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

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

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

“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

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

I’m Deacon and I’m a male, white Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about four years old and I weigh about fifteen pounds.  I’ve really got my step back since coming to MSRH.  I’m having the time of my life now….except that I’d like to be in a forever home of course!  I’m a sweet boy and I crave the attention of my human.  I also like my four-legged friends and I play well with everyone (and every thing) that I contact!  I’m crate trained, have learned to use a doggy door, and I’m putting the final touches on my house training skills.    Ask for me, Deacon, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

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

“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

“I watch the sun go down like everyone of us.  I’m hoping that the dawn will bring a sign;  A better place for those who will come after us….this time.  I’m just a dreamer;  I dream my life away, oh yeah!  I’m just a dreamer who dreams of better days.  I’m just a dreamer who’s searching for the way.”  Ozzie Osbourne says there’s a way.  I’m sure he meant that there’s a way to your forever home!  You want a fun loving puppy?  Let’s get this party started!  I’m Ozzie and I’m a male, black Schnauzer mix with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m about one year old and I weigh about twenty-eight pounds.  I’m a fun loving lad – hide & seek anyone?  Yea, that’s me behind the bush.  Don’t lie…you never saw me!  I love to play and I always want to have a toy close by.  In fact, offer me a treat when I have a toy in my mouth and I’ll try to eat the treat and keep the toy in my mouth!  Mom taught me a trick though….and I will lay my toy down to catch a treat in mid-air!  My toys keep me busy while you’re busy…but make no mistake….toys are mobile and I take them to wherever you happen to be!  I’ve really come out of my shell at MSRH.  I’m learning so many new things and, most importantly, I’m learning that there are people who I can trust and who want to be my friend.  How lovely!  I still prefer a home where things are relatively calm and gentle.  But even so, I’ve proven that I can do well around children!  I take a minute to warm up but then look out…I’m a love machine with kids!  I know that everyone needs a vacuum cleaner but that thing is to be despised.  It’s evil.  And I bark at it to keep it in line!  Other dogs are a nice addition to a forever home…they can keep me company and help me burn off my puppy energy!  My foster mom calls me “All Puppy”!  I do like to talk and I have a deep bark…probably from the ‘mix’ in me!  That goes for my long legs too!  I love to run and I make my foster mom laugh when I do.  I do love to have fun!  I love attention from my human friends.  It’s definitely something I haven’t been used to…and I’m enjoying it a lot!  See…I’m not active all the time!  I’m crate trained during the day but at night, I get to sleep with my foster mom.  I’m a foot bandit.  Ask my mom about it!  I’ve done really well with the doggy door and mom is pleased to report that she has signed my house training certificate!  I’m so young, you can train me to be exactly the kind of pet you always hoped for.  I know that’s what I’m hoping for!  Mom says I’m nothing but a big, playful love bug!  I’m just a dreamer…and I’m dreaming of your forever home!  If you have a gentle hand, I can be the dog that you need!  Ask for me, Ozzie, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $250

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
