Money can’t buy happiness. Love is free! Of course, if you have a little spare cash to spend on doggy treats, that would be an added bonus! I’m Ava and I’m a female, black Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. I’m about two and a half years old and weigh 15 pounds. I’m a sweet girl, but am shy upon first meeting. I have a calm demeanor and think would do well around children. I’m great around four legged friends. Even cats! I’ve earned my house training certificate with honors! I am crate trained but, my foster reported that they haven’t had much use for it since I’m a well behaved young lady. I’m not much of a barker so would be great in an apartment environment. I need some additional training with the leash. I just get so excited and want to pull you like I’m pulling a sleigh! “Mush” Mush” I’m great being groomed and bathed. Do you have a little time for me to warm up to you and live happily ever after? Then ask for me, Ava on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

JoJo

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 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. 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. Ask for your new best friend, JoJo on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Wrangler

“I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps “Oh look at that!” Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again… and they won’t be able to forget me- ever.” My name is Wrangler and just like that shooting star I’m a male Merle Miniature Schnauzer. I’m about three years old and weigh twenty one pounds. My foster family states that I could lose a few lbs. so that means no extra treats for me. <Sad Face> My ears are cropped and my tail is docked. Losing your only home and family can be tough on one’s self esteem so I am looking for my second chance. I want a family, who will be patient while I overcome my shyness and build my confidence. I haven’t been tested around children so I should probably go to a home with older children. I spend my time playing with toys. I know commands like “Sit”, “Stay” and “Come”. I do well being bathe and groomed. I get really excited when you show me the leash. That means we are going for a walk and we can really bond during that time. I love walks so much that that I know how to behave while out on one. I am proud to report that I have earned my house training certificate and know how to use the doggy door. I get along great with other four legged friends so I can go to a home with or without other dogs. Are you interested in a long term relationship filled with love? Then ask for me Wrangler on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

He’d fly through the air with the greatest of ease, that daring young man on the flying trapeze.” I’ve been told that I am agile, an entertainer, athletic and a perfect showman. My name is Austin. I’m a male, black and brindle Miniature Schnauzer mix. I have natural ears and a natural tail. I’m three years old and weigh eighteen pounds. I’m an energetic boy who loves romping in the yard. I love playing with my toys. I enjoy belly rubs in the morning and cuddle time in the evening. I am the perfect candidate for agility training, hunting squirrels, patrolling your back yard, a canoeing partner, hiking buddy or even as an addition to your jogging group! I want to earn my keep and make you proud! I would prefer a home with older children. I want them to teach and direct me too. I would do best with a non-alpha playmate. Those guys like to take all the credit! I want to be the one in the center ring. I behave around cats. I’m quiet in my crate and have earned my house training certificate. Do you want to fly through the air. .on my flying trapeze, then ask for me Austin on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Newberry

“There’s a moment of orderly silence before a football play begins. Players are in position, linemen are frozen, and anything is possible. Then, like a traffic accident, stuff begins to randomly collide.” My name is Newberry. I’m a male Salt and Pepper Miniature Schnauzer. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I am about four years old and weigh sixteen pounds. The good news is that I am crate trained and that means I am one small step closer to earning my house training certificate. I get along fine with other dogs and will do great in a house with or without other canine friends. I have an old football injury that doesn’t bother me now. Sometimes I don’t put all of my weight on it, but other times I run around and forget that it is there! I’ve learned a good lesson though; cars are not tackling dummies! So, if you are interested in a schnauzer that has his head in the game ask for me, Newberry on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

I am working hard on earning my house training certificate! Just a few more tests and I will pass with flying colors.

“Oh  .. Why you look so sad, the tears are in your eyes . . .come on and come to me now, and don’t be ashamed to cry, let me see you through, ’cause I’ve seen the dark side too.
When the night falls on you, you don’t know what to do, Nothing you confess could make me love you less …I’ll stand by you.” My name is Nikki and I’m a female Miniature Schnauzer. My body is black with tan and my face has white furnishings. I’m about 11 months old and weigh fourteen pounds. I have natural ears and a docked tail. When I was rescued by MSRH I was in bad shape, because of heart worms. I was such a youngling and haven’t quite earned my house training certificate.  I’m eager to learn and only want to make you proud of me. I am very playful and very friendly, so I should be great with children. Oh, we would have so much fun since I have the energy to keep up with them or a canine friend to chase. That would be the most fun. I am happy to say that I am crate trained and that is one step closer to earning my house training certificate. I’ve come such a long way and all I need now is a forever home to call my own. A home full of love, a soft bed, a little peanut butter every now and then. Yes!!  Peanut Butter. So if you want me to stand by you, ask for Nikki on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Jared

Hi there, my name is Jared. I’m a white male miniature schnauzer. I’ve got natural ears and a docked tail. I am five years old and weigh fourteen pounds. I am human oriented so you won’t find me chasing or wrestling with other canine companions. I will however bark at them if they are playing or wrestling with each other. If they are on their best behavior then so am I. I am happy to report that I have earned my house training certificate. How about we sit on this couch and enjoy some cuddle time? You must also know that I like to give kisses. Hey are you reading a book? Why don’t you just pet me instead . . yes there . . behind my ear! I love chewing on elk antlers and any other treats you may have. Scratch my beard or play with my face and I will be your best friend. I like protecting the back yard. I will bark at people, dogs or squirrels as they pass by. I’m on the search for anyone who likes taking walks or will take me to the dog park. Are you interested in a sweet boy who loves to give kisses? Then ask for me Jared, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350

Captain Cash

“Hold fast to dreams . . for when dreams go . . .life is a barren field frozen with snow!” The name is Captain Cash. I’m a Silver and Pepper male Miniature Schnauzer. I’m about two years old and weigh sixteen pounds. Can you believe my previous owners abandoned me on the streets in San Marcos, Texas? Kind people picked me up and contacted MSRH and now I know my luck will completely change. I’m a very obedient schnauzer who really likes to play, but I love to cuddle that much more. My personality is Non Alpha and I get along great with other dogs, so I can go to a home with or without other canine companions. I have not been tested around cats, but I am so obedient I should be fine. I also haven’t been tested around children so I should probably go to a home where everyone is over the age of twelve. My foster mom reports that I behave during baths and enjoy being groomed. Naturally I like to look my best. I have earned my house training certificate. I will not jump on furniture unless invited. I want to know you want me there next to you cuddling and loving on you. Do you want to give me a belly rub? Yes, I’m always available for that! My foster mom reports that I will sit and stare at you when I’m hungry, want attention or need to be let outside. Please refer to Image 3 above. I’m holding on to my dream of you, my new family. Ask for Captain Cash on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450

Alonzo

“There was something in the air that night, the stars were bright, Alonzo. They were shining there for you and me for liberty, Alonzo.” My name is Alonzo, and I’m a male white miniature schnauzer. I’m three years old and weigh about twenty one pounds. I’ve got natural ears and a natural tail. I’ve earned my house training certificate and I know how to use a doggy door. I get along with other dogs so I could go home as your only best friend or as an addition to your pack. I have not been tested around cats. I’m looking for a special family that will give me patience and time to bond with them. . .you see life on the streets makes you so independent. You learn to rely on only yourself. Give me time, attention and a bit more training and I can be your very best friend. MSRH volunteers and my foster are working on my building my confidence and discipline. They report that I play like a puppy with toys, other dogs and my human. I ride well in the car and am a big fan of dinner time. Let’s take a walk, play in the yard or you could give me some of that yummy peanut butter. Ask for me Alonso, on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $350
