh fifteen pounds. I use a doggie door and also have my house training certificate. Let’s continue to talk about how unique I am. I need a yard because I HATE to walk on a leash and get ready to hear about it because I am quite a vocal girl. I’m fine with other dogs. I’m crate trained and school age kids would suite me fine. Let’s get together soon. You need a new addition to the family and I need a forever home. It’s a win-win! Fee $450


 Gradie4  Gradie  Gradie3

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.


Banjo1  IMG_3627  Banjo3

How often do you see a blonde schnauzer? I’m pretty special; like a shooting star. Actually, I guess you could call me a very light salt and pepper, but I only use that when the jokes start. 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. Let’s change that song from B-I-N-G-O to B-A-N-J-O so we can sing me into a forever home. Fee $450


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


Dot4  Dot2  Dot

If you’re ready, I’m ready. I’m Dot and I’m just a baby really! I am only nine months old and weigh twelve pounds. I’m a female schnauzer mix with natural ears and natural tail. My coat is a beautiful salt and pepper. I’ve already learned to use the doggie door and have earned my house training certificate. I am crate trained but would rather be hanging out with you. Youngsters like me need to play with their toys and cuddle with you. I’m ready for my forever home. I love playing with other dogs. I can go to a home as an only companion or with many other canine siblings. I’m nervous around young children since they like to pull on my tail and ears. You will not find me wrestling or playing with them. No sir! Not little ol’ me! I’ll go and hide when they are around. Everyone needs a little reflection time. Can I be your baby? I did mention the word READY, didn’t I? Fee $350



“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

  “…The greatest thing you’ll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return.” Hi there, the name is Walt. I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and docked tail.  I’m three years old and weigh approximately fourteen pounds. I’m proud to report that I have earned my house training certificate with a doggy door. They tell me I have tons of personality. Hey, I just love to chase those pesky birds and squirrels who invade my yard. It’s in my nature, you know. I would be fine in a home with or without other dogs. So if your interested in a sweet natured boy ask for me Walt on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350
