“Same bed, but it feels just a little bit bigger now. Our song on the radio, but it don’t sound the same. When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down. Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name. I should’ve bought you flowers and held your hand. Should’ve gave you all my hours when I had the chance. Now my baby is dancing, but she’s dancing with another man.” It’s hard to not think it’s your fault when you’re suddenly left without a home. I thought I was a good guy then. But I know I’m a better guy now! I’m Anthony and I’m a male, dark salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer with cropped ears and a docked tail. I’m about five years old and I weigh about sixteen pounds. I’m an active guy and I love to play and run in the yard. I will go on walks too…but I’d prefer just to run around the yard! I’ll go to the dog park….but I’d prefer to just run around the yard! I get along with other dogs and I can go to a home with or without another four-legged friend to play with. I’m crate trained and I’m house trained. I also know how to use a doggy door. I am a vocal guy, in a funny sort of way, and will use a combination of barks, growls and grunts to get your attention! Treat. Bark. I’m trying to say treat! Grunt. No…I mean like now. Growl. Kind of funny really! I am on an inexpensive thyroid medication to help keep my weight in check. Just a small effort on your part to keep me in tip top shape! I’m going to bring you flowers. I’m going to give you all my hours now that I’ll have the chance. I’m going to do all the things I should do….because I want to be your man! Ask for me, Anthony, on your MSRH adoption application!

1-Looking for Homes
“Leavin’ home, out on the road; I’ve been down before. Ridin’ along in this big ol’ jet plane, I’ve been thinkin’ about my home! But my love light seems so far away and I feel like it’s all been done. Somebody’s tryin’ to make me stay; You know I’ve got to be movin’ on. Oh, big ol’ jet airliner; Don’t carry me too far away!” I don’t know what I was thinking. Maybe I went for a stroll and got lost in my own thoughts. But I think I’ve always known what I wanted. I don’t think it’s too far away! It’s love in your forever home! I’m Dominic and I’m a male, salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. I’m about eighteen months old and I weigh just nine pounds. I love to be the center of attention and my ideal home is one where there are no children or other pets that might take your attention away from me! I’m so sweet, you will love all of my attention on you! But dog parks are OK. I like playing with other dogs…I just don’t want them competing with me! I love to take long walks and I’m doing very well with my leash behaviors. I’m learning that I don’t need to bark at every dog that passes by. Just some dogs. OK…fine….I’ll try harder! I’m learning my basic commands. Smart & trainable…that’s me! I’m crate trained and I’m house trained too! ”Oh, big ol’ jet airliner; Don’t carry me too far away! ’Cause it’s here that I’ve got to stay!” I want to stay…with you! So do your part and ask for me, Dominic, on your MSRH adoption application! Adoption Fee: $450Photographs courtesy of Sarah Terrall at Bark Out Loud Photography. Used with permission.

“Maybe I don’t wanna know the reason why, but lately you don’t talk to me. And darling I can’t see me in your eyes. I hold you near, but you’re so far away; And its losing you I can’t believe. And tomorrow, if I’m here without your love, you know I can’t survive. Don’t throw it all way our love!” Well, it’s too late for that I guess. Love was thrown away. But when I talk to my four-legged friends at MSRH, they say the best is yet to come! And that’s where you come in! So let’s get started! I’m Newton and I’m a male, salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. I’m about five years old and I weigh about seventeen pounds. I’m nearly back to a healthy state…just a few laser treatments to help with the healing. Man, I feel better! I’m still a little touchy about my back so I think I need to be in an all adult home for the time being. I’m a good boy. I’m sweet, good around my other four-legged friends in a neutral environment…even when I didn’t feel the best…and I’m good around my human friends too. For my forever home, I probably would do best though where I’m the only four-legged friend of the house. My groomer said I was near perfect. That’s a pretty good score considering I wasn’t at my best! I’m crate trained and I’m quickly learning my house training skills. I love to be in the car and I ride along quietly. It’s my way of showing my devotion to you! Everything about me is looking up. And I’m looking right up at you! Don’t throw it all away! Ask for me, Newton, on your MSRH adoption application!

“People say I’m crazy doing what I’m doing. Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin. When I say that I’m o.k. well they look at me kind of strange. Surely you’re not happy now you no longer play the game. I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round. I really love to watch them roll. No longer riding on the merry-go-round. I just had to let it go!”. I gave up the games. I’m focused. I’m patient. I’m waiting for you! I’m Joe Thomas (but people call me Joey) and I’m a male, salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. I’m about one year old and I weigh about sixteen pounds. I’m a good boy. Sweet and precious in the eyes of my foster mom! I am young and active and I really like to play! I enjoy playing outside and I like going to the dog park for social time. At home though, I think I would do best where I’m your only four-legged friend. I love my owner and I just don’t want to share that! Oh…and cats you ask? Forget about it! I’ll chase them all day. Non stop! It’s fun from my perspective…but not from the cat’s perspective! My other favorite activity is going for my daily walks. I’m crate trained and I’m house trained too! Completely! I also know my basic commands. When playtime is over, I am a cuddle bug! I love your attention and I love keeping you warm at night in the big human bed! Hint hint! “People asking questions, lost in confusion. Well I tell them there’s no problem, only solutions!” I’m no problem….but you’re still my solution! Ask for me, Joe Thomas (or Joey), on your MSRH adoption application! Adoption fee: $450
“This ain’t no thinkin` thing, right brain, left brain; It goes a little deeper than that! It’s a chemical, physical, emotional devotion; Passion that we can’t hold back! There’s nothin` that we need to analyze; There ain’t no rhyme or reason why!” Passion that we can’t hold back. Yes, that’s what I want in my loving forever home! I’ve got a lot of love to share and I want a home where that is shared right back! I’m Skippy and I’m a male, salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer with cropped ears and a docked tail. I’m about eight years old (but I act like I’m two!) and I weigh about twenty-three pounds. My foster mom calls me ‘the Skip-man’. I have a lot of energy and I love to run and play. Though I’m older, I would probably do well in an active family. I love my walks! But make no mistake about it, I know what cuddle time is and I can lay with you forever when you have a hand on my back! I love to be loved on as my foster mom likes to say! I’m crate trained and I’m house trained too! I get along OK with submissive dogs but not alpha or otherwise aggressive dogs. I would do best in a home where I’m your only four-legged friend. I can be food aggressive and, if I’m lucky enough to be getting your attention on the couch, I don’t want another dog distracting you! I might be OK if there is just one other dog of the submissive type. I love to play at the dog park with four-legged friends…it’s just a territory issue. Because of it, I need to go to an all-adult home, just in case. I have a condition called Colitis that I’m being treated for. For now I am on a special food and I take one medication. I may be off the medication in one year if I am responding to treatment. It’s a ‘I-have-to-let-you-know’ thing….but you wouldn’t know anything about it by watching me play and interact! I think I would be the perfect companion for a senior individual or couple. I’m super sweet with my owners, I love to snuggle on the couch and my favorite night-time place is your big human bed! ”Forget mathematical equations and self help psychology! Gray matter don’t matter much darlin’ when it’s gettin` down to you and me!” Don’t be thinking! Just do it! Ask for me, Skippy, on your MSRH adoption application! Adoption Fee: $250
